Stone Zone Decorative Stone Guide

Decorative Stone has quickly become our best-selling range in recent weeks, and to celebrate this we're taking you through our most popular Decorative Stones! From basic path gravel, to colourful chippings and stunning slate, we have it all to create the perfect feature in your garden!

#1 Scottish Pebbles

From £4.45 per maxi bag (ex. vat)

This range of Pebbles are a long-standing best-seller. This is most likely due to the beautiful combination of colours. Scottish Pebbles contain a mixture of predominantly warm & mid browns, brick reds, golds and even peach colours. The colours can be appreciated most when the stone is wet, as they really transform to a deep mixture of colours.

Popular Uses

  • Garden feature
  • Pond surrounds
  • Front garden feature

This particular stone is premium granite; sea-worn and naturally rounded from the Scottish Highlands. This makes the stone a more eco-friendly option as well as it hasn't been imported overseas. This stone is also fish-friendly, making it perfect for adding to a pond. 

These pebbles are available in many different sizes (including cobbles): 8-14mm, 14-20mm, 20-30mm, 30-50mm, 50-80mm and 80-120mm. The most popular sizes are 20-30mm and 30-50mm, which make a great addition to a water feature or pond.

#2 Plum Slate

From £4.01 per maxi bag (ex. vat)

This is another all-time, best-selling range. The stunning colour is also a likely reason for this, which is a deep shade of purple. The colour is also most appreciated when wet, as it goes from a mid lilac colour to a lovely, dark grape purple. 

Popular Uses

  • Garden borders around paving/turf
  • Plant toppers
  • Water features 

This stone is a natural slate which is flat with an angular, rustic finish. It is quarried in North Wales which also makes this a more eco-friendly choice when considering the distance it has been delivered from. With its fish-friendly qualities, it is suitable for a pond. This product has been recycled and is lime free.

Our slate range also comes in blue, green and black colours, which go through the same transformation process when wet. Two different sizes are available: 20mm and 40mm

#3 Black Ice Chippings

£4.45 per maxi bag (ex. vat)

This is our most popular range of Chippings, they really have a premium look wherever placed and also consist of stunning, striking colours of white, grey and black. The colours transform slightly when wet but can definitely be appreciated when dry as well. 

Popular Uses

  • Pathways
  • Garden borders around paving
  • Front/back garden feature

This stone is a mixture of angular, basalt and marble chippings. These chippings are iron-free but aren't fish-friendly, so wouldn't be suitable for use in fish ponds. 

Also part of this family are Ice Blue Chippings, Polar Ice Chippings and Polar White Chippings. They are all available as 20mm chippings.

#4 Golden Gravel

£2.66 per maxi bag (ex. vat)

Our Golden Gravel is a long-standing best-seller for many reasons. This gravel has a variety of uses and is a very lost-cost option for those on a budget. The colous are also really attractive compared to everyday shingle, consisting of a mixture of predominantly gold and beige with some grey and white stones as well.

Popular Uses

  • Pathways and drives
  • Garden borders around paving
  • Plant toppers

This stone is quarried from local, shingle beaches and even contains some shells here and there! This also makes this stone an eco-friendly option which is naturally fish-friendly and suitable for ponds.

And last but not least - Our Cotswold Chippings! These are popular due to their versatility and neutral colours that work well in any garden landscape. The main colours in this stone are cream and beige which go slightly darker when wet.

Popular Uses

  • Pathways and drives
  • Garden borders around paving
  • Plant toppers

This stone is an angular chipping made of dolomitic limestone. This product isn't fish-friendly, so can't be used within ponds.
