There are other means however that can be used to add a touch of glamour to the garden which don’t necessarily need to come from vegetation. Slate chippings are one example.
Most gardeners will, at some point in their lives, have used them; decorative landscape designers will have used them too but in quantities so huge you’d need several dumper trucks to move them and anyone who has ever visited a garden centre will have seen them stacked in sacks in the outdoor section – that’s right, we’re talking about slate chippings.
