Total Protection were very honoured to be involved with this prestigious Hampton Court, Magic Garden construction.

The scope of works for this project included the installation of Addagrip’s 3mm Autumn Toffee Terrabound product and Total Protection also undertook the painting for the ‘Dragons Head’ displayed as a spectacular central feature.

We laid the Terrabound Resin Bound Gravel to a total of 850m2 of surrounding pathways to areas which are rich in character, providing opportunities for play that will engage and excite both children and adults.

The surfacing was undertaken over 3 x visits and included preparation of the concrete substrate by grinding and pressure washing clear all contaminants and creating the required 12mm depth where necessary, ready for the Resin Bound Gravel to be applied.

Installation of movement joint edge detail with matching coloured inserts were also installed to correspond with the concrete beneath.

Use of a Therma Hydrometer and Thermometer with Surface Probe were also used also in preparation due to cooler temperatures in order adhere to Addagrip’s BBA accreditation instructions.

Installation dates were met even though unsuitable weather conditions caused several postponements to our works.

The Dragon Head took 2 days to complete, consisting of 3 x specialised coatings.

All parties involved at Hampton Court and the Magic Garden project were delighted with the results.
