20mm Purbeck Chippings
Our Purbeck chippings are one of our most sought-after Decorative Garden Stones, they have been a popular choice by landscapers and gardeners for many years. The 20mm Purbeck Chippings are an affordable and easy way to decorate your garden, whether you want to cover a large area for a feature piece or something more subtle like a border going around your garden. Because the colours are more muted and subtle, they are a great addition if you want to avoid a dull garden but don't want something too loud.
As stated before, the 20mm Purbeck Chippings are a neutral selection of Garden Chippings compared to others we stock. The Purbeck Stones consist of shades of cream, grey and white. These subtle colours are ideal for those looking for decorative stones that will fit all kinds of aesthetics. These colours will be a great fit if you have, for example, dark-coloured Patio Slabs, as they would contrast nicely with each other. Equally, if you had a cream coloured Paving Slabs, that would match and fit seamlessly.
One thing to be aware of; although the Purbeck Chippings are very versatile, they are not fish-friendly. If you are thinking of using them in a pond or surrounding a pond, your fish would need to be in a separate area.

Purbeck Chippings 20mm for Pathways
20mm Purbeck Chippings are frequently used to create a simple yet effective path or driveway. There are a variety of ways you can use these chippings in your front garden, you can create a driveway for your car, or maybe a bordered pathway around your home.
These chippings are angled for a rustic, natural look. This makes them safe to use for driveways and pathways without your car wheels or the stones themselves being damaged. The Purbeck Chippings are giving you both form and function because, not only are they providing a stable base for your driveway, but they will also make your drive and pathway look chic and elegant.
Creating a driveway using Purbeck Chippings is a cost-efficient way to achieve a minimalist yet modern look for the forefront of your property. If you wanted to add some depth and sleekness to your driveway without breaking the bank because it is much cheaper when compared to Block Paving. If you are fond of light, more muted tones for your driveway then the Purbeck is the one for you.
Furthermore, one of the best aspects of decorative stones for a pathway is that they require very little maintenance. All you need to do is to top them up every few years to make sure your drive or pathway is level and safe to drive and walk on.

How to Lay Purbeck Chippings in Your Garden
Laying Purbeck Chippings around your garden is not a complicated process. If you are new to DIY-ing then this is a great project to start with. To make things slightly easier, we have created a little guide to ease you on your way. However, you always have the option to hire a professional if you want a guarantee that everything has been done in the best possible way.
The first thing you need to do is create a stable base that will be safe to drive or walk on, as well as offer good drainage. We recommend using Limestone Type 1 (MOT Type 1) to level out the area - this is the preferred product by many Landscapers as the Limestone Type 1 is graded 40mm Limestone and great for creating a level base.
Once step one is complete, now you need to map out where you want the stones to go, considering both width and depth of the area. Once you have created the blueprint, you can go ahead and use our Quantity Calculator that will figure out how much base layer and Purbeck Chippings you require for your desired spot. As a general guideline, we think 50mm is the optimal depth for the base.
For added peace of mind, we strongly suggest that you implement a layer of Weed Fabric. If you can, please do not skip this step as it will help you in the long term by hindering the growth and spread of weeds, ruining the aesthetic. We supply Weed Membranes in a range of sizes so you can buy the one that fits your garden the best.
Here at Stone Zone, we stock Grid Stabilisers, which are essential for covering larger areas and areas that get a lot of foot and vehicular traffic. They are also suitable for private roads and long driveways.
After these optional steps have been taken, you can lay your cream garden chippings onto the surface, at a depth of 30mm - 50mm. Hopefully you will have some of these garden chippings left as and when this area needs topping up.
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.
