Breedon Golden Amber Gravel

Breedon Golden Amber Gravel is the ultimate self binding solution for perfect pathways and driveways and the only self binding gravel to hold The Royal Warrant.

Soft and natural in appearance, Breedon Golden Amber self binding gravel complements both modern day and historical projects. Held in very high regard for its performance, durability and versatility it can be seen at some of the country's most prestigious stately homes and enhances many of the most beautiful National Trust and English Heritage gardens.

Breedon Golden Amber gravel is 100% environmentally friendly, a natural limestone material graded 12mm to fines with a high content of naturally occurring marl which gives our product its unique self binding properties.

Once compacted in accordance with our laying instructions, Breedon Golden Amber gravel knits together to form a solid base and a surface which self scarifies with use leaving a fine dressing of chippings, making this an ideal choice not only for pedestrian and vehicular use, but also for cycleways, bridle paths, golf courses and many other leisure and recreation uses.

Breedon Golden Amber gravel can be laid by hand or through a paving machine.
