Context

Addagrip approved contractor Limegate Ltd installed over 1300sqm of Terrabase Rustic resin bound porous surfacing for paths at Wakehurst Place in Sussex.

Wakehurst Place on the High Weald of West Sussex consists of over 500 acres of beautiful ornamental gardens, woodlands and a nature reserve. Funded and managed by the Royal Botanic Gardens Kew, the site is home to the Millennium Seed Bank, the largest wild seed conservation project in the world.

Product supplied

As part of a project to renovate existing walkways and create new pathways at Wakehurst Place, VGC Construction was contracted by Graham Construction to excavate and re-build over 450 linear metres of footpaths in the Bethlehem Woods area of the gardens. The requirement was to provide surfacing that would be decorative, hard-wearing, sympathetic to the woodland environment and porous enough to provide maximum drainage in this wooded area.

Addagrip’s ‘no-dig’ Terrabase Rustic resin bound porous surfacing was selected. Using a 6-10mm aggregate size in a Rustic Oak blend, the patented system provided a rustic looking finish with excellent drainage.

The product was installed onto a mix of different surfacing types, including a cellular confinement system, to minimise disruption to tree roots and deal with the lateral drainage requirements of this hillside location.

Outcome

The finished pathways offer a decorative yet practical solution that deals with the drainage issues, providing a surface that is hard-wearing, low maintenance, and suitable for wheelchair users and pushchairs to give all year access to the beautiful woodland area.
