Harling involves coating the walls with a mixture of lime and sand as a form of cement, and stone aggregate. It is also sometimes known as pebble dashing.

There are various finishes that can be achieved. There is an initial wall coating, or rendering, which puts on the waterproof layer. This is then finished off with in a variety of ways.   Pebbledashing is  the most popular form of finish, and usually consists of very small stone chip being thrown at the wall, so that they adhere to the waterproof coating,  and give a pleasing look to the eye. The chips come in different colours, although the most popular are the very light, slightly shaded varieties.
