Enhance Your Outdoor Space with a Resin Bound Path

When it comes to enhancing the aesthetic appeal and functionality of your outdoor space, few solutions match the elegance and durability of a resin bound path. At Viv Construct Group, we specialize in groundworks, including the installation of top-quality resin bound paths. This comprehensive guide will explore the benefits of resin bound paths, the installation process, and why you should choose Viv Construct Group for your next project. Our goal is to help you make an informed decision that will add value and beauty to your property.

What is a Resin Bound Path?

A resin bound path is created by mixing natural aggregates with a clear resin binder. This mixture is then applied to a prepared surface, creating a smooth, permeable, and visually appealing finish. The result is a durable path that can withstand heavy foot traffic while maintaining its beauty and functionality.

Benefits of a Resin Bound Path

Aesthetic Appeal

One of the main reasons homeowners and businesses choose resin bound paths is their aesthetic appeal. These paths offer a wide range of color options and design flexibility, allowing you to create a path that complements your property’s overall look. The smooth finish and natural stone appearance enhance the visual appeal of any outdoor space.


Resin bound paths are highly durable and can withstand heavy foot traffic, making them an excellent choice for both residential and commercial properties. The resin and aggregate mixture is resistant to cracking, fading, and wear, ensuring a long-lasting pathway.


One of the standout features of resin bound paths is their permeability. This means that water can easily drain through the surface, reducing the risk of puddles and flooding. Permeable surfaces are also environmentally friendly, promoting natural groundwater recharge.

Low Maintenance

Resin bound paths require minimal maintenance compared to traditional paving options. They are resistant to weed growth and can be easily cleaned with a simple jet wash, keeping your path looking pristine with little effort.


The textured surface of resin bound paths provides excellent slip resistance, making them a safe option for areas prone to wet conditions. This makes them ideal for garden paths, driveways, and public walkways.

The Installation Process of a Resin Bound Path

Site Preparation

Proper site preparation is crucial for the successful installation of resin bound paths. This involves clearing the area of any debris, weeds, and existing surfaces. The ground is then leveled and compacted to create a stable base.

Edging Installation

Edging is installed around the perimeter of the path to provide a defined border and prevent the resin mixture from spreading beyond the desired area. This can be done using various materials, including metal, wood, or stone.

Base Layer Application

A suitable base layer, typically made of compacted hardcore or asphalt, is applied to provide a solid foundation for the resin bound surface. This base layer is crucial for ensuring the durability and stability of the path.

Mixing Resin and Aggregate

The resin and aggregate are mixed thoroughly to ensure an even distribution of the resin throughout the aggregate. This mixture is prepared on-site to ensure freshness and optimal consistency.

Applying the Resin Bound Mixture

The resin bound mixture is then carefully applied to the prepared base layer using a trowel. It is spread evenly to the desired thickness and smoothed to create a uniform surface. The mixture is then left to cure, which typically takes around 24 hours.

Final Touches

Once the resin bound path has cured, any final touches, such as cleaning up the edges and removing excess materials, are completed. The path is then ready for use, providing a stunning and functional addition to your outdoor space.

We also completed a project for a commercial property that required a durable and attractive walkway for their customers.

The client was thrilled with the result and appreciated the minimal maintenance required to keep the walkway looking pristine.

Tips for Maintaining Your Resin Bound Path

Regular Cleaning

To keep your resin bound path looking its best, it’s important to clean it regularly. A simple jet wash can remove dirt, debris, and any organic matter that may accumulate on the surface.

Addressing Stains

If you notice any stains on your resin bound path, it’s important to address them promptly. Use a mild detergent and a soft brush to gently scrub the stained area. Avoid using harsh chemicals, as they can damage the resin.

Inspecting for Damage

Regularly inspect your resin bound path for any signs of damage, such as cracks or loose stones. If you notice any issues, contact a professional for repairs to prevent further damage and ensure the longevity of your path.

A resin bound path is an excellent choice for enhancing the beauty, functionality, and safety of your outdoor space.
