What is resin bound paving?
Our paved surfaces are made from specialist blends of washed and dried naturally sourced stone, encapsulated in a strong durable UV stable resin. This forms a mixture which is poured and then handtrowelled finish. The colours won’t fade, even in direct sunlight.
8 Practical Benefits of a resin bound surface
- Smooth finish: With no loose stones.
- Easy access: Ideal for driveways, paths or ramps used by wheelchairs, buggies or bicycles.
- Fuss-free maintenance: Tough enough to withstand pressure washing
- Resistant to weeds: Unlike block paving, resin bound surfacing doesn’t support the growth of weeds. Starved of water, roots can’t take hold. You simply brush weeds away.
- Hard-wearing: Resistant to petrol, diesel and oil.
- Permeable: Water can flow freely through the surface which complies with SUDS regulations
- Quick to install: On Day 1, we lay it. On Day 2, you can walk or drive on it.
- Flexible and seamless: Can be laid with no joins. It’s perfect for shaped areas and it can even be laid in decorative patterns.

What’s the difference between ‘bound’ and ‘bonded’ resin surfacing?
There are two types of resin surfacing systems. With very similar names, but which produce very different results. One permeable, the other nonpermeable.
‘Resin bonded’ is sometimes also used as a generic term for both systems. This can be misleading, since the systems produce different results.
