London Stone’s Slate Paving is chosen for its ability to split naturally into a fairly flat surface, which makes it suitable for a range of styles. Available in Blue Black or subtle Green, this versatile stone is also very evenly coloured, working well in a sleek, contemporary design or as a strong statement complementing a period property. Slate Paving looks lovely in warm positions where its rich colours pick up the sunshine. An added advantage is that it’s very dense, with very low porosity, and therefore naturally stain-resistant. This makes slate one of our lowest-maintenance natural paving choices.
Complement your Slate Paving with off-the-shelf Bullnose Step Treads or Bespoke Step Treads, Coping Stones, Pier Caps and Pool Surrounds. Our skilled stonemasons are happy to create the edge profile of your choice. Because of Slate’s low porosity, it should be laid using a bond bridge to ensure adequate adhesion between the Slate and the bedding layer. Like all our natural paving choices, London Stone’s Slate Paving is calibrated to a depth of 25mm. This added thickness creates a stronger product, suitable for driveways and high-traffic areas, and the calibration makes it easier to lay, so saving on labour costs.
