Slate and Natural Stone Paving Slabs and Stones
A major consideration for any project, private dwelling or commercial property, new build or simply an upgrade, is the aesthetic (kerbside) appeal it projects and this applies not just to the frontage but the whole surroundings. Ardosia slate have worked with many architects/landscape designers and provided a wide variety of natural stone products including slate paving slabs, limestone paving slabs, granite and Devonian slate paving that can be used to enhance the appearance and emphasise the character of a property.
Ardosia natural slate paving stones are extremely durable and when properly laid, can be used for vehicular traffic as well as pedestrian, their natural riven finish provides a unique rustic appearance. Patio slab packs are also available with paving stones cut to form circular patterns of either 1200mm, 1800mm or 2400mm diameter and our slate pavers can provide a stunning feature on any surface.
In addition to stock sizes, Ardosia Slate can cut the slate paving stone to specified sizes to form special patterns, or into strips to provide kerbing for paths, patios, or lawns (laying a slate edging flush to a lawn, whilst being visually attractive, allows the grass to be cut to the edge with a lawnmower alone). Used as a kerbing for a gravel drive or path, the slate slabs will keep the gravel where it belongs.
Ardosia Black slate cobbles are also an excellent choice for providing a path or driveway of character, they are available in 3 sizes 100x100mmx12/15mm thick, 300x150mm or 300x75mm both 18/22mm thick, that can be mixed to provide a suitable pattern for any area.
