Designing A Slate Stone Border
Because slate provides a perfect contrast to a green lawn, colorful plants and well manicured shrubs, it's the ideal choice for creating a border in your landscape. Rugged, durable slate can be purchased in a range of colors, including green, gray, black, brown, purple and red. This fine-grained stone usually comes as either pavers or flagstones. Before you decide on the slate you want to use, take into account the location where you want it placed in the landscape as well as the effect you want to achieve, whether it's a rugged appearance or something carefully manicured and sophisticated.
