Using Decorative Aggregates

Reds, blues, purples and greens, or even classic Cotswold stone, decorative aggregates can add a splash of colour and life to any outdoor area of your home. So why not consider how you can bring these colours to life!

Garden Colour

In the garden, there are a number of ways that you can use decorative aggregates to spruce up the space!
Starting with an alternative to a patio, why not create your seating area, or even just the ground around a bench using coloured gravel. Making the space stand out from the rest of your garden!
These coloured aggregates make a great addition to your borders too. You might have an array of coloured flowers, bushes and shrubs in your border, and coloured gravel can help to make those colours pop! Another alternative available in our collection is decorative bark. This can help to reduce the growth of weeds in your soil and add to the appearance of your borders.

The Gravel Alternative

If you are not a big gardening fan, or find yourself having less and less time to spend keeping certain parts of your garden looking as attractive as you wish they would, you can always change things out for some coloured gravel. We have seen an increase of people digging up their front lawns or their front borders and replacing them with decorative aggregates, reducing the amount of care they need and increasing the curb appeal.

The Driveway

While many driveways are tarmac or paved, not all of us find this as attractive as a gravel driveway. So why not change the front of your home and add a splash of colour, or even opt for the classic Cotswold stone to keep it classy.
Not only do gravel driveways look great, but they are also a cheaper alternative that you can even do yourself! Creating a gravel driveway yourself is made easy with our digger hire and bulk decorative aggregates. Simply dig out your excess ground, lay a weed proof lining, and add your gravel.

Leftover Gravel

The wonderful thing about leftover decorative aggregates is that they can be used in a number of ways that means they will never go to waste. Outside the home, they can be used and pot toppers, to surround single plants to make them stand out and even in hanging baskets. Inside the home, you can also use them as plan toppers for your indoor plants and even if you give them a good clean, in your fish tank.
