Slate Pavers
Asked by... Angela Walsh from London

The Question

Is natural black brazilian slate suitable for a patio garden or is it better to use flagstones

The Answer

Brazilian slate pavers are perfect for outdoor use.

They have a natural anti slip property, are frost resistant and are also really hardwearing.

The thickness of the slate pavers also means they can be laid onto an MOT Type 1 sub-base on a sand & cement bed. Whereas the thinner 10mm tiles, although suitable for exterior use, would need to be installed on a solid concrete bed.
