Black Basalt 20mm Decorative Stone
Black Basalt, also known as Black Granite, is a hardwearing angular volcanic stone. It is becoming increasingly popular due to its contemporary shade of charcoal grey that darkens to black once wet. This can be used to fantastic effect in the creation of bold, contrasting garden features and walkways.
Uses in the Garden
Black basalt gravel is a contemporary looking decorative aggregate commonly used for driveways.
As it is resistant to moss growth it will maintain its beautiful looks for years. It is perfect for drives and footpaths but as a fish friendly product it is also suitable for ornamental water features and fish ponds.
The stylish look of black basalt gravel also makes them a great choice for pathways, borders, water features and are sure to enhance the appearance of many other garden projects.
You can also use these stones in conjunction with white pebbles (or another lightly coloured stone) to create a fantastic contrasting look and really make them stand out.
Black Basalt Coverage
We recommend laying at 3-5cm deep. To cover 1m² with a 3-5cm depth, you’ll need approximately 80 – 100kg of Black Basalt. This is an approximate suggestion, coverage will depend on ground conditions, preferred finish etc.
Available in bags of 1kg, 5kg, 10kg and quantities of 20kg.
Orders of 10 bags or more are dispatched on a pallet.
