A guide to the best paving solution for parents with buggies.

Despite having managed the Sales at SureSet before beginning my parenting journey I had never really taken note of anything that I walked over, unless of course I was barefoot walking on sand or enjoying the feel of grass beneath my feet.

Early on whilst on maternity leave taking my break from “paving” to enjoy finding my feet as a parent I set off for what I thought would be some enjoyable walks, a moments peace in tranquil surroundings. I soon realised that paving was against us, lots of paving has joins, its uneven and bumpy, its full of puddles (eeek, I don’t want to push my shiny new buggy through that), the buggy gets wedged in vast depths of loose gravel, the gravel gets stuck in the wheels preventing them from moving freely, small shards get stuck in your new tyres, somehow you need to lift the buggy over the gravel, the baby wakes (argh) and what you thought was a good idea of enjoying the great outdoors suddenly becomes a parenthood mission. Yet another thing you have to take into consideration when planning your outings, is it buggy friendly? can the wheels get through!? You have enough to think about, right?

Witnessed first-hand by myself, mum of 2, there really is such a thing as attractive, smooth paving which isn’t riddled with puddles……. Resin Bound Paving is the answer. It is a parents best friend not only in terms of pushing a buggy on a smooth, seamless finish which is permeable (puddle free), which means you succeed in keeping baby comfortable and most importantly asleep!, the child cannot dislodge any loose stone when they get to an inquisitive stage (where we currently are) meaning you won’t have a garden with stone scattered everywhere, you won’t have any bits of gravel to fish out of their little mouths, you can sit back, relax, enjoy your garden and watch them play safely.

Now back from maternity leave I have returned as a Marketing Assistant and I am hoping to combine my parenting journey with marketing and paving.
