BONDED GRAVEL OVERVIEW

Resin Bonded Gravel is a hard wearing decorative surface with a textured finish.

Bonded Gravel is not porous, meaning water doesn’t drain through and the rough texture gives the surface a natural effect.

Bonded gravel is applied by scattering stone gravel onto a resin base. The gravel aggregate is available in a range of colours which can be used to match existing exterior features.

BONDED GRAVEL INSTALLATION

Installers arrive on site wearing full PPE and sign in if required. Once equipment has been unloaded, installers measure area, take photos, check dips and report temperature.

The area is then dried with a gas lance and cleared of leaves and debris. Perimeter edges are masked with tape.

The entire surface is primed with binder, and gravel is broadcast across the area.
