One of the most popular landscaping and design options offered by Step Outside Landscapes is resin-bound paving. In order to fully appreciate the benefits that these substances have to offer, it is a good idea to look at the associated principles in greater detail.
What is Resin-Bound Paving and What are its Benefits?
This technology is rather new on the markets and it offers a host of interesting benefits. The materials consist of an aggregate (such as stone or gravel) that is impregnated with a high-strength resin compound. This resin is applied before the gravel or stone is laid down. Once cured, it offers several very interesting advantages. Not only is the resulting surface flexible, but it allows water to flow freely through its pores.
This permeability is ideal for sloped properties and other locations that might otherwise be prone to flooding. Also, the resin has been designed in such a way as to be resistant to the ultraviolet rays of the sun. This helps to protect the colour of the stone or paving material; ideal in terms of aesthetic longevity.
Resin bound is environmentally friendly, it is easy to maintain and has a very attractive finish. You can choose from a wide range of colours that will look amazing on any driveway and patio. Resin doesnt take long to install but will last for many years. Our resin bound experts can answer any questions you may have on this great surface.
