Sunset Red Chippings 14-20mm
If you're looking for a decorative garden stone that is completely different to anything you've seen before, opt for the stunning Sunset Red Chippings! This unique range of decorative stones has two main colours: one is a golden peach stone and the other is a striking, brick red coloured stone.
Falling under the category of 'angular chippings,' our Sunset Red Chippings consist of both Marble and Basalt stone, both of which are very high in quality and hard-wearing. Measuring between 14mm and 20mm, these garden chippings are the perfect shape and size for use on a drive or pathway.
Sunset Red Chippings for Your Drive
Liven up the entrance to your house with these vibrantly-coloured chippings. Adding Sunset Red Chippings to your driveway will completely boost the appearance of it, and in some cases, add value to it! The same goes for pathways; people love adding chippings around their house to enhance the look of it.
Opting for decorative chippings on your driveway is a low cost, low maintenance choice that many people like for the minimal effort and ease of installing.
The size of these chippings paired with the fact they are angular chippings makes for the ideal stone beneath your car. The Sunset Red Chippings will 'lock together' to form a stable and durable base for either your car or your guests to walk on.
Sunset Red Chippings for Your Garden
The most popular use of Sunset Red Chippings is as a striking garden feature. If you've got a traditional brick red house, the warm colours of Sunset Red will go perfectly with your property.
A common garden feature is a border around either garden paving, decking or grass. Borders look great and are a nice way to separate your garden features from each other. The warm hues of Sunset Red Chippings look especially nice against a brown fence.
You could also use Sunset Red Chippings as a focal point in the garden; maybe you have a water feature or a statue that stands proud in the middle of the garden, why not add some decorative chippings around this to draw people's attention to it? Equally, it could also be used in an area that simply needs covering in a low maintenance way; perhaps an area around a shed or your front garden could really benefit from some colour.
The colours of Sunset Red are at their best when submerged in water; the peach and red tones really stand out. For this reason, you may want to add them to a water feature. We would not recommend adding them to a pond, however, as they are not fish-friendly.

How to Lay Sunset Red Chippings
You might be able to lay Sunset Red Chippings if you're confident in your DIY skills! It doesn't necessarily need a professional to complete, so can be a very low cost project. Read our basic guide for the best tips below.
The first step to do is to measure out the area that you'd like your Sunset Red Chippings to go. Once you've done this, you can use our quantity calculator to work out how many maxi bags or bulk bags you need.
As a rule of thumb, and especially if you're laying Sunset Red Chippings as a drive or a pathway, we would suggest laying a base layer 50mm deep. The best base layer would either be Scalpings or Type 1 Limestone. These crunch down to form a very sturdy yet cushioned base for your decorative chippings to then go on.
Ensure you dig out an area that allows at least 50mm for your base layer, and then a further 50mm for your decorative stone to go on. You might need a wacker plate to completely crush the base layer down. It's also good practice to use a spirit level to ensure a level area.
There is an optional step where you can place weed membrane on top of your base layer. This is popular as it will ensure you don't get any pesky weeds come through your lovely decorative area.
Finally, fill your base layer with Type 1 or Scalpings, and then your decorative stone can go on top. By adding the base layer, it will also ensure drainage is still good.
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.
