Grasscrete™ from Stormwater360 is a cast-on-site cellular reinforced concrete permeable paving system that is an effective Water Sensitive Design (WSD) solution to reduce impervious surfaces and promote infiltration.
Stormwater regulation limits the number of impermeable surfaces on a property; Grasscrete is considered permeable by many city councils allowing for a greater building footprint.
This permeable paving system essentially allows for grass to grow in between steel reinforced concrete, which mimics natural processes and allows stormwater to infiltrate into the ground, where it percolates through the soil and is naturally filtered.
The amount of water that can be disposed of with permeable paving depends on the subgrade. For example, sandy or gravel based soils will allow much more water to soak away than clay soils.
Grasscrete is an environmental paving system designed for high load-bearing and is ideal in low traffic areas such as car parks, driveways and other applications such as spillways and erosion control.
