Slate Chips (Medium)
Medium slate chips are a type of decorative landscaping stone made from natural crushed slate stone. They are slightly larger than mini slate chips, typically ranging in size from 1/2 inch to 1 inch in diameter, and are flat and angular in shape. Medium slate chips come in a variety of colors, including shades of gray, blue, green, and purple.
They offer a variety of benefits when used in a landscape project, including:
- Aesthetics: Medium slate chips have a beautiful blue-gray color that adds a unique and natural look to a landscape project. They can be used to create paths, borders, and as a decorative ground cover.
- Low Maintenance: Slate chips require little maintenance compared to other landscaping materials. They don’t need to be watered, mowed, or fertilized, and they won’t attract pests or insects.
- Durability: Slate chips are very durable and long-lasting. They won’t break down or decay like organic mulch, and they can withstand heavy foot traffic and extreme weather conditions.
- Moisture Retention: Slate chips can help retain moisture in the soil, which can be beneficial for plants and trees. They also help to prevent soil erosion and compaction.
- Weed Control: Medium slate chips can help to suppress weed growth by covering the soil and preventing sunlight from reaching weed seeds.
- Environmentally Friendly: Slate chips are a natural and eco-friendly material that does not contain any harmful chemicals or toxins.
