Resin Bound Drives Borders

Resin bound driveways often incorporate block borders because they complement or contrast the resin bound drive, patio or path. Crucially, as well as the aesthetics of your chosen border they perform an important function too. In this short article we explore the functionality and the aesthetics of borders on resin bound drives. Finally, we explore the types of block borders commonly used.

Functionality of resin bound borders

  • Containment: Block borders act as a physical barrier, preventing the resin bound material from spreading outwards.
  • Structural Support: They provide additional support for the edge of the driveway, especially on areas with slight slopes or curves.
  • Curb Appeal: Well-chosen blocks can add a finished look and definition to the driveway, enhancing its visual appeal.

Aesthetic appeal of borders

  • Variety of styles and colours: Blocks come in various styles, colours, and textures, allowing you to complement the overall design of your home and garden.
  • Contrasting or complementary colours: You can choose block colours that contrast with the resin for a bolder statement, or opt for complementary colours for a more cohesive look.

Types of block borders for resin bound driveways

  • Concrete blocks: A popular and affordable option, available in various shapes, sizes, and colours.
  • Granite setts: Natural stone blocks offering a premium and elegant look. They are highly durable and low-maintenance.
  • Brick edging: A classic choice that adds a traditional touch to your driveway.
  • Cobblestones: Natural or reclaimed cobbles can add a rustic charm to your driveway.

When we choose blocks they must be a suitable height and width to effectively contain the resin and complement the overall design. Therefore, a professional installation is needed to ensure the blocks are level, secure and create a clean edge for the resin bound material. By incorporating block borders, we can add functionality, improve the structural integrity and enhance the aesthetics of your resin bound driveway.
