With so many different types of decorative chippings available, you will want to make sure that you find the right option suitable for you; whether it be bark chippings, slate chippings, granite chippings, pebble chippings or a whole host of other possibilities!  As well as decorative chippings looking great, they also have a range of other benefits, such as …

1. They are a time saver!

Having a garden with decorative chippings tends to require much less maintenance than other gardens. No longer will you have to spend your weekends digging flower beds or mowing the lawn. This will free up time to enjoy your garden rather than working it! For gardeners with backache, bark chippings really are a superb investment as mulching is one of the best ways to stop weeds. Bark chippings can also add decorative uniformity to large areas of beds, borders and other soil filled areas. 


2. They are a money saver!

Although it might seem a large amount of money to spend on one project, decorative chippings are actually a lot cheaper than many other landscaping projects. In addition, you will save yourself money in the long run as you won't have to pay for any upkeep of your garden or spend money on plant foods, fertilizers or similar!

3. They are a flexible feature! 

Decorative chippings can be used in a lot of different ways! Why not use bark chippings to create a little adventure playground for your children or grandchildren in the back garden, or to make a path or driveway with some pebblesgranite or create a rockery using slate chippings.  They can also be used to line a pond or to fill flower pots. The options are plentiful and there is also a wide variety of colours, textures and shapes available, allowing for broad and creative innovation.

4. They are easy to do yourself! 

If you are someone who likes to be involved in DIY projects, then decorative chippings are possibly the thing for you!  The nature of these products means that you can do most or all of the work of putting them down yourself.
