As seen on a recent episode of ITV 1’s ‘Love Your Garden’ with Alan Titchmarsh, our beautiful Lakeland walling is the perfect solution for a wide range of garden improvement projects. Bring a touch of the Lake District to your property with our stunning product.
Unrivalled by other slate walling on the market and renowned for its strength, durability and colour fastness; our beautiful slate walling from the southern Lake District displays a combination of green-blue slate pieces, with varieties of mid to dark brown that together provide the ultimate walling facade.
The slate is metamorphic in origin and over 450 million years old. Its appearance will provide the traditional exterior facade often seen in gardens and walling across the Lake District and Cumbria.
Our high-quality slate walling product is hand-picked from its original source and varies in length, depth, and width. It is selected to be relatively flat and to have a flat surface, to make it easier for novice gardeners to design walls, borders, planters, and rockeries and features up and down the UK.
What’s more, the geological composition of the slate means that it is unlikely to change the pH levels of ponds and soil and is fish-friendly, which makes it perfect for water features in your garden.
Lakeland slate walling has many amazing benefits for your garden too. It has a low water absorption rate and weathers well in the ever-changing conditions the UK is susceptible to. Therefore, the slate is protected from damage caused by frost and rain.
It is also extremely hard wearing and durable due to its resilient natural properties. Each piece of natural slate is truly unique, which means every garden landscaping project has its own individual look because of the authentic natural beauty of the slate.
We are proud to say that our Lakeland slate walling has a lower carbon footprint than most other walling products on the market because it is delivered directly to you from the quarry, with no middlemen involved.
All the stone supplied is hand-selected to achieve the traditional random appearance, with the range of piece lengths typically 200-450mm in length and a height of 50-125mm. Piece depths vary depending on the actual size and usually range between 125-200mm in depth.
