We recommend using a stone that measures between 14mm and 20mm for paths and driveways. This is so the stones are large enough not to risk getting stuck in your tyre or in your shoes. The fact that these chippings are angular also means that they lock together well, forming a strong base for you to walk on.

How to Lay Polar Ice Chippings in Your Drive
Have you been inspired to add Polar Ice Chippings to your garden? Whether you want to add these decorative stones as a garden feature, or use it on your drive or pathway around your home, this guide will give you all the hints and tips you need!
Most Landscapers would advise you to install a stable base for the decorative stone to be laid on. Limestone Type 1, also referred to as MOT Type 1, would be the best option for this, which is a graded, 40mm Limestone.
One of the first steps is measuring the area of where you'd like the chippings to go, once this is done, you can 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 recommend installing a layer of Weed Fabric to ensure pesky weeds don't start coming through the fabric; these come in multiple sizes for you to choose from.
Once the fabric has been laid, you can start putting your Grey 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.
