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 that 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. 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.

Benefits of the Grasspave2 porous paving system:

  • Pervious Load Bearing Surface
  • Stormwater Pollution Filtration and Treatment
  • Airborne Dust Capture and Retention
  • Heat Energy Reflection Reduction, “Cool” Surface
  • Tree Growth within Parking Areas
