Hi all,


We're about to have a new patio done, and we're considering using black slate slabs.  However, we'd love to get a better idea of how it will look before deciding.  Would anyone in the area, with a black slate patio, be willing to let my wife and I come and view it?


Thanks in advance.

Do you mean real slate or another material that looks like slate? The real thing might be slippery when wet - and possibly very pricey.

My friend has one.  It looks lovely but it isn't black, it is (after all) slate grey.  It looks darker when wet and paler when dry.
