we bought a house last year and unfortunately it had some underpining issues. We got all that sorted but that has left bare exposed concrete in my drive way. I have got natural pebble resurfacer from Bunnings. Was hoping to get some tips on how to do and blend it with the rest.
If the new stones are a similar colour to the existing, then you shouldn't have too much difficulty blending them together. I've used this product a few times and found it fairly forgiving.
I'd advise you to paint the primer up and onto the existing pebbles to ensure the new product bonds well to them. Apart from that, you'll just want to taper the progression into the old surface. Try to remove that darker staining with some cleaning products and/or a pressure washer before commencing. If you do not clean the staining, then there will be a distinctive dark outline which will highlight the repair.
You should find this instructional video helpful: How to use MaxPRO Pebble Resurfacer.
Please let me know if you need further information or had questions.
Thank you so much. I think with the given tips it shouldn’t be a problem. Last time I used the wrong colour and the surface was uneven as I just patched the required and didn’t think of blending in.
Thank you for giving so much of knowledge and confidence to carry on some projects which otherwise would have costed me heaps.

Welcome to the Bunnings Workshop community. Thank you for joining the discussion.
Unfortunately, Pebble Resurfacer is not applicable on bare earth. It has to have a solid surface like concrete so that it has something to anchor onto. If you are planning on covering an area, I suggest considering the other possibilities such as pavers, artificial turf and of course concrete. The plus side of putting concrete in is that now you can either tile it or put powdered oxide into the concrete to give you colour.
