Grass porous paving system

Grasspave2 is a recycled plastic porous paving system designed to add green space and environmental benefits while providing a paved surface. The Grasspave2 system is comprised of a sandy gravel base course, Hydrogrow polymer-fertilizer mixture, the Grasspave2 ring and grid structure, sharp concrete sand, and grass seed or sod. Grasspave2 provides incredible load bearing strength while protecting vegetation root systems from compaction. High void spaces within the entire cross-section enable excellent root development and storage capacity for rainfall from storm events. Stormwater is slowed through Grasspave2 surfaces, which deposits suspended sediment and increases discharge time. Suspended pollutants and moderate amounts of engine oils are consumed by active soil bacteria, which are aided by the systemís excellent oxygen exchange capacity.
