About this deal

Where the decorative aggregate is being placed over a bare sub-grade, a construction grade geo-textile could be laid before the gravel is placed – it’s not essential but it will prevent any mud or dirt ‘pumping up’ from beneath and discolouring the gravel in months to come. When rainwater falls on a paved surface, it needs to drain away or the water flows across the surface forming pools, adding to the flood risk and cracking.

Easihold dries clear (but is milky in large quantities) and will not change or add a colour to your stones. Easihold is a water based, non-harmful, easy-to-use binder that leaves stones permeable, with a protective sheen. The stones you use don’t have to be dry upon purchase, but we do recommend washing and letting them dry before use, as some new stones can arrive with a silty deposit.

Sprayers can be flushed with white spirit between GravelHold uses which will help to remove any residue and prevent the binder from curing inside the sprayer. However, it’s not as durable as resin bound paving: the bonded aggregate particles may loosen over time, due to car tyres turning on the surface and it is not as easy to clean. Apply GravelHold to gravel paths with stones which are 1mm-10mm in size to create a solid surface ideal for supporting pedestrian traffic.

We recommend using 2 applications of Easihold when applying by the Pour On or Spray On method for the strongest finish. Usually not affected by rain after installation, able to be installed at lower temperatures and with quick drying times, our loose gravel resin has been designed for DIY use to allow you to create beautifully landscaped gravel areas without tradesmen or specialist equipment. Resin Bound Gravel Kits We have a comprehensive range of the most popular blends of gravels to make resin bound gravel installations as simple as possible. When several bags/tubs have been placed, a rake is used to spread and level the aggregate, covering the base, and fillings the gaps between the stepping stone flags. Unlike conventional resin bound surfacing, the binder component, ie, the resin, is not pre-mixed with the selected aggregate, so there is no requirement of a forced action mixer, no need for messy cleaning solvents, no demand for specialist rakes, lutes, floats and spreaders.Resin bound paving fixes together small stones with high-tech resin to form a firm, attractive surface.

When working with the larger containers, a required amount of the EasiHold liquid resin can be decanted into a simple sprayer or a basic watering can, topped-up as and when necessary. Depending on how your gravel surface is to be used will dictate the application method we recommend you use.

X-Grid is a recycled, UK designed and manufactured ground reinforcement grid which is able to withstand up to 420 tonnes per sqm, is easy to install and is fully SuDs compliant. My plan is to gravel both the rear and side of my bungalow, but I do not want the gravel to be loose underfoot. If you do not have existing gravel we can supply prepared clean and dry gravel in a wide range of colours. On this project, there’s a small area of loose gravel outside the kitchen door of a semi-rural property.
