Green Parking

Most parking lots are not environmentally friendly.

They use non-renewable materials, destroy habitats, and create storm water runoff, requiring expensive drainage systems.

Grass paver systems offer a greener alternative that’s cheaper than concrete, stronger than asphalt and easier to maintain.

Interlocking plastic grids are seeded and grown, and create a surprisingly durable surface.
It filters rainfall as it passes through while preventing flooding and erosion.

The grids are made of recycled plastic which can be recycled again at the end of their life cycle.
And unlike asphalt, grass pavers provide a habitat for insects and don’t reflect heat, which helps to cool adjacent buildings.

Grass Pavers are easy and attractive, and create parking lots that are promising and green in more ways than one.
