Sudscape Porous Paving Driveway Surfacing
We install specialist Sudscape porous paving driveway surfacing for many domestic homes throughout the UK. Sudscape sees the combination of a 30mm depth rubber/stone mix sub base with a resin bound stone wearing course. It is a decorative and long lasting stone flooring option which is popular for residential areas as well as public spaces. Each client can choose a bespoke coloured design so the surfacing can be completely customised to whatever you would like.

Porous Sudscape Surfacing
Many urban areas now have Sustainable Urban Drainage Systems (SuDS) installed to ensure that rainwater can drain away efficiently without causing flooding. Porous paving is now being used as one of these systems to prevent water building up on driveways and paths. This can also prevent water runoff into lower lying areas which helps to reduce flooding as well. A SuDS compliant paving surface will be porous so that water is allowed to drain through it before passing into the sub strata or into the local drains. The air spaces in the surface filter water through the Sudscape porous paving driveway surfacing allowing some water to be absorbed and lost instead of flowing directly into the local drains and causing them to overflow and flood.
SuDS Driveway Paving Designs
There are many different resin bound gravel colour and specification options available including Brittany Bronze, Corn Flint and Autumn Gold. The colours and decorative stone mean that Sudscape porous surfacing provides a great natural look for driveways, patios, footpaths, swimming pool surrounds and courtyards. Another great positive of installing a Sudscape resin bound porous surface is that it requires no planning permission. This is due to it being a SuDS compliant surface and the base is made from recycled tyre shred meaning that it is environmentally friendly. Because of this, it’s a great option for homeowners who are looking to resurface or extend their driveway with minimum hassle.
Installing Sudscape Surfaces
The gravel flooring can be laid onto hard surfaces like tarmac and concrete, as well as existing stone flooring. This means it is suitable for a range of outdoor areas due to its flexibility. When installing Sudscape surfaces we’ll first install the base layer for this system which is a combination of rubber granules, stones and binder. This comes at a depth of 30mm and is both flexible and porous to comply with SuDS characteristics. On top of this base layer, we will install the resin bound gravel at a depth of 20mm which leaves an attractive and durable finish.
The finished paving will be a depth of 50mm and offers both permeability and long lasting qualities for use in domestic areas. The system is strong enough to withstand vehicle traffic as well as regular pedestrian use.
