It is a viable alternative to block paving, slabs, concrete, or tarmac, paving. The resulting consistency of bonded gravel makes it the ideal choice for non-slip and anti-skid surfaces. Resin Bond Driveways are compliant with Sustainable Drainage Systems (or SuDs), meaning that you don’y have to worry about your drive being waterlogged in heavy rainfall.
