Coloured Bound Gravel Systems are ideal for creating logos and designs within playgrounds, swimming pool surrounds, courtyards and other pedestrian schemes.
A range of 14 standard colours are available, however, we can match RAL colours to create a bespoke logo or corporate colour scheme.
BOUND 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. Edges are primed twice.
Materials are mixed with a resin-binder and transported by wheelbarrow to the area for laying. The mixture of gravel and resin is levelled to the required thickness, and a screed, roller or hand trowel is used to smooth and lightly compact the surface to gain an even, level finish.
The surface is ready to use the following day.

Bound Gravel is a low maintenance product. However, it should undergo routine and operational inspection and maintenance to keep it in optimum condition.
|FREQUENTLY ASKED QUESTIONS
Q. Resin Bound and Resin Bonded Gravel – What is the difference?
A. Bound: Aggregate is mixed with resin and then hand-trowelled into place to produce a surface that is smooth and porous. Resin Bound surfaces allow drainage of surface water and better environmental compliance.
Bonded: A layer of resin is screeded onto a surface and then a fine aggregate is scattered over the top and rolled in. This produces a rough surface that is not porous.
Q. Will the surface always be porous?
Q. What can resin bound surfacing be laid on?
Q. Is resin bound surfacing strong enough to take vehicles?
Q. What size aggregate is used for the resin bound surfacing?
For tree pits, we would recommend a 5-8mm or 10mm sized aggregate to achieve optimum strength and porosity.
Q. What will happen to resin bound surfacing during times of extreme heat or freezing?
