Will weeds grow through my new resin bound surface?


The short answer is ''no'' - resin-bound stone does not allow weeds to grow up through the sub-base and thus up to the surface. Resin bound is created by mixing stone aggregates with a specialist resin before being hand trowled on top of a suitable sub base such as tarmac or resin. Resin bound surfaces are SUD's compliant, meaning the water is drained immediately, no more puddling and pooling or a build-up of algae, and because the resin bound surface is crack-free, there is no room for weed growth!
