LOW IMPACT DEVELOPMENT (LID)
DRIVABLE GRASS® provides opportunities for storm water containment, bio-filtration, infiltration and storage.
BEST MANAGEMENT PRACTICE (BMP)
Long term effective solutions such as armored bio-swales and rain gardens.
DRIVABLE GRASS® has a concrete compressive strength of 5,000 psi and low water absorption that limits wear and cracking.
Proven, real-life testing for extreme loading, not carefully crafted lab tests – Refer to our third-party reports.
FLEXIBILITY WITHOUT MEMORY
Reinforcing grid and grooves in DRIVABLE GRASS® give it the ability to conform to uneven contours.
The design of Drivable Grass® allows it to flex with freeze/thaw cycles without cracking at the surface. Low moisture absorption and pad size/shape prevents cracking, spalling and catching edges. Snow melt infiltrates, but does not pond and re-freeze.
Insects and micro-organisms within the grass infill help to significantly break down pollutants in storm water.
Reduces site runoff, promoting ground water recharge and onsite storage.
DRIVABLE GRASS® enables superior root penetration into the underlying bedding course, establishing a cohesive root zone below the mats.
LOWER RUNOFF COEFFICIENT “C”
Helps to reduce storm drain and inlet size.
REDUCTION IN HEAT ISLAND EFFECT
Light color and grass surface reflects solar radiation helping to reduce regional heat gain.
Requires less removal of sub-base than traditional pavers or thick blocks.
QUICK & EASY INSTALLATION
Installs in half the time of conventional pavers. Flexibility and design of the product offers significantly more forgiving placement compared to large rigid blocks.
