Description

Our Scottish boulders are quarried from a site deep within the forests of Morayshire. These ancient forests grow on land that once formed the pre-historic coast of northern Scotland. These beautiful boulders have been fashioned over millions of years by the tireless motion of the Moray Firth and River Spey.

Each boulder is unique, displaying its character through pleasing variations in colour, shape and texture. In a spectrum from sparkling white to jade black, encompassing perfectly smooth spheres through to textured ovoid's.

Boulders supplied in an indicative size of 200-300mm but this can vary greatly.

Supplied individually or per 1 Tonne bulk bag

Do I need to put anything under bark chips?

It is really a personal choice whether you want to use a membrane under bark chips. This will reduce maintenance by suppressing the weeds further, but you will have future issues on the disposal of these membranes when they reach the end of their useful life. They can also look unsightly quickly after installation especially is you do not have enough bark chips to fully cover and protect this membrane.

How long do Bark chips last?

Bark chips can last a surprisingly long time as long a good material has been used. If they are well maintained and in sufficient quantity, you could expect them to last anything up to 5 years before starting to breakdown into the soil.

What size aggregate is best for my driveway?

We would always recommend using aggregates of either 14mm or 20mm in size for a domestic driveway, anything larger can be get flicked up to cars which can cause damage to bodywork, and anything small can be difficult to walk on and will get stuck in your shoes or car tyres.

What the difference between shingle and gravel?

They are basically the same thing, in the UK small rounded and angular stone quarried or dredged from the sea and called either shingle or gravel.

What depth should garden gravel be?

As a rule of thumb, you are going to need at least twice the depth of the chipping of gravel size. So, for 20mm chippings you are going to need at least 40mm depth to stop the base material showing through after time. Generally we would recommend going slightly deeper than this to ensure good coverage, but don’t go deeper than needed especially on small shingles / gravel such as 10mm which will be like walking on Brighton beach if used deeper than 40mm.

What do you put under stone chippings?

Using a weed suppressant membrane can greatly reduce the chances of movement under your stone chippings. It will also help reduce maintenance and keep you path or driveway looking better for longer. You must consider the environmental impact of using a plastic membrane in your garden and always consider careful if it's really needed.
