As part of the overall landscaping project at this property in Wixford, Warwickshire, Addagrip approved contractor Nicholsons was asked to install several access pathways into a particularly steep hillside.
This was a challenging aspect of the build and the client, who has young children, specified a non-slip, hard wearing surface that did not detract from the landscape. The aim was to achieve a natural aggregate surface without the issues of loose gravel being displaced and migrating to the bottom of the hill. Terrabase Rustic, a resin porous bound system in a 6-10mm aggregate blend, seemed the ideal option. The client selected a Rustic Beach colour which sat nicely with the brick of the refurbished barn but did not stand out too much in this prominent position. The main challenge of the project was the need to carry the resin up and down the 85 steps in buckets to fill the treads. Over 300m of Terrabase Rustic in Beach blend was installed over the hillside and the client was very happy with the result.
