hard landscaping Information for Architects and Specifiers

Welsh Slate’s technical team will work with you to bring your landscaping vision into reality through our large range of hard landscaping products.

Paving, monoliths, feature stones, walling and decorative slate chippings can all work together or individually to create stunning landscape designs. Welsh Slate’s Hard Landscaping product range is wonderfully versatile with products such as walling, with a range of finishes, suitable for edging and steps as well as retaining walls.

All applications will naturally weather in the landscape, but the structure is unaffected by moss and lichen growth, so its practical life is measured in centuries rather than years.

 

Our technical team will help guide you to find the best solutions to any challenges in your hard landscaping design scheme.
