Purbeck Chippings 20mm
The Purbeck chippings are one of our most sought-after decorative stones, they have been a popular choice by landscapers and gardeners for many years. The 20mm Purbeck Chippings is 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 much-muted selection of pebbles compared to others we stock. The Purbeck is compiled of shades of cream, grey and white. These neutral 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, a dark-coloured patio, as they would contrast with each other. Equally, if you had a cream-coloured patio, that would match and fit seamlessly. Whether you have a modern garden or a classical one.
One thing to be aware, 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, you have to make sure that you don't keep your fish in the same 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 and rustic, which 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 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.
Purbeck Chippings 20mm for Gardens
If you want to jazz up your garden a little bit more, and want to bulk it up, a great way to do that is to use decorative stones. The 20mm Purbeck Chippings are an excellent way to do so without it taking away from other feature pieces around your garden.
As we have already stated, the Purbeck Chippings are an amalgamation of cream, white and grey stones, and they are more than capable of adding pops of colour and some extra oomph to your garden. They are also a great choice if you are not a fan of bright colours and are looking for something more understated, then you should pick these stones.
If you have many plants in our garden or are thinking of planting some flowers, these chippings are a great way to decorate beds and fill up empty spaces. Now you can create small decoration pieces with your flowers and stones.

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, and a step that you cannot skip, is to create a stable base that will be safe to drive. We recommend using Limestone Type 1 (MOT Type 1) to level out the area - this is the preferred method by many Landscapers as the Limestone Type 1 is graded 40mm Limestone and is the most popular when creating a level base.
Once you have completed the first step, now you need to map out where you want the stones to go both width and depth. 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.
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.
For extra security, one that we think is important, 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, especially through the stones, ruining the aesthetic. We supply Weed Fabric in a range of sizes so you can buy the one that fits your garden the best.
The 20mm Purbeck Chippings is a great option for creating borders as well, especially if you are looking for some unassuming and understated, you can still add some colour to your garden without it being too much. They are easy to install as you can lay them directly on the surface, including artificial grass, weed fabric and turf.
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.
