Slate tiles & Slate stone

Laying slate tiles outdoors is very popular and our range of colours, origins and formats is only growing. You will find everything from black slate, gray slate and to warmer shades and sand-colored tones in our bestseller Slate Savanna. Thanks to its appearance and its hardness, slate is a popular natural stone in both the garden and for the interior surfaces of the home. Slate tiles for outdoor use are available in irregular shapes, such as stepping stones and stepping stones, as well as in sawn slate tiles and screeds that give different looks and impressions to your garden floor. Slate is a beautiful rock with vibrant shades and iridescent surfaces that bring living garden surfaces. When the stone is split during production, the surfaces become very lively. Many of the slate stones come with a so-called claw surface, which gives a lively and somewhat uneven surface where you get a grip-friendly surface structure but which at the same time gives a nice structure. Slate can be installed in both macadam/chips and in natural stone fix on a poured concrete slab. The different methods obviously give different end results, but also require completely different sub-work and are of great importance for different types of load on the surfaces.

Irregular format

When laying irregular slate, patterns and a completely unique slate course and stone surface can be created. The irregular slate gives room for great creativity when laying the stones. The stone comes in widely varying sizes and is processed and adapted to the installation well on site. This is an incredibly fun process where hot unique patterns and adaptations will need to be made along the way to a finished slate surface. In the event of an irregular slate laying and slate course, you should expect a spillage rate of approx. 10-15% spillage. Completely depending on the type of paving you want to achieve. Sometimes you look for irregular slate but with sawn edges and thus a narrower joint and sometimes cracked edges and wider joint width. With just sawn edges, it becomes more sensitive which pieces are used and then also more spillage. Regardless of whether you intend to create a patio, garden path, cover a garden wall or build a greenhouse, you've made the right choice in an irregular format on your slate tiles!

Here you will find a whole range of different products to be able to combine through the garden. Irregular format with different thicknesses intended for different types of slate laying and mounting. Poured floors and slate tiles in rectangular formats as well as ground stone with rustic edges and several different sizes of stepping stones.

Offerdal slate - Craft and tradition

One of our Swedish prides when it comes to slate is our Offerdals slate. The stone that is quarried and processed in Jämtland comes in a pencil-colored stone shade that adds a beautiful touch to the garden. Offerdal slate has been laid in our gardens for many, many years and the production has great craftsmanship and tradition. Offerdals slate is available in both sawn slate slabs, slate slabs and in irregular shapes. Our neighboring country Norway also comes with a range of different types of slate which are well-liked and popular alternatives for the garden. Oppdal and Ottaskiffer are two of these and are found in a range of different models and sizes in the range.

Stone steps - Dear child has many names

Steppingstones, treadstones and stepstones are all names for ready-made stepping stones. Sometimes you just want to create a simple slate walkway and homely passage in the garden. Our stepping stones provide a quick solution to this. Stepping stones or stepping stones, as they are also often called, are easily placed in gravel paths and lawns, and you get a garden path with attitude with little effort and for cheap. A rule of thumb is to use about 3-4 steps in a 2 meter garden path. When installing, we recommend that you lay out the steps on the surface where you intend to install them and let the family feel the distance between the stones. Everyone has different wishes and you often have to adapt the course and the distances according to those who will mainly use the stones. When installing in a gravel path, it may be worth putting the stepping stones in a layer of concrete at the bottom so that they do not move in the moving gravel. For a lawn installation, place the stones and hack out their shape with a spade followed by sprinkling a thin bed of stone chips or stone flour before driving them down with a rubber mallet. 

Curb around your slate surface

Frame your slate with granite curbs for as stable a surface as possible. Curbstones are also available in concrete, but our recommendation for a natural stone and slate slab is to also frame it with a natural material for as coherent a surface as possible.

After the project is finished, you can also put a final touch with decorative stone and you are guaranteed a garden surface that will last and stand out from the crowd.
