When it comes to landscaping, the choice of materials can seem overwhelming. Yet, the impact of selecting the right aggregate for your project cannot be overstated. Among the many options, Cotswold Chippings from Mainland Aggregates stand out as a versatile and visually appealing choice. Mainland Aggregates, a leading UK supplier, offers these genuine Cotswold Chippings in a range of sizes. Also, these chippings are distinct from the white imitation limestone often branded as ‘Cotswold’ by others. But what exactly are they for, and should you consider them for your garden or landscaping project? Let’s dive in.

Cotswold Chippings

What Are Cotswold Chippings?

Cotswold Chippings are an angular limestone, renowned for their ability to brighten up any landscaping project. With a range of sizes, these chippings compact better than most gravels, ensuring a stable and attractive surface. Their natural yellowy buff tones are not only a feast for the eyes but also a practical choice for footpaths, borders, and general landscaping. Furthermore, they act as an excellent security feature for homes, as the noise made when the surface is trafficked can deter unwanted visitors.

According to wikipidea.org, the Cotswold stone originates from the Cotswolds in South West England. Cotswold stone is a type of Jurassic limestone that creates and rare type of grassland in the UK, and it is commonly quarried for its ‘golden’ or ‘honey’ tone.

What Are They For?

These chippings are tailor-made for enhancing paths and borders within garden spaces. Their angular shape and range of sizes allow for better compaction, making them a solid choice for areas expecting foot traffic. Not only do they provide an aesthetic lift to gardens with their natural buff tones, but they also contribute to the functionality and security of your outdoor space. However, it’s important to note that due to their softer limestone composition, they are not recommended for driveways or car parks. For such high-load areas, Mainland Aggregates suggests opting for a harder limestone, like the 20mm York Cream Chippings, which offer similar aesthetic appeal but with increased durability.
