"Our aim, particularly with London town gardens, is to find ways of breaking up boundaries, and the Black Slate is great even just for cladding a(Read More) retaining wall. You get the best of both worlds – its dark appearance can really help make any planting scheme 'pop', as well as its texture which gives great visual appeal – especially when used with lighting – it’s also a very forgiving stone in terms of maintenance."

Black Slate Cladding creates a bold statement, particularly suitable for contemporary designs. The lightly riven surface and sawn edges of the stone cladding give contour to the very consistent rich charcoal colouring. Making a dramatic feature wall indoors or out, it will add vertical interest to designs, and blends well with our Brazilian Slate Paving. We recommend that all customers read our product & installation guides before buying.
