Resin patio design ideas

Resin patios are a welcome addition to the home and garden improvement scene. With a few creative resin patio design ideas, you can create the outdoor space you’ve always dreamed of. 

Your patio is a key part of your garden, a space where you can relax, spend time with friends and family and soak up the sun.

However, different types of patios come with specific challenges, such as how to keep them clean, tidy and weed-free. 

Resin-bound patios solve a lot of these issues. They are quick and easy to install, come in a wide range of colours and textures, are hard-wearing, durable and virtually weatherproof and maintenance-free. 

So, if you are looking for some garden inspiration, here are a few resin patio design ideas to get you started. 

Why choose a resin-bound patio?

Resin-bound patios offer a stylish alternative to concrete, gravel, block paving or decking. 

They come in a wide range of colours and textures you can’t get with other surfaces such as concrete or paving. 

They are fully porous, so allow any rain or surface water to drain through them, to help eliminate any flooding or standing water issues.

And unlike other surfaces, resin-bound patios do not shrink or swell in response to changing weather conditions, which prevents cracking and the appearance of weeds. 

They are also UV resistant, meaning they won’t fade or become discoloured due to exposure to the sun. 

Best of all, they require only minimal maintenance. They don’t need to be sealed or treated year after year, a regular sweep down or a couple of power-washes a year will keep them looking as good as new for many years to come. 

Benefits of a resin patio

When compared with other surfaces, resin-bound patios come out on top on several counts. 

It’s much easier to install a resin-bound patio than decking or paving. 

They are created by mixing your choice of aggregates with a clear UV-resistant resin, which can be overlayed over existing tarmac and block paving for quick and easy installation. 

Most patios can usually be installed in a day and will be fully cured and ready for use within 24 hours. 

Resin-bound patios won’t sink, swell or crack, meaning that once they have set, they will remain stable and sound for many years. 

They also have anti-slip properties, making them safer to walk on in wet or icy weather. 

Garden design ideas and inspiration

The smooth, durable, porous surface that resin-bound patios create have made them a popular choice for homeowners looking to bring their gardens and outdoor spaces to life.

Not only do they look good, but they are also extremely practical and functional and help reduce the amount of time you need to spend maintaining them. You’ll no longer be pulling weeds, scraping moss or cleaning dirt from the cracks between paving stones. They also don’t require regular staining or treatment, as decking does. 

If you are still not convinced, here are a few more reasons why you should consider investing in a resin-bound patio… 

Works well with other features

One of the best things about resin-bound surfacing is how versatile it is to install. It can be laid to fit around existing features such as raised beds, ponds or garden steps to complement what you already have.

Fits any space

A resin-bound patio can be easily laid around accommodate any unusual sizes or shapes of your space. If you have corners, curves, angles or lines, these can be accommodated more quickly and efficiently than other forms of surfacing, such as traditional or block paving. 


Caring for a wild, unruly garden can be a real chore, especially if you have a big lawn and areas of greenery with no easy access. Resin-bound patios are virtually maintenance-free, meaning you can create an outdoor space that looks great but will take minimal effort to care for. 

Create your own style

Resin-bound patios come in a wide range of colours and textures, meaning you can create the ideal patio to suit your style. You may be looking for something understated, which gives you a blank canvas on which to create your perfect outdoor space. Or you may be looking for a surface that contrasts with your home and garden to become a feature in its own right. The choice is yours.
