    Question Shale patio

    We just finished filling in a circular space under our Spruce with shale for a patio. The shale has color but seems dull when dry. Can it be sprayed with a sealer of any kind to retain the color is has when wet?

    Acrylic seal coating will give your shale a gloss. There are several varieties at the home owners store or paint store.

    Mineral oil would also impart some sheen. It is often used to seal porous soap stone kitchen countertops.
