What are the uses of Red Granite Chippings?

Red granite chippings have a wide range of uses and are a great feature for any type of landscaping project. They are great for brightening up your garden and can help bring to life any plants or borders on your land which are looking slightly dull.

Most people use red granite for driveways or footpaths around their home. If you would like to use granite chippings for this please ensure you use chippings which are slightly larger than the size you may have originally thought. The smallest size chippings could get caught in shoes and tyres. Cloburn Quarry offers 20mm Red Granite which will not move out of place as you drive on it or walk on it.

Granite chippings look good in all weather conditions throughout the whole year. Red granite also soaks up the water which prevents puddles forming and therefore reduces the risk of injury by slipping. Red granite chippings can also be used in water features such as ponds. When the chippings are wet they offer a gorgeous shiny finish which can add an extra something special to any garden or water feature.

Advantages of Red Stone & Granite Chippings

There are many advantages of using red stone chippings for your home. They are maintenance free once laid which also means they are also extremely cost effective and budget friendly. The chippings themselves last years whilst still maintaining very good condition which again will benefit your costs in the long run. These chippings are an attractive and colourful way to liven up an outdoor space or landscape project. They look good throughout the whole year round during wet and dry weather conditions. Red granite chippings also make a noise when you walk or drive on them which can alert you whilst in your home, that someone is approaching the house. This means it can be extremely useful for home security purposes as well as adding value to your property.

Red granite is also known as Lanark Red, Cloburn Quarry Company is based here and we are extremely proud to be Europes premier red granite quarry.

Red Gravel

Red gravel has a rich deep colour and essentially is loose aggregates of rock fragments. These loose fragments come in different sizes and vary in different shapes. Gravel may look like granite but with gravel comes a lack of quality that most certainly does not come with granite. Over time gravel can erode and lose its colour which can leave you with mismatching driveways or walkways. To prevent being caught out we would recommend buying some sample products to know what you’re getting before committing to buying a product that you may regret in the near future.
