Pebble dashing has become a popular feature in the UK for many years now and is the application of small pebbled stones onto the exterior of your home or property. There are other names used to describe the process too, such as dry dashing, harling and roughcasting. In fact, despite popularity dwindling slightly, Grand Designs presenter Kevin McCloud believes “a revival is long overdue”.
Pebble dashing used to be a lavish technique, but as times have changed, it has become much more affordable and cost effective for many homeowners in Britain.
