A resin driveway has many benefits, not to mention a huge range of compelling colours!

We’ve just treated ourselves to a resin driveway and we’re really pleased with the result. It looks clean and smooth, and only took one day to lay and set.

We opted for a subtle plain black Onyx colour to suit our business premises. There’s a fantastic variety of bolder and brighter colours available too; from Moon Shadow and Harvest Gold to Alpine and Arizona, (pictured below) we’re keen to open your eyes to this easy way to smarten up your driveway or pathways. 

Our Construction Director, Rich, who completed our driveway in less than one day, has lots of experience laying resin bound surfaces.  

Resin bound surfacing has quick laying and setting times – an average sized driveway can set within 6 to 10 hours. It can be laid over an existing concrete or tarmac surface so there’s no need to dig up the driveway, as there would be to block-pave. It’s a hassle-free solution that looks really tidy. A quick pressure wash now and then also keeps it looking immaculate.

The benefits of a resin surface

As well as the aesthetic appeal, and giving you back the use of your driveway with minimal disruption, there are many other benefits to having a resin driveway.

It’s low maintenance

Weeds rarely grow through, any that do can be easily brushed away.

No loose stones

The tightly bonded stones give a smooth finish, so you don’t collect and spread loose stones underfoot, but you still get that aesthetically appealing gravelly look.

It’s hard-wearing

The resin mix is laid over an existing concrete or tarmac surface, providing extra strength and durability.

It’s non-slip

The non-slip nature of the bonded stones makes it a safe option for footpaths, wheelchair ramps and walkways for swimming pools.

It won’t hold water

The high porosity promotes easy absorption and runoff. Nearby roots will benefit from easy access to the rain water that seeps through.

Over 40 colours to choose from

Choose from reds to blacks, whites, golds and silvers with varying stone sizes for smoother or rougher finishes.

Here’s a few of our favourites…

Moon Shadow


Pearl Blush
