Lakeland green slate chippings are direct from the quarry at Elterwater in the hills of Langdale Valley in the heart of the Lake District. This stone has a light green colour which brightens when wet, and has the occasional natural red tones and flecks of white spa. The shape is angular and relatively flat, which means it is perfect for garden slate chippings.
Lakeland green slate chippings are known to be one of the world's hardest, most durable slates as it is a metamorphic volcanic stone from the Ordovician period that was formed 450-500 million years ago. The geology of the rock means it is
also ideal for domestic driveways, paths or parking spaces.
Additional key features of 20mm Lakeland green slate chippings are:
They offer lower maintenance, which saves you time compared to other garden landscaping products and is ideal for weed prevention as the slate will help maintain the moisture in your soil during long hot summer spells.
The metamorphic geological composition of green slate chippings means they are unlikely to change the PH levels of ponds or soil and are therefore suitable for planting borders and alpine and rockery gardens. This slate is also a great choice for ponds and water features and is fish friendly (wash before use).
This slate has a lower carbon footprint than most other decorative aggregates sold as we deliver direct from the quarry.
PLEASE NOTE: bulk bags of 20mm Lakeland green slate chippings are 850kg from Stone & Surfaces Direct (many other suppliers offer 700-800kg under the term bulk bag). With Stone & Surfaces Direct, you get 7.5 - 15% more slate chippings.

Really pleased with my purchase of the Slate Chippings we received, customer service were excellent informing us of the progress of shipment. We were so pleased especially at the price of it including delivery that we told our friends across the road from us, who have now placed an order with them. Would highly recommend.
Brilliant item and service!
Will be back for more :)
Order delivered on day and time arranged. Driver rang when he was on his way and left the delivery in the place I requested. The slate chippings were of the quality I expected.
Excellent company to deal with, please don't change your ways AAA++++
Delivered as required, excellent company to deal with, always get back to you after an enquiry, reasonable prices, AAA+++
Product was as described and delivery was very quick and the driver was very pleasant
Stones are great, a lovely colour. My only complaint is they were left on the pavement as there was no crane to lift them over the gate.
Good quality chippings, business easy to deal with
Thank you Just what I ordered lovely and prompt delivery thank you very much
Thank you for your delivery of Lakeland green Chippings it arrived on time and I am very pleased with them thank you
What can I say from the beginning went smoothly. The deliver chap was amazing as he had trouble getting to me as I live in a small close and delivered on my drive and was polite and courteous. The quality of the slate was really good and I got 900kg instead of the 850kg bulk bag. Result! Correspondence good from start to finish and the price was the best online I could find. Buy with total confidence, brilliant company.
First purchase from Stones and Surfaces and very happy. Arrived on time and bulk bag filled right to the top. Recommended.
Easy to order. Delivered when I wanted it. Great product.
Very pleased with this product. I bought the first dumpy bag (20mm) Lakeland green slate and put in down in dry weather. Thought I’d made a mistake because of the white tinge to it……..until it rained, Wow! It washed off all the dust and bling! So I ordered another bag to allow the ground to settle under the area and allow me to level with a rake. Great value, quick delivery, great communication. What more can I say😀
Great value. Excellent communication from the seller. Would definitely buy again.
Very happy with my purchase, very helpful and friendly over the phone. The price was very competitive and as for the product, it has transformed my garden.
The lakeland green slate chippings arrived as expected. We ordered 4 x bulk bags which is more than enough for our landscaping project but any left over can be utilised around other parts of the garden. A very helpful delivery driver arrived and did his very best to get the chippings near to where we wanted them.
The quality of the slate is excellent and better than expected - it is easy to work with which really helps as we start our big landscaping project.
Whilst we have started to lay down some of the chippings we haven't taken any photos at this stage to show how the landscaping is taking shape but from what we done we are very happy with the product.
We are very impressed with the customer service received from the stone & surfaces direct company. The order and delivery was exceptionally fast and easy with regular updates on delivery dates and times.
We would highly recommend this company for any stone and surfaces needs and we will definitely be using them again for any further needs we have for stone and chippings.
Absolutely superb - thank you
Extremely happy will definitely reorder again

The attached information includes a quality certificate which will show the consistency of the aggregates size grading. Many aggregate suppliers do not provide this or carryout these controls which means the aggregate can have significant proportions of very small pieces to dust. In addition the material performance report provides the geological composition of the aggregate, and its physical and chemical properties.
Based at Barrow In Furness, Cumbria, Burlington Aggregates are experts in the extraction and processing of natural slate, limestone and sand aggregates from five Lake District quarries.
Our Westmorland Green slate aggregate is green in colour and in its environmental credentials, as it is processed from the quarry overburden and offcuts derived from the production of the roofing slate used on iconic historical buildings such as Buckingham Palace and Tower Bridge, in London.
The quarry is situated at the foot of the Langdale valley, Nr Coniston, Cumbria, where slate has been extracted since the middle of the nineteenth century. Elterwater is pale green in colour and is a metamorphic volcanic stone from the Ordovician period, and thus formed 450-500 million years ago. The geology of the rock means it is one of the most durable and hard-wearing natural stones available and as a result ideal for use in a wide range of applications such as roofs, paving, walls, and as an aggregate for driveways and various areas around a house or building.
