Recently we have been trained in laying resin bound gravel surfacing the look and benefits are fantastic!

Resin bound and bonded gravel surfaces are low maintenance, highly durable and the range of colours makes them suitable for any property and taste, it is ideal for domestic and commercial use and doesn't suffer from the drawbacks of traditional surfaces of block pavers, impressed concrete, tarmac and loose gravel.

No weeds, No puddles, No loose gravel, No gravel loss       
No subsidence, Ultra low maintenance, Available in a huge range of colours, Extremely hard wearing and durable, Highly slip resistant, Resistant to oil and chemicals.
Resin bound surfaces are porous.

After talking to Andy and Dawn, it was clear they were free spirits but with a love for co-ordination. So we worked on a layout that allowed for organic flowing lines that created organised spaces for different visual areas.

Over the next few days we stripped back the remaining foliage and set about building a raised bed on the left hand side. To cope with the slope away from the house, we added a step down to the next space.

By adding the big curve in the bed, we broke up the viewing angles from Andy and Dawn's kitchen ensuring some of the space would always remain hidden, inviting them in to the space and discover the progress of their planting.

On the right of the garden, we continued the lines of the raised bed with granite sets that fork on the return allowing for…
