The brief was to provide a low maintenance surface that would complement the existing walkway and assist in the elimination of weed growth. Following the application of an anti-fungicide coating and poly modified screed, a 6mm Rhine Gold Terrabound Resin Bound porous surface was installed, providing a smooth, seamless, hard wearing and decorative finish.
Due to expected movement from the existing flagpoles, a mastic sealer was applied to the interface and flexible joints were installed to minimise potential variations in movement.
During the scheduling and carrying out of the work, consideration was given to the expected high volume of visitors to the area, especially at peak times during the Changing of the Guard ceremony.
Addagrip approved contractor Resarf Flooring Limited, part of the The Fraser Bruce Group, has just installed 1650sqm of porous resin bound surfacing to the main courtyard and fountain garden area of one of the finest Regency castles in Scotland, Blairquhan Castle. Built in 1821, the castle is based on a design by the Scottish architect William Burn.
The client, having seen the Addagrip Terrabound Resin Bound product installed last year at Abbotsford House – the former home of Sir Walter Scott in Melrose – asked Resarf to install Terrabound at this building too. Terrabound is a permeable, hard wearing, low maintenance decorative surfacing system utilising natural aggregates and, at Blairquhan Castle, a 6mm Rhine Gold was installed to complement the aesthetics of the historic building.
The low maintenance surface was installed to accommodate vehicular or pedestrian traffic to the property which now functions as a hotel and wedding venue.
We are delighted to be involved with ‘The Just Retirement Garden’ at the RHS Hampton Court Palace Flower Show – from 8 to 13 July. The garden has been designed by 21-year-old Jack Dunckley, owner of Birchfield Nursery in Henfield, West Sussex.
The Just Retirement Garden is the largest at Hampton Court and will include a resin bound porous pathway from Addagrip – which is being installed by one of our approved contractors, True Grip.
The garden takes its inspiration from the progression to retirement and includes plants sourced from Italy to accompany those grown at Jack’s own nursery.
Good luck to everyone involved with the garden and we hope that Jack wins a gold!
