Cotswold chippings
Cotswold stone chippings or gravel, are a popular type of decorative stone used in landscaping and gardening. These chippings are derived from limestone quarried in the Cotswolds, a range of rolling hills in southwestern and west-central England.

They are typically creamy buff or honey-colored, which provides a warm and natural appearance. They come in various sizes, commonly ranging from 10mm to 20mm.
Versatile Color: Their neutral color complements a wide range of garden designs and architectural styles.

The chippings are angular and irregular, which helps them lock together when used in paths or driveways.

Paths and Driveways: Their angular shape makes them ideal for creating stable surfaces for walking or driving.
Mulching: They are often used as mulch to retain moisture in the soil and suppress weeds.
Garden Decoration: Cotswold chippings can be used to create decorative garden borders, rockeries, or as a base for potted plants.
Drainage: Their permeability makes them suitable for use in drainage systems or as a base layer under paving.

Benefits Aesthetic Appeal:

Edging: Use edging materials to keep the chippings contained within the desired area. Considerations
Cost: While not the cheapest option, their durability and aesthetic benefits can justify the cost.
