Plum Slate Rockery
If you're looking for large rockery boulders for your garden, look no further than our popular, Slate Rockery range! Our Plum Slate is particularly popular within our rockery range; boasting beautiful plum / burgundy colours that naturally occur in this garden stone.
Complementing the matching Plum Slate & Plum Paddlestones, these create a bold and eye-catching feature within your front garden or back garden. The colours especially come through when wet; this would make a great pond addition due to its fish-friendly properties.
Each Plum Slate Rockery piece measures approximately 250mm in size but can vary.
Plum Slate Rockery for Your Garden
If you're looking to incorporate Plum Slate Rockery into your outdoor landscape, we have some popular ideas for you. Due to their large size, our Plum Slate Rockery is great value, and you only need a few to really make a statement piece! You could simply position a few of these rocks in the centre of your garden, or maybe as a little feature in your front garden, and plant some wildflowers around them for a really beautiful, yet natural look.
Other uses for Plum Slate Rockery include utilising them as garden dividers. Rockery is great for partitioning one landscape from another, like paving from grass or a gravel path from a pond. Sometimes, where gardens are on a slope, people like to separate the garden into two different levels, Plum Slate Rockery can act as a nice feature that blends the two different levels into one.
Plum Slate Rockery for Your Water Feature
However big or small your garden is, adding a water feature makes for a great viewing point in your outdoor landscape. The great thing about water features is that you can buy or make them as big or small as you like. Plum Slate Rockery goes really well within a rockery pool in your garden, which are great for attracting a whole host of wildlife.
Other water features can include ponds; you can make them as jazzy as you want! You could add water fountains to really make it a statement piece, or simply have it as a small, self-contained pond. If you use Plum Slate Rockery in your garden pond, you can still add fish to it due to its fish-friendly properties.
How to Make a Garden Pond
Making a garden pond is actually easier than you think! You can simple buy a plastic pond from your local garden centre, and go from there. Planning where you want to put your pond is probably the most crucial step though, as you'll want to pick a space in your garden that doesn't get too much sun, but also isn't directly under the tree.
Once you've decided on where you want to place your pond, you can decide whether you want to dig a hole in the ground and have it ground level, or you can see how it would look as a raised pond, and even use Sleepers to retain it.
Decorating your garden pond is the most exciting part of the process! Start with smaller stones such as Slate stones, adding some larger Paddlestones and then finish it off with a few larger rocks such as Plum Slate Rockery. There are also plants you can get to go under water in your pond and to sit on top of the water.

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.
