Often, the green spaces that are concreted over in order to create driveways are precious oases which allow heat to escape downwards and wildlife to live. Another major issue caused by concrete driveways is flooding. Because concrete isn’t permeable, it doesn’t allow excess rainwater to drain away. Instead, during times of heavy rainfall, water pools and can cause damaging flash floods.
A major benefit of grass and turf pavers is that they allow the drainage of storm water back into the underground soil. Grass and turf pavers are environmentally friendly, for the storm water runoff is recycled, rather than going into our waterways.
Aesthetic Advantage of Grass and Turf Pavers
Grass / turf pavers have an aesthetic advantage as well. Lush green grass will continue onto the driveway for example, hence your front lawns can remain uniform, without being damaged. The grid system will enable you to protect your lawns, even when parking cars on it!
Grass / Turf Pavers Maintenance
After installation of grass / turf pavers, maintenance is very minimal. It should be treated as if it were part of your front lawns. Therefore, you would water and mow the grass pavers system.
