3 Decorative Chipping Landscaping Ideas

Landscaping Scene

Decorative chippings are a popular landscaping material. They are ideal for footpaths, driveways and flower beds and can help to create a contemporary look to any outdoor space.

If you are looking for inspiration on how to use decorative aggregates around your home, we’ve put together three ideas below to inspire you…

Pebble Flower Beds

Pebble flower beds look really effective, plus they are the ideal option for a low-maintenance garden. Natural stone pebbles come in a variety of different colours, shapes and sizes and contrast beautifully against the different hues and textures of flowers and trees. Another great benefit of using pebbles is that they stop a lot of sunlight reaching the soil below, which helps to prevent weed growth.

Garden Borders

Garden borders are on trend and they are easy to create using a number of decorative chippings. Whether you want to create striking edge to your decking or along your garden path, pebbles and chippings are the ideal solution for a stylish yet easy to make border.


Decorative chippings are popular in garden design; however they can also be used for driveways. Decorative stones are an attractive replacement for standard bricks or tarmac and can help to add a unique style to your property.

Gravel driveways are a popular choice in the UK due to the heavy rainfall. Unlike your standard concrete driveways, gravel allows water through into the ground which means no puddles or water damage.

Many landscape designers use decorative chippings and stone to create unique garden designs. Whether you are looking to use slate or pebbles, Lawsons offer a wide selection of quality aggregates to help bring your garden to life.
