Resin Bound Aggregate
14th Century Barn Conversion
Set in a rural part of the Midlands, this property features a classical garden landscape, with retaining stone and brick walls. The main building is constructed around an old barn dating back from the 14th century.
The property owner wanted a replacement driveway and seating area using a small-sized resin bound aggregate. The previous driveway surface was composed of light coloured loose chippings. Over time such surfaces become prone to light furrowing, requiring semi-regular raking to maintain an even distribution of the stones.
The surface area for the project was considerable, requiring a multi-phase installation with the progressive completion of defined sections.
Advantages of An Aggregate Driveway
- The new surface resulted in an aesthetic upgrade to complement the existing property and adjoining landscape.
- A resin bound aggregate surface is strong and will prevent flying stones when driven over, unlike loose chippings and gravel.
- Water drains away quickly and even enhances the look of the surface.
- The driveway is much smoother, whilst retaining good traction characteristics, allowing for safe movement in harsh weather.
- The longevity of the surface will ensure that the owners can appreciate it like new even after 20 years.
