    Addagrip are delighted that their BBA accredited Terrabound Resin Bound porous surfacing has been installed on the pathways at The Magic Garden at Hampton Court Palace.  The palace’s imaginative new play garden, which has been designed to encourage discovery and exploration of the palace’s rich history, was officially opened by HRH The Duchess of Cambridge on Wednesday 4th May.

    Designed by award-winning landscape architect Robert Myers Associates, the play garden is a delight for families with its dragon, battlements, towers and a secret grotto.  Set within King Henry VIII’s former Tiltyard where Tudor tournaments were once played out, the Magic Garden is inspired by the fairy tale qualities of the Tudor palace which is adorned with heraldry and mythical beasts and reflects King Henry’s love of hunting. The garden has been designed to create a journey through different levels with its slopes and undulating pathways to give an element of discovery and surprise, providing opportunities for play that will engage and excite both children and adults

    Addagrip approved contractor, Total Protection (GB) Ltd were honoured to be appointed by Frosts Landscape Construction Ltd to install a total of 850m2 of Resin Bound pathways to areas of the garden which are rich in character. The design called for a smooth, seamless surface that would be porous and low maintenance whilst providing a bright, aesthetically pleasing paving. Resin Bound Terrabound was selected in a 3mm natural aggregate Autumn Toffee blend to provide walkways comfortable underfoot and suitable for wheelchair access.

    The surfacing was undertaken over 3 separate visits and included preparation of the concrete substrate by grinding and pressure washing clear all contaminants and creating the required 12mm depth ready for the Resin Bound Terrabound to be applied. The installation of movement joint edge detail with matching coloured inserts was also installed to correspond with the concrete joints beneath and provide a seamless looking finish to the walkways.

    Total Protection also undertook the painting for the fiery red ‘Dragons Head’ which provides a spectacular central feature to the new garden.

    The inspirational Magic Garden, which has been 6 years in the making, is now open to the public and marks an exciting new chapter in the palace’s 500 year history, which Addagrip are proud to have been a part of.
