Within the increasing popularity of resin bound and resin bonded surfacing systems as opposed to more traditional surfaces such as gravel, paving stones and asphalt, we regularly work with landscaping and maintenance companies to deliver a long lasting and aesthetically pleasing solution for footpaths, driveways, car parks and landscaping scenes.
We recently completed a project in Manchester on behalf of commercial landscape and maintenance contracting company DGS. We were tasked with providing resin bound surfacing for a footpath of 430sqm – in contrast with the grass and foliage that stand either side of the path, we used an attractive golden pea gravel.
Why resin bound?
Resin bound surfacing is a seamless surfacing system, where gravel is mixed with a flexible resin and then applied to the existing surface. When finished, resin bound surfaces have a smooth, great looking and anti-slip finish. A wide variety of finishes are available, from mixed coloured gravel, to incorporating logos or patterns into the resin surface.
Not only are resin bound footpaths aesthetically pleasing, but they generally last between eight and fifteen years, with very little need for maintenance. This type of surfacing is porous, so water can permeate naturally through the surface, removing the need to invest in expensive drainage systems.
