Add decorative aggregates to your garden for a stylish finish

By Cathryn Robson on 04/01/14 in: Decorative Aggregates

It takes a long time to get a garden exactly how you want it to look.

There’s the lawn to cultivate and nurture, the flowerbeds to plant up and the shrubs that will need to mature. The garden is such an important space for you and your family – it’s where all the activity happens during the summer! Gardening is such a therapeutic way to spend your time, and you’ll find that the more you are out there pottering, the more you will want to do.

It’s really important that you finish your garden off properly – as it’s the little details that make the huge differences to the overall look. If you haven’t already, you should consider using decorative aggregates in order to give your garden that final flourish – it really does add that finishing touch that you are looking for.

Decorative aggregates can be used in many ways. Perhaps the most common usage is for the driveway – in our opinion there is nothing more appealing than granite chippings or decorative gravel on the approach to a house. It says to visitors that you care about your home’s appearance, and it also says that you are willing to pay for quality finishing touches. If your driveway is looking a little lacklustre then perhaps it’s time you considered upgrading it? Making more of your outside space really can add so much visual appeal to the entire property.

Driveways are not the only use for decorative aggregates. They are also extremely useful when it comes to filling flowerbeds and garden features. Flowerbeds can be beautifully enhanced when you add bark chippings to them – and you’ll have the added bonus of being able to minimise weeds as a result. This means less time weeding, and more time admiring your plants! Make sure you also add a flowerbed border to keep the chippings from spilling out into your garden. A flowerbed with added features turns it from something quite ordinary to something really quite special. You could also consider adding solar lights and garden ornaments for a really stunning look.
