What Is Resin Bonded Gravel?

Resin bonded gravel is a non porous scatter coat system which provides a similar finish to traditional loose gravel. Each granule isn’t individually coated to it gives a loose stone finish. The stones are scattered onto the resin which bonds them to the surface and once the system is cured our installer brush off any loose stones.

This method of installing the wearing course is meant for a low maintenance finish that looks like a loose stone driveway, path or access road. Without the added cost of replacing the stones once compacted or dispersed.

At Soft Surfaces, we carry out numerous different decorative surfaces which can transform old driveways, pathways and tired areas. We often get asked about resin bonded gravel and how it compared to resin bound stone when installed.
