Bickleigh Barracks Memorial Garden
As a tribute to their fallen comrades, the Marines of the 42 Royal Commando raised the money needed to commission and install an 8ft bronze statue of a Royal Marine. The pathways before consisted of square blocks that had become uneven over time and a trip hazard. The solution was to introduce smooth even routes and the Leeson resin bound product was chosen for its decorative, porous and anti-slip properties. This means that it not only looks good, but the rainwater won’t collect on the surface, but drain through, and will reduce the risk of slipping during the winter.
The owners of this farmhouse at Tavistock in Devon were over the moon with their new driveway installation of LeesonBound PU4844. They had instructed the contractor to match existing stone on the site and to blend with the colour of the house. The contracting company delivered with a precise match to their client’s request and installed it to an extremely high-quality standard. The self-draining properties of LeesonBound were of significant importance to the customer, as was the anti-slip finish. The appeal of a resin bound driveway is that it can be combined with any blend of aggregate according to the client’s preference.
