Blue Slate Rockery
The Stone Zone's Blue Slate Rockery are perfect if you looking for larger stones and boulders to decorate your garden. With a beautiful array of colours ranging from powdery blue to light grey to plum when dry, these natural stones are much loved by landscapers and homeowners. The colours also mean that they look great in modern gardens, especially those with a darker colour palette.
Along with the Blue Slate Rockery, you can also purchase 20mm Blue Slate and 40mm Blue Slate, which, put all together will enable you to create attractive garden features that can be placed as a focal point in your front or back garden. You will notice that the colours of the stones deepen when wet and become glossier, which will only add to the aesthetics of your garden.
The individual pieces of the Blue Slate Rockery are roughly 250mm, but as they are a natural product, the sizing can vary.
Blue Slate Rockery for Your Garden
If you are thinking about purchasing the Blue Slate Rockery for your garden and outdoor areas, we have some design ideas that you can easily implement. Due to the sizes of the stones being much larger, you will not need as many of them when compared to 20 or 40mm stones, this makes the Slate Rockery a more economical option to make feature pieces with. You don't necessarily have to do anything too elaborate to create a feature area with these rocks; even if you place them artfully in the centre of your garden, it will create a lovely focal point; add some smaller pebbles and chippings and you're good to go!
A second way to utilise the Blue Slate Rockery is to use them as dividers in your garden. The Rockery is a unique and affordable way to create dividers around your garden, you can possibly arrange one to divide your paved area and your turf. Furthermore, if you have a sloped garden, you can also use the rockery to divide the areas and create a tiered effect to make it look even more appealing.
Blue Slate Rockery for Your Water Feature
The Blue Slate Rockery can be used whether you have a big or small garden, in fact, we think adding Rockery to small gardens can be a great method of decorating the area. Water Features are a versatile feature to add to your garden as they are available in a wide range of sizes and price points. The Blue Slates will make a lovely addition to a rockery pool that you may have or want to create, or around other features that you may already possess.
Some alternative water features that you can consider for your garden are ponds, water holes, and mini-waterfalls. All these features will pair well with the Blue Slate Rockery and enable you to create an eye-catching garden feature. If you decide to have a pond in your garden, you can even add fish to them as the Slate Rockery are not harmful to fish.
How to Make a Garden Pond
A Garden Pond is a simple DIY Project that you can take on if you have a little DIY experience. You can do this by purchasing a small plastic pond from a local garden centre and making a start. Firstly you need to analyse your garden and decide where you want the pond to go. Make sure to not rush this step because depending where it goes might determine how much maintenance you have to do. For example, if you place it under a tree you will definitely have to regularly fish out all the fallen leaves and debris on a regular basis.
Once you have determined where your pond will be installed, you have to decide if you want it ground level which will entail digging a hole the exact size of your pond, or whether you want it slightly elevated. if you want it elevated then we'd recommend purchasing sleepers to retain it.
Now that the more technical aspects of the pond is done, you can get on with the creative parts. Consider using stones of different sizes along with the Blue Slate Rockery to create a textured, professional-looking pond that will look like it's a part of your garden. You can also purchase some aquatic plants that will add nature and more colours to your pond.
