Choosing a decorative gravel can be a tough choice, there are so many sizes and stone types available , let’s take a look at Marble Chippings and why they make such a fantastic choice. In this guide we wanted to give you a better insight into the wide range of uses of our Marble Chippings. We will also offer some advice on the advantages of Marble Chippings as well as some tips on how to calculate the quantity you may require.

Polar White 10mm

Polar White is a naturally quarried, beautiful pure white marble stone from Spain, also known as White Spar or White Dolomite. As this is naturally quarried, slight variations in size, shape and colour may occur. Polar White is a bright white colour and is angular in shape and due to its marble properties, will sparkle when wet and in the sunshine. At Gravel Master, we can supply this in large 850kg bulk bags or 50 x 20kg handy bags.

Polar White can be used for many purposes such as pathways, borders, water features and rockeries. The gravel will accentuate your plants creating a beautiful display in your garden and as it is a natural product it is safe to use around all plants, trees and shrubs. Many of our customers have used this as a decorative mulch during Winter months, not only does the gravel protect plants from the frost it will also add some life to your garden during dormant periods, or for adding structure to your garden whether it be in a border or a pathway.

As Polar White 10mm is so small, it is not suitable for driveways. We would never recommend using a gravel smaller than 20mm as these are more likely to get stuck in your tyre treads and would be difficult to drive and walk on.
