I'm looking to decorate my garden with slate chippings.
Am I able to put this in flower beds around my flowers so no soil is visible?
A bulk bag is cheaper to buy and I've worked out I will have about 1/3 left over and was just wondering if it could be used in beds.



Yes perfectly okay to put around your plants.

That's great, thank you so much.

If you put it straight on to the soil it will quickly disappear. You would need to put down a barrier first.
