Grey has been one of the most popular colour trends for homes throughout the 21st century. Due to the surge in popularity for Resin Bound, this trend is moving from the interior of homes to exterior spaces with beautiful new grey and silver Resin Bound driveways, patios and paths.

With 48 DALTEX Bespoke blends to choose from, homeowners are often drawn to the beauty of the grey and silver gravels on offer, with countless tones to choose from, including darker, lighter, or flatter greys and silvers. This is because:

  • Grey Resin Bound suits all types of property. From traditional Victorian terraces to modern luxury new builds to small, homely cottages, grey Resin Bound driveways look equally stunning in any setting and at any size.

  • Grey resin driveways can enhance almost any type of brickwork, paver edging or pebbledash colour scheme. They are highly versatile and provide an excellent opportunity to make a statement by contrasting with bold colours such as red or green.

  • Greys and silvers can be used in any design and they make a perfect background for any inset driveway design feature such as a logo, house number, shape or even a family crest!

  • Resin Bound driveways are permeable and don’t require planning permission as long as a porous sub-base or suitable soakaway is used and complies to Sustainable Urban Drainage System (SUDS) regulations.
