The quick answer is “no”; weeds cannot grow through resin-bound stone’s sub-base and therefore up to the surface. Stone aggregates and a specialized resin are combined to make resin bound, which is then hand troweled onto a suitable sub base, such as tarmac or concrete. Resin-bound surfaces are SUD-compliant, so water drains immediately, preventing algae buildup and puddling. Additionally, because the surface is crack-free, weeds cannot grow there. Cracks in concrete and asphalt are ideal places for weeds to take hold and grow. But with a resin-bound surface, there are no cracks for them to exploit. Finally, the top layer of a resin-bound surface is too smooth for weeds to gain a foothold; they cannot grip onto it, so they cannot grow. So, rest assured that your new resin-bound surface will not be home to any unwanted weeds.
The low maintenance, beauty, and durability of resin-bound surfacing are some of its most noticeable benefits. It resists weeds and needs little periodic upkeep to maintain its pristine appearance.
It is advisable to sweep away any debris with a stiff brush, and as long as a solid sub-base supports the surface, weed growth can be almost eliminated with a light jet wash once or twice a year.
Resin-bound surfaces are an excellent way to achieve a beautiful, low-maintenance outdoor space that will last for years. With proper installation and care, your resin-bound surface will be weed-free and require little upkeep, allowing you to enjoy your outdoor space worry-free.
A resin drive’s appropriate sub-bases support it so that weeds cannot take hold, and it is also smooth, so they can’t get a grip.
Resin-bound surfaces such as driveways and resin-bound patios are an excellent way to achieve a beautiful, low-maintenance outdoor space that will last for years. With proper installation and care, your resin-bound surface will be weed-free and require little upkeep, allowing you to enjoy your outdoor space worry-free.
When choosing a new patio surface, many options are available on the market. However, not all of these surfaces are created equal. Some are more susceptible to weed growth than others. For example, concrete and asphalt driveways often have cracks and crevices, providing a perfect home for weeds to take root. In contrast, resin-bound surfaces are much less likely to experience weed growth. This is because the surface comprises smooth stone aggregates combined with a specialized resin. There are no cracks or crevices for weeds to exploit, and the top layer of the surface is too smooth for them to get a foothold. As a result, you can rest assured that your new resin-bound driveway will be free of weeds.
If you are looking for a beautiful, low-maintenance driveway surface that is not susceptible to weed growth, then resin-bound surfacing is the ideal option. With proper installation and care, your resin-bound driveway will provide you with years of trouble-free use.
