Black Stones? – Black Basalt

By Cathryn Robson on 06/11/17 in: Enhance Your Home

Black Basalt

If you’re looking for a modern or contemporary stone for your garden, then Black Basalt is ideal. When wet this stone is black; when dry it becomes a charcoal grey colour making it perfect for off-setting gardens with a lot of natural colour or for use in sleek urban gardens.

Black Basalt has the added benefit of being highly resistant to algae and moss making it ideal for footpaths, driveways and around water features (it is fish friendly).

As a very durable volcanic rock, Black Basalt is a popular choice as driveway gravel. 20mm Black Basalt is perfect for driveways and pathways because the pieces bind together and make it less likely for the chippings to scatter when driven upon.

10mm Black Basalt is also a popular choice, it fits well within our Permegrid PG40 ground protection system so can also be used for driveways and garden paths alike.

Stones4Homes supply Black Basalt chippings in bulk loose loads (for larger areas) bulk bags and handy bags, use our online calculator to work out how much you will need for your driveway, or give our office a call and let them work it out for you! Call today 01757 289651.
