As an alternative to the usual driveway materials, Studio Plantscapes offers an exciting versatile alternative:
We are qualified Resin Bound Technicians and can offer a huge range of exciting options for your home or place of work.
Resin Bound is anti-slip so from a safety aspect it is a perfect alternative.
Why choose resin over block paving, concrete, flags or tarmac? We use 100% natural stone, mined from the finest quarries across the UK and Europe to ensure longevity and consistency of supply. Our Resin Bound suppliers have spent an extensive period of time experimenting and testing different aggregate mixes and conducting market research in order to bring to you the best looking and most sought after resin bound mixes on the market. Our resins utilise the latest polymer technology, which produces stronger bonds and therefore gives a resilient and robust surface that has longevity and durability, unlike any other in the industry. Our polyurethane based system has been put through vigorous testing alongside the different resin bound suppliers on the market, in order to confirm it’s superiority. This includes strength assessments on all mixtures and anti-slip testing, so that the full spectrum of the performance of the resin is covered for both domestic and commercial installations. The result is a flexible yet strong resin that is easy to work with, offering a highly cosmetic seamless antislip finish. We are committed to working with our customers and suppliers to constantly improve our products and bring innovative solutions to their needs. As well as having a highly cosmetic finish with outstanding kerb appeal, resin is over 10 times more eco-friendly in comparison to concrete. Most importantly it allows water to drain naturally through the finished surface, reducing puddles and slippage. This conforms to the SuDS (Sustainable Urban Drainage Systems) legislation and also means planning permission is not required for resin bound driveways. Resin bound is a surface with very high anti-slip properties and it is weed resistant, meaning no more maintenance.
Our suppliers use a permeable paving which is a Sustainable Urban Drainage System (SuDS) that deals with surface water run-off in an environmentally friendly way, mimicking natural drainage by allowing water to drain through the surface. Once the flexible two-part polyurethane resin has been mixed and combined with the aggregates, each particle of the aggregate will have been coated in high quality resin.
Playground Wet Pour
Wet Pour is a continuous recycled rubber surface that gives a high quality, hard wearing, slip resistant surface requiring little to no maintenance. One of the main attractions of wet pour is that it is available in a wide range of colours and therefore design possibilities are unlimited.
Tree pits are typically laid with aggregates above 5mm. This is so that it creates an open texture and a highly porous surface, allowing for quicker drainage for water to feed to the roots and enabling access for air penetration.
