Heritage Quartz Chippings 14mm
If you're looking for a truly premium and unique decorative garden stone, look no further than our new Heritage Quartz Chippings! What makes these decorative chippings stand out from the rest is the variety of natural stones that make up this range; Quartz stone, Marble stone and Granite stone!
With the mixture of different, high-end stones, the colour shades within this garden stone range are simply beautiful. The main colours to be seen within this stone is a soft buff colour, and when you look closer to the marble stones in particular, you'll see their natural, stunning streaks throughout. Rusty red shades and oranges also feature in these chippings to give a really rustic effect.
Classed as angular chippings, these stones are the perfect shape and size for paths and driveways due to 'locking' in place when weight is put on them.
Heritage Quartz Chippings for your Path or Driveway
Set your house apart from the rest with these colourful driveway chippings! Decorative stones are becoming increasingly popular for use on a drive for many reasons. One reason is that it makes your driveway completely customisable; we have so many chippings to choose from, you can make it completely your own. Other reasons for opting for decorative aggregates is that it is cost-effective, low maintenance and fairly easy to lay down in comparison to other options such as Block Paving.
Heritage Chippings lock together when they are driven on or stepped on, which make them a comfortable option under foot. They make the perfect option for an area that doesn't necessarily serve a purpose; perhaps as a path around your house, or as an area around your shed.
Heritage Quartz Chippings for your Garden
When you're looking at updating your garden, decorative chippings are the last piece of the puzzle that really make your landscape come to life! Whether you've just laid a garden patio with Porcelain or Sandstone paving, or you've gone for some Artificial Grass, Heritage Quartz chippings make a lovely border around these garden features. The buff colours make for a very neutral choice and will go with many, warm-coloured features.
Why not use Heritage Quartz as a decorative feature in your garden? If you've got a rockery area that needs a splash of colour, these garden stones could be the missing piece that your rockery needs. Many people have also added Heritage Quartz to a water feature or a pond. When these stones get wet, that's when you can really admire their beautiful colours! Please note that Heritage Quartz chippings aren't fish-friendly, so be aware when considering adding these to a pond.

How to Lay Heritage Quartz Chippings in Your Garden
If you are now thinking of buying Heritage Quartz Chippings to create a decorative garden feature, or maybe as a drive or pathway, this guide will give you all the hints and tips you need. As mentioned before, it's easier than you might think!
If you want to take the professional approach which will ensure you have a stable base for your chippings, use Limestone Type 1, also referred to as MOT Type 1, which is a graded, 40mm Limestone. This has a clay-like consistency that will also act as a cushion under your stones.
Before you buy your base layer and chippings, use a tape measure so you have an indication of the area you're looking to cover; you can then use our Quantity Calculator to work out how much stone you'll need. We would suggest having a base of 50mm.
Dig out the desired area with a depth between 50mm - 150mm, ensuring this includes 50mm for your MOT Type 1 base and 50mm for your Grey Chippings.
Add your 40mm Limestone Type 1 to your dug-out area and ensure a minimum of 50mm is laid. Not only will this provide a durable base, but it will also aid drainage.
We have many different weed-prevention options, but the most effective is using a strong Weed Fabric, to eliminate the worry of weeds ruining your feature/driveway; these come in multiple sizes for you to choose from.
Once the fabric has been laid, you can start putting your Quartz Chippings down! Remember to add this to at least a 50mm depth.
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.
