Why and where to use Breedon Golden Amber Gravel

Breedon Golden Amber gravel is supplied nationwide and its uses range from footpaths and private driveways to prestigious public sector projects.

The finished natural appearance of Breedon Golden Amber gravel complements either modern day or historical surroundings and is a favoured choice with many architects, local authorities, landscape architects and designers and specifiers.

Breedon Golden Amber gravel provides a non-slip, non-trip surface which knits together to form a solid bonded, durable base and a surface which scarifies with use for a beautiful, natural soft appearance.   More aesthetically pleasing than concrete or asphalt and a safer option than paving slabs which have a tendency to dislodge and become loose in time, Breedon Golden Amber self binding gravel is a popular choice for hospitals and sensory gardens as our 100% environmentally friendly material is suitable for use with wheelchairs, walking frames and mobility scooters. 

Also suitable for many leisure and recreational uses, Breedon Golden Amber gravel can be seen on golf courses, bridle ways, canal towpaths and cycleways.  Please note that breedon self binding gravel is not free draining and requires a cross fall or camber to shed water from its surface into adequate drainage.

As a matter of interest, Breedon Golden Amber Gravel is also used at some of the UK's zoos such as Chester, Twycross, London and others for pathways and also animal enclosures such as the giraffes, elephants along with the Meerkat enclosure at London Zoo.


When ordering your self-binding limestone please specifically ask for "Breedon Golden Amber Gravel" as some of our market competitors use the term "Golden Amber Gravel" to promote their alternative products which are not produced by Breedon Southern Ltd.
