Soft Gravel: The hardness of gravel combined with the flexibility of rubber
Soft Gravel is a term used to describe a permeable, hybrid rubber and resin bound gravel surfacing system which is an attractive, durable, SuDS compliant alternative to hardcore, tarmac or concrete for paths, walkways, nature trails, cycle tracks, golf course buggy tracks, tree pits, patios and borders.
By combining recycled rubber chips (SBR) and washed, dried aggregate with a single-part high-tensile binder, a flexible but hardy surface can be created which requires little-to-no maintenance and will resist some of the harsh conditions a public surface is subjected to.
