Permeable Paving

Permeable paving is an option that does not just look attractive – it also has great environmental benefits.  When standard paving is used, water runs off the surface and goes into street and storm drains. During a heavy rainfall, water gushes into the drains, putting pressure on water infrastructure.  Permeable paving allows water to seep through into the ground, just as nature intended. Storm water runoff is reduced and water management improves. For many home and business owners, permeable paving is the smart, eco-friendly choice.

SmartStone Grassblock

Currently only available in Gauteng, KwaZulu-Natal and Cape Town.

 

 

 

The SmartStone Grassblock is designed to combine the benefits of paving and vegetation. Grass, on its own, is not suited to vehicular traffic. Too much paving can cause water management problems. Combine the two, however, and you have a win-win situation.

The SmartStone Grassblock has a modern linear shape, opposed to the more commonly used honeycomb shape blocks. It is designed with cavities that allow grass to grow through. Ideal for driveways and parking areas, it provides good load bearing capacity and harmonizes with the natural surroundings. The grass helps to maximize soil water retention, protect against erosion, and give colour and life to the area.
