DRIVABLE GRASS® is a permeable, flexible and plantable concrete pavement system that is environmentally friendly and a beautiful alternative to poured concrete and asphalt.

Drivable Grass from Soil Retention

DRIVABLE GRASS® is designed to flex and conform, and will not crack or break like rigid concrete, or pop up and wear like plastic paving. DRIVABLE GRASS® offers a simple and reliable solution to storm water management through biofiltration, infiltration, and storage while not sacrificing valuable site area. DRIVABLE GRASS® promotes superior root penetration and moisture containment beneath the product, resulting in healthy turf.

DRIVABLE GRASS® offers the same strength and durability as conventional pavers and has a concrete compressive strength of 5,000 psi. There are many infill options with DRIVABLE GRASS® including grass, gravel, sod, ground cover, sand, dirt, bark, rocks, and artificial grass. DRIVABLE GRASS® provides opportunities for implementation in Low Impact Development, (LID) designs, as well as energy and resource conservation practices compatible with LEED®.

DRIVABLE GRASS® porous pavers can save project costs and limit the impact of the built environment. With the use of DRIVABLE GRASS®, storm drains, hydrodynamic separators, filtration devices, and detention basins can be reduced or eliminated. And, DRIVABLE GRASS® counts for required green space allowing for more usable land while reducing Heat Island Effect.

DRIVABLE GRASS® is cast with holes to allow for infiltration, superior root penetration, and moisture containment beneath the product resulting in healthy turf. A cast-inside engineered polymer grid allows DRIVABLE GRASS® to flex and conform to irregular ground surface contours along pre-defined linear grooves, while providing the intended structural support needed for daily use, even when saturated.

DRIVABLE GRASS® permeable pavers can be used for a wide variety of applications including driveways, parking areas, fire lanes, pathways, access roads, green roofs, slope armor, trickle channels, stream bank installation, culvert outlets, bioswales, ditches, RV and boat storage, golf cart paths, drainage channels, and more.
