    Addagrip's Terrabase Rustic Installed At Kew Royal Botanic Gardens

    Addagrip, the UK’s leading manufacturer of resin exterior surfaces, has been involved in the ‘Broad Walk’ project at the Royal Botanic Gardens, Kew, to create the longest double herbaceous borders in the UK.

    The 300m long borders either side of the Broad Walk, from the Orangery to the Palm House Pond, will be planted with swathes of vibrant summer flowering perennials, grasses and bulbs to form a spectacular new horticultural feature.

    Addagrip, together with approved contractor True Grip Ltd, installed over 3000sqm of innovative new porous paving system, Terrabase Rustic, on the instruction of main contractor Kier Facilities Services.  The product provided the rustic-looking finish that Kew required and could be installed over the existing surface with minimum environmental impact and disruption.

    As drainage was another key requirement for the project, Kew also selected Terrabase Rustic for its larger stone size of 6-10mm to provide maximum porosity.

    The new Terrabase Rustic surface is hard-wearing and low maintenance, providing a seamless, natural rustic pathway with no loose stone, which looks very much at home in the grounds of London’s historic Royal Botanic Gardens.

    The Broad Walk path has recently re-opened, allowing the public to begin enjoying the experience. New plants will begin to arrive in autumn 2015 and planting will continue until early summer 2016 to complete the project.
