We recommend the following types of bases on which to install the Resiscape system:
Tarmac is an ideal base for the Resiscape system as it can be laid directly onto the surface. If the tarmac is new, please allow 2 – 3 weeks before applying the Resiscape top surface. Also ensure that the tarmac surface is clean and free from oils before the Resiscape system is applied.
Concrete also provides a suitable base for the Resiscape system, but we recommend that the concrete is primed with Resiscape Primer before the Resiscape system is installed. If expansion joints are present in the existing area, the joint must continue through to the Resiscape surface. There are a number of options on the market which will create a suitable and aesthetically pleasing finish. If no expansion joints are present in the current concrete base it is recommended that you seek professional advice to have these in the base every 2.5m to 3m intervals, if this advice is not followed, the Resiscape system could potentially fail.
Resiscape can also be used for tree pits, tree surrounds, garden paths and patios. However before you use Resiscape for these applications please seek further technical advice from our Customer Care Team.
