Ice Blue Chippings 20mm
The 20mm Ice Blue Chippings are a mix of light blues and greys, that is understated yet very attractive. If you are looking to decorate your garden with subtle colours but still want a sense of elegance, the Ice Blue garden stones are a great choice as they glitter and sparkle when reflecting the sun. Although these garden stones will elevate any area, we think they will truly shine in modern properties with more neutral colours, and garden or pathway borders. They are excellent if you are looking for decorative stones to compliment your Sandstone or Porcelain Paving. One thing to keep in mind when purchasing these chippings is that they are not fish friendly, therefore we would advise you to NOT use them in a fishpond.
Our 20mm Ice Blue Chippings are one of our most loved and sought-after garden stones. These chippings are regarded as being angular rather than spherical, which along with the fact that they are 20mm in size makes them the perfect fit for being used to create driveways or paths leading to your garden. With their soft colours, they are bound to create an elegant and minimalist vibe for the forefront of your home.
Consisting of light blue and grey stones, these stones are very pleasant to the eyes and are easy to design around. Their soft shading will look good with a wide range of designs and colour palettes.
Ice Blue Chippings 20mm for Your Drive
Our 20mm Ice Blue Chippings are prominently used by our customers to design their driveways and to create a statement right at the entrance of their property. Stone Zone is one of the leading suppliers of decorative stones and materials to make your driveway look exactly how you want it.
A further reason why these chippings are so popular amongst our customer base is that they are a low-maintenance and economical way to decorate your garden that doesn't often require professional landscapers to install them. Designing your garden with these chippings will not break the bank, especially when compared to other materials, such as Block Paving. And as a bonus, all you need to do to keep your drive in top shape is to replenish the stones once a year. This will ensure that the ground is level and stable to drive and walk on.
Ice Blue Chippings 20mm as a Decorative Garden Feature
If you want to create attractive garden features without them taking away from the rest of the garden then these Ice Blue Chippings are a great choice due to their muted colours. They will work well no matter the size of the feature or the garden. No matter whether you have dark-coloured garden furniture or light-coloured ones, these chippings will compliment them all, and will also look wonderful on decking or grass, both real and artificial.
A common way of using the Ice Blue Chippings is to use the garden features that are already present to elevate them further; or to create a border around your home and garden. A border is especially nice if you want to add spots of colour in your garden without oversaturating it.

How to Install Chippings as a Driveway
Laying down the 20mm Ice Blue Chippings to create a driveway is not a particularly difficult job. If you have some experience in DIY-ing, you may even be able to complete it on your own. If you want to tackle this project, we have some tips for you to consider.
As a general rule of thumb, we think it’s best to create the most stable base possible for your garden stones to lay on. To achieve this, the product we recommend is Limestone Type 1, also referred to as MOT Type 1, which is a graded, 40mm Limestone.
Proceed to measure your driveway and the area you'd like to lay your stones on. Once you have all the information, visit our website and use the Quantity Calculator, which will work out how much of the base material and decorative stone you will need to complete your project. We recommend you have enough base material to fill up a depth of 50mm.
When digging out the area for your driveway, make sure to dig to a depth ranging between 500mm to 150mm. You must dig enough to cover 50mm's worth of the Limestone Type 1 and your Ice Blue Chippings, each.
Proceed to add your Limestone to the dugout area - again make sure this layer is 50mm deep. This will aid in providing a secure base and also help with drainage when it rains.
To go along with your base layer, we also suggest you install a layer of Weed Fabric to make sure that no unwanted weeds sprout through the chippings. The fabric will ensure that your driveway is constantly looking fresh. We stock Weed Fabric in a wide range of sizes so you can choose which ones will be best for you.
Once you have laid your Limestone and your Weed Fabric, you are finally ready to lay down your Ice Blue Chippings. Please remember to add enough chippings to make it 50mm deep.
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.
