We are specialists in the installation of stone paving systems which comply with Sustainable Urban Drainage Systems for efficient water drainage.
There are a number of SuDS compliant decorative surfaces that we can install including resin bound gravel and the Sudscape stone paving system.
We can install permeable stone paving systems to a number of areas including driveways, paths, schools and many other private and public outdoor surfaces.
We offer a variety of services regarding the installation and maintenance of decorative stone surfaces which comply with Sustainable Urban Drainage Systems (SuDS). These specially designed flooring types are becoming more popular at domestic homes, schools, public facilities and parks as they are attractive, functional and long lasting. One of the most beneficial features of these stone and gravel paving designs is that they are porous, meaning any water is able to drain through quickly instead of sitting on the surface. These systems can also prevent pollution to wildlife habitats by collecting the water and filtering it before it is put back into the environment.
If you are interested in finding out more information on these type of surfaces, please fill in our contact form where we will contact you regarding the different specs available and the benefits of each. We get back to our clients as soon as possible making sure to answer any questions or queries that they have straight away.
The most popular outdoor surface type which is designed to suit Drainage Systems is resin bound gravel. This specification is made with a combination of natural stone and a strong binder to form a mixture. The stone and binder will then be applied and screeded onto the chosen area, usually with a tarmac sub base to act as a foundation. Due to the small gaps left between the stones when the surface has been applied, the flooring is permeable and rainwater drains through more efficiently. This prevents any runoff water from travelling to other areas and causing flooding during periods of heavy rain.
Many homeowners are having SuDS-compatible resin bound paving installed for driveways and gardens as a way to reduce water damage in urban areas. If you would like more information on a SUDS eco drive, make sure to have a look at this page http://www.sustainable-urban-drainage-systems.co.uk/driveway/suds-ecodrive/ The designs can be extremely decorative with a variety of natural and coloured stones to choose from.

A SuDS compliant surface is a type of flooring that allow rainwater to pass through easily making them more sustainable than other surfacing types. The porous features of a SuDS compliant surfacing means that rainwater will not puddle the surfacing and so you will not need to worry about flooding of the area during heavy rainfall. It is recommended for these type of surfaces to be installed for a more sustainable area. Depending on the sub base and flooring type you have installed, some SuDS compatible surfaces could be used to recycle water. If you're planning to recycle rainwater using you SuDS flooring, make sure you use a professional contractor to ensure the water is safe to recycle.
Our company are specialist SuDS compliant surfacing installers working at numerous different organisations. We can help each client to design a bespoke outdoor flooring using the best resin bound gravel flooring specifications. If you have to stick within a certain budget we will talk through the costs of installing porous paving and create a design which suits you and your price range. The different choices of stone are completely customisable and we can offer both natural gravel and brightly coloured options.
As well as absorbing water from the surface, the stone flooring types used with Sustainable Drainage System can also be used to recycle rainwater for domestic purposes. The resin bound system uses a tarmac sub base so this is not suitable for reusing rainwater; however there is a Sudscape system which may be used. To find out more about this, please click here: http://www.sustainable-urban-drainage-systems.co.uk/pathway/resin-bound-path/ The Sudscape flooring specification has a base layer of rubber mixed with stone and a wearing course of resin bound gravel. As there is no need for a tarmac base, water that soaks through the surface can be collected and used for household things like flushing toilets.
We have worked as professional SuDS-compatible surfacing installers at many different local, private and public facilities to install decorative and functional stone surfaces. It’s extremely important for businesses and individuals nearby to create a sustainable environment which protects urban areas from flooding and also helps to put clean water back into the environment.
