winter time resin bonded resurfacing

Wow what a busy time this year.  Little time for updates with regards to our winter time resin bonded resurfacing, so I though it would be a good opportunity to relook at our  previous years posts.

In February last year  for our winter time resin bonded resurfacing works we posted about

permeable paving options slow uptake

Gardens driveways drainage floods are we to blame

resin gravel driveway base – suitability being key

and to be fair I don’t think we would talk about much different this year.  A little more snow has been evident so far and as we all know about climate change, excess water, whether through rain or snow, can create a problem.

We talked about

Gardens driveways drainage floods

Gardens driveways drainage floods – all being discussed in great detail over the past few weeks.  Who is to blame?  Can anyone be blamed for gardens driveways drainage floods?

Blame cannot be directed  to any one particular cause  or can it ?  Is it the large housing developments  the UK is under pressure to produce?  Is it paving over driveways?  Or is it global warming?  Or is it all these things?

I have seen a couple of reports recently  and one or two discussions over the last day or two  and even Alan  Titchmarsh has waded into the debate (excuse the pun).

In the report which Alan Titchmarsh commented on  it goes on to say

 

“Lord Krebs claimed driveways and patios let rain-water run straight into rivers and led to flooding”

He said: “We need TV gardeners to tell people not to put down patios and decking.”

It is even said that experts believe floodwaters won’t now ebb until the summer!  Will we see a drought then?”

Mansfield Ashfield and Bolsover and the East Midlands as a whole as been very lucky with regards to floods, but we need to continue to consider the environment.

Remember if you have a surface that is solid and structurally sound don’t have it removed.  Resurface it.  Imprinted concrete, tarmac or even paving slabs in some cases, we can recycle. Anti slip and virtually maintenance free!
