Resin Bonded gravel preparation worksOur client approached us  last year .  As he was completing the re-designing  of his front garden, extending his concrete driveway and creating a new doorstep  he wanted  to finish with a surface that would incorporate all the different surfaces and make it look uniform. His driveway had a standard manhole cover which was damaged.  Our client  intended to replace  this manhole cover with a recessed tray. The intention being to infill with concrete and then we could incorporate in the Resin Bonded Gravel resurfacing  which we were completing.


Drainage – not an issue as correct back fall already in existence and one of the benefits of our system is that it is using an existing surface and existing drainage systems are not affected.

Preparation  – filling of cracks to the concrete sections and the block paving where necessary with our waterbased specialist filler.Preparation work prior to Resin Bonded Gravel Nottingham

Finish  – Because of the size of the driveway the Resin Bonded Gravel finish in a natural colour  would serve best as this would visually increase the area of the driveway.  It is always down to choice with the colours for Resin Bonded Gravel but with our 12 years experience we can help guide our clients with the best option for them  their gardens and driveway.

Size of area – under 50sqm

Access – small cul de sac no traffic issues

Time span to complete Resin Bonded Gravel resurfacing  – 1 day.

During the time our client was completing his works and prior to our completing the resurfacing for the concrete  his neighbour expressed an  interest in our Resin Bonded Gravel  and contacted  us with a view to resurfacing his concrete driveway at the same time.

Resurfacing of 2 concrete driveways  with Resin Bonded Gravel now completed by Drive-Cote Ltd this week.
