    Addagrip features on ‘Love Your Garden’ with Alan Titchmarsh

    Uckfield-based Addagrip, the leading resin bound and bonded surfacing manufacturer, was featured last night on Alan Titchmarsh’s prime time ITV television show ‘Love Your Garden’. Alan and his team created a garden which included a resin bound path which was supplied by Addagrip and installed by one of the company’s approved contractors, Orchid Flooring.

    In this episode of ‘Love Your Garden’, Alan and his team visited Cambridge to transform the garden of a young mother whose son requires round the clock care – putting some holiday sun into her uninspiring garden and bringing the beach to Cambridgeshire.

    Until five years ago, mum Suzi and her two children Katiya and Isaac - were a happy active bunch who took frequent trips to Spain to visit family. But when 12 year old Isaac was diagnosed with the debilitating condition ALD, their lives changed forever. Isaac is now largely confined to his bed or his wheelchair and Suzi has given up work to become his full time carer.

    Alan and his team of experts replaced the rotten deck and, with the help of Orchid Flooring, put in a sweeping Addagrip resin bound path – in Addabound 3mm Natural Beach - that now allows Isaac access to all areas of the new garden. The path also includes a sun logo in Addacolor 3mm Yellow.

    “We were delighted to be asked to be involved with this project and really touched by how much the revitalised garden obviously means to Suzi and her children,” says Roger Critchley, Managing Director of Addagrip. “The programme shows how flexible and robust our products are and we really enjoyed seeing Alan and the team putting them to good use. We hope that Suzi and her family continue to enjoy the garden – particularly during this spell of warm weather.”

    Two huge gravel beds were filled with Mediterranean themed plants, while the existing pergola was revitalised. The finished touches included a state-of-the-art sound system, sail shade and outdoor pizza oven.

    Addabound – a recent addition to the Addagrip resin bound surfacing range - provides a smooth, hard wearing and low maintenance porous/semi porous surface. It includes Addagrip’s latest UV stable resin technology, offering increased renewable resin content, strength and improved surface flexibility. Addabound also uses a range of natural and recycled aggregates with a minimum of 25% recycled content of aggregate and filler.

    The Addacolor Resin Bound Surfacing System – which was used in the garden to pick out a burst of sunshine - is ideally suited to those projects that require a splash of colour both inside and out, such as footpaths and school playgrounds.
