Can I use MaxPro pebble resurfacer on bare ground?

Can I use MaxPro pebble resurfacer on bare ground?

Hi everyone,


I'm looking to refresh an outdoor area (maybe about 10 square metres) and have been thinking about covering it in this stuff -


The ground is currently covered by ugly Ikea plastic floor decking, I think on the bare soil - weeds are coming through all over the place. I want to pull these up and replace with an alternative surface.


The Maxpro product seems ideal and is advertised that it can be used on bare soil, but in the example given it's only used as a weed barrier around a tree - so I'm not sure if it will be suitable to cover a large area that will be walked on, have garden furniture etc.


Anyone know if that will work, or if it really needs to be laid on a concrete surface instead?  Or any better ideas?
