    Resin Bound pathways for woodland walk in West Sussex botanic garden

    Contractor Limegate Ltd

    1350m2 Terrabase Rustic Oak

     Addagrip approved contractor Limegate Ltd has just installed over 1300sqm of Terrabase Rustic Resin Bound porous surfacing for paths for Wakehurst Place, owned by the National Trust.        

    Wakehurst Place on the High Weald of West Sussex consists of over 500 acres of beautiful ornamental gardens, woodlands and a nature reserve. Funded and managed by the Royal Botanic Gardens Kew, the site is home to the Millennium Seed Bank, the largest wild seed conservation project in the world.

    As part of a project to renovate existing walkways and create new pathways at Wakehurst Place, VGC Construction was contracted by Graham Construction to excavate and re-build over 450 linear metres of footpaths in the Bethlehem Woods area of the gardens. The requirement was to provide surfacing that would be decorative, hard wearing, sympathetic to the woodland environment and porous enough to provide maximum drainage in this wooded area. 

    Addagrip’s ‘no-dig’ Terrabase Rustic Resin Bound porous surfacing was the perfect solution. Using a 6-10mm aggregate size in a Rustic Oak blend, the patented system provided a ‘rustic looking finish with excellent drainage. The product was installed onto a mix of different surfacing types including a cellular confinement system to minimize disruption to tree roots and deal with the lateral drainage requirements of this hillside location.

    The finished pathways offer a decorative yet practical solution that deals with the drainage issues, providing a surface that is hard wearing, low maintenance, suitable for wheelchair users and pushchairs to give all year access to the beautiful woodland area.

    The Resin Bound surfacing was completed in May 2018.
