Cerney Cotswold Chippings 20mm
The 20mm Cerney Cotswolds Chippings is an understated mix of cream and gold stones that will enable you to create a calm and serene garden and driveway, adding warmth and some colour to the area. As they are 20mm, they are the perfect size for pathways and driveways. Alongside their more angular shape, they are perfect for locking together and creating a stable drive and walkway.
As we just stated, these 20mm chippings contain a lovely combination of cream and gold stones, colours that brighten and liven up your garden or driveway without much effort. If you want to create a garden to have some bright colours without it being too much, then the Cerney Cotswold is a safe choice as the colours are just enough to add some brightness to your garden yet simple enough for it to not take over the entire garden. Depending on what style you want your garden to have, these chippings can fit a variety of designs. The yellow tones will contrast nicely with dark brown or even black furniture, or on the opposite end of the spectrum, these stones will also look excellent with white, cream and even wooden furniture.
When purchasing the Cerney Cotswolds, please remember that they are not fish-friendly. As these chippings are naturally derived they are not safe for fish, so if you are planning to decorate your fish pond with these, we'd suggest choosing another type of decorative stone.
Cerney Cotswold Chippings 20mm for Pathways
The 20mm Cerney Cotswolds are an excellent way to create a pleasing and functional driveway for your home. If you want to create an attractive and durable pathway leading up to your house, or leading up to your garden, these chippings are an excellent choice. With a slight pop of colour, they create a welcoming atmosphere for your home.
The 20mm Cerney Cotswold Chippings are derived in an angular shape, meaning they can join together better, enabling them to create a stable and level pathway and driveway. These chippings are an excellent option for more than one reason, not only can create a safe and secure driveway that will be stable to drive and walk on, but it will also look elegant.
If you want to create a beautiful driveway but do not want to spend too much on it without compromising on the quality, then the Cerney Cotswold will be appropriate for you as you can cover large areas with these stones without it being too costly. Especially when you compare it to other common materials that are used to design driveways, such as Block Paving and Decorative Chippings, the Cerney Cotswold is much more affordable. Furthermore, if drainage and flooding are something you factor in and are worried about, then you need not be worried as these stones are excellent for drainage.
Finally, if you want something for your driveway that does not require much time-consuming maintenance then this is perfect for you. If high-maintenance driveways aren’t something you want then all you have to do is top up these stones once a year to make sure that your driveway is stable to drive on, and that is it, nothing else is required.
Cerney Cotswold Chippings 20mm for Gardens
These Chippings can be an attractive and appealing part of your garden, either as a border or a dedicated feature area while still looking elegant and natural; something that compliments the rest of your garden. It is an easy and simple way to jazz up your garden without doing too much to it.
As mentioned earlier, these stones come in golds and creams, that will enhance your garden no matter the season. During the summer, these stones will look bright in the sun, and during the colder, wetter months, the moisture will change the colours of the stones and become slightly darker, which only adds to their charm.
Another great use for these stones is to use them with your flowers and plants to create mini features. They are an excellent addition to plant and flower beds just to add more colour and texture to go alongside your flowers. Don't worry, they will not have any adverse effects on them at all.
These stones are beneficial to the plants as they can retain both moisture and heat so they can keep your plants warm during cold months and cool during warm months.

How to Lay Cerney Cotswold Chippings 20mm in Your Garden
We think the best option when completing any kind of landscaping project is to hire a professional landscaper because they will make sure that all the work is done securely and safely. However, if you are determined to take on a fairly uncomplicated project, then laying out these chippings is not a particularly hard job, especially if you have done DIY-ing before! To ease your way a little bit and give you a rough idea of what to expect, we have created a little guide:
The first thing to do before you go anywhere near the chippings is to create a stable base for the chippings to be laid on. The most popular material used is Limestone Type 1 (MOT Type 1), for this step. MOT Type 1 is a graded 40mm Limestone that is preferred by most Landscapers to create an even and durable base.
Once your base has been laid properly, decide and mark out where you want the stones to go. After than has been decided, you can use the Quantity Calculator on our website, which will do the difficult for you and calculate how much base layer and Cerney Cotswolds you need to complete your project. As a general rule, 50mm is the most optimal depth for the base.
Stone Zone also supplies Grid Stabilisers, which are perfect for going over larger areas that have to endure a lot of traffic. Plus, they are also fitting for private roads and longer driveways.
Although this step can be ignored as it's not vital, we highly recommend that you also purchase Weed Fabric. We strongly suggest you do this because it is very useful when you want to stop weeds from sprouting and spreading through the stones or the fabric. We supply a wide range of sizes of fabric so you can purchase the one that fits your needs the best.
The Cerney Cotswold 20mm, is also an excellent choice for creating elegant garden borders, so you get little splashes and hints of colour all through your garden. They are easy to install as they can be laid directly on the surface you currently have, including artificial grass, weed fabric, and turf.
PLEASE NOTE: Due to our Decorative Stones being a naturally-sourced product, there will always be some variation from batch to batch, especially in terms of colour. On occasion, your garden stones may be very dusty; we recommend hosing your new stones down to wash them and reveal their true colour.
