Grasspave2 | Gravelpave2
Grasspave2 porous paving allows you to park, drive, walk, ride or lounge on a beautiful grass surface. It performs the functions of asphalt or concrete pavement, but with the aesthetics of a lawn – all while enhancing the environment.
Grasspave2 is a structure which provides incredible load bearing strength while protecting vegetation root systems from deadly compaction. High void spaces within the entire cross-section enable excellent root development, and storage capacity for rainfall from storm events. For example, a 13 inch cross-section (one inch Grasspave2 with sand and a 12 inch base course) can store 2.6 inches of water – 13 inches x approx. 20% void space).
Stormwater is slowed in movement through and across Grasspave2 surfaces, which deposits suspended sediment and increases time to discharge. Suspended pollutants and moderate amounts of engine oils are consumed by active soil bacteria, which are aided by the system’s excellent oxygen exchange capacity.
Gravelpave2 porous paving allows you to park, drive, walk, or ride on a beautiful decorative gravel surface.
Gravelpave2 is a structure to provide heavy load bearing support and true containment of gravel to create a porous pavement surface with unlimited traffic volume and/or duration time for parking. The system can be used for storage and filtration of rainwater.
For example, a cross-section with 12″ deep base course (at 20% void space) and the one inch of Gravelpave2 (at 35%) would store 2.75″ of rain.
