Expect heavy traffic on Grasscrete
Grasscrete is the UK’s best known permeable grass reinforcement solution. It’s been around for 40 years and still maintains the best sustainable credentials for drainage and ground reinforcement to help maintain a durable hard landscape design.
Grasscrete and Grassblock are the two systems available; Grasscrete is cast on-site concrete system while Grassblock is a pre-cast concrete block alternative. Both offer massive benefits compared to plastic systems for vehicle traffic or secondary parking,
Load bearing capabilities really make a difference on Grasscrete, the system can take loads of up to 40 tonnes almost immediately after the concrete is cured, with no need to wait until the grass grows, a problem common to many other grass paver types especially plastic versions.
Both offer deep soil pockets to establish grass growth, providing extensive grass coverage to give effective green landscaped vistas to large concreted areas. The permeable structure doesn’t require separate piped drainage so can be easily incorporated into any Sustainable Urban Drainage (SUDS) schemes.
Once in place and fully established Grasscrete achieves quick grass cover, providing a green landscaped area, often blending with the surroundings. Car parking, emergency access roads, flood alleviation secondary verge parking are just a few applications all using concealed concrete structures of grasscrete or Grassblock, to help maintain the landscape without spoiling the view.
Grasscrete brings a proven hard wearing sustainable solution to ground reinforcement, so talk to the ground reinforcement experts of 40 years at Grass Concrete Ltd
