Benefits of a resin pathway

Resin pathways have many benefits, which is why they are fast becoming a popular choice for businesses and homeowners alike. 

While there are many hard surface paving solutions available, none offer the same durability, flexibility, weather resistance and aesthetics as a resin pathway.  

A resin-bound pathway can also be far quicker and easier to install and can often work out more cost-effective than other systems, such as concrete or traditional block paving. 

Resin surfacing has been used for many years to create stunning-looking driveways and patio areas

However, in recent years, more and more people have been turning to resin-bound surfacing for pathways, too. 

They look great in a domestic garden, either as a feature in their own right or to complement your overall design.

Resin-bound pathways are also great for public spaces like country estates or gardens, and commercial premises like business parks and outdoor shopping malls.  

So, if you are considering investing in a new pathway, here are some of the ways you can benefit from choosing resin. 

What are the benefits of a resin pathway? 

The main benefits of a resin-bound pathway are it is colour stable, UV resistant and weatherproof – provided you care for it properly, it can look like new for many years. 

A resin-bound pathway is also permeable and SUDS-compliant, which is a must for homeowners and businesses to stay compliant with flooding and drainage regulations. 

Resin-bound surfacing is slip, weed and frost resistant, has a long lifespan and is easy to clean and maintain. It is also totally seamless, which unlocks unlimited design and creativity options. 

Best of all, it creates a smooth, flat and hard-wearing surface which can handle heavy footfall all year round. 

Some of the other benefits include: 

Wide range of colours, textures and finishes 

You can create any shape and design imaginable with resin-bound surfacing. With the choice of a wide range of colours and finishes, you can create beautiful designs which aren’t possible with other types of paving. 

Excellent drainage and flood resistance

Resin-bound pathways are porous and permeable, allowing water to drain through rather than puddling or flooding. It means resin pathways are SUDS compliant and will help you to meet all other relevant flooding and drainage regulations. 

Hardwearing and long-lasting 

Resin-bound pathways are extremely strong and durable and, with proper care, will remain so for years. They are highly resistant to weather, weeds and other organic materials and can cope with sustained heavy use without breaking down. 

Easy to maintain

Resin-bound surfaces are smooth, flat and seamless, which makes them easy to clean and maintain – regular jet washing will keep them looking as good as new. They are also resistant to scuffing, petrol and oil spills and will retain a consistent colour over several years because they are UV resistant too.
