Resin

Morning all, 

I have laid a path in a small school garden with varied small stones, slate, pebbles. Is there a resin I can pour on to bind it all together as I am concerned little feet and hands are going to distribute the contents of the path far and wide?

thanks

  •  Sorry that sounds like a terrible idea . I think I'm right in saying resin bonded gravel is applied on to a solid smooth base with 10mm aggregate mixed in , poured and trowelled smooth and you need a mask due to the fumes. You could experiment I suppose...it's quite pricey though. I'd have thought you'd be better of setting your pebbles etc firmly in reinforced and shuttered concrete

      Resin Bound Gravel is a trowel-applied system that has selected aggregates mixed with the resin and laid to a smooth, level surface with no loose stone. ... Resin Bonded Gravel is where the chosen aggregate is scattered and bonded onto a resin base, providing a textured appearance of loose stones

    I've not come across this but as an idea it maybe has legs?? Some interesting stuff done with resin on you tube and you can add colours too.

    Also look up pebble path mosaics. Some amazing stuff but laid on mortar.

  • thanks very much for these comments

    Hi Joe, 

    We have heard of a product you could possibly use. We are approved installers for SureSet and we install the resin bound aggregate, however I saw them advertise something called PourOn. We haven't used it but I will copy the link here. Also, SureSet are very helpful so they would gladly help you on the phone and discuss the product. Ask to speak to Alasdair and say Susan from Ayegardening recommended you speak to him.

    PourOn
    Pour onto your existing loose aggregate, its a cheaper, easier way to create a tidy, permeable surface yourself.
