Grasscrete Can be Cut to Conform to Your Design

Grasscrete can complement the design of structures and walkways, throughout residential and commercial spaces. When your are in need a custom low cost design, Grasscrete Molded Pulp Formers are the answer. One distinct advantage that the Grasscrete Molded Pulp Formers have is that they can be easily cut to conform to irregular shapes, winding pathways, along existing curbs, to best conform to the formwork.

Grasscrete provides a variety of landscape solutions while maintaining a sustainable, “Green” product design. As a cast-in-place, monolithic, pervious concrete pavement that is continuously reinforced to provide superior structural integrity, Grasscrete offers the ability to provide year-round access to a variety of applications without compromising surrounding aesthetics or environment. Grasscrete installation costs are significantly lower, production is increased and environmental concerns are virtually eliminated.

Utilizing pervious concrete products such as Grasscrete improves the environment through waste water management, minimization of heat island effect and various other detrimental issues associated with non-porous paving surfaces. Additionally, Grasscrete allows for continuous vehicular traffic such as a parking lot while supporting vegetation such as grass or ground cover varietals. Aesthetically pleasing while responsibly sustainable makes Grasscrete an excellent choice for many pervious concrete application.

Approximately 130,000 square feet of Grasscrete was installed as a usable parking area for JP Morgan Chase Bank property in Columbus, OH. The parking area was designed to contain bands of regular concrete within the Grasscrete to provide access points for rolling loads or mobility impaired staff. The Partially Concealed Grasscrete System was installed over a drainage layer of crushed stone that will retain water; which was one of the city’s concerns as the Polaris facility is running out of water retention areas. Under drains were installed to catch additional water and pipe it to bioswales adjacent to the lot. Over all the Grasscrete parking area provides a much cooler, reduction in heat Island effect and more visually pleasing area than the typical blacktop parking originally proposed.

Approximately 10,000 square feet of Grasscrete was installed in NREL’s Central Arroyo Detention Pond located in Golden, Colorado by Bomanite Licensee, Colorado Hardscapes. NREL has had great success with the application of on-site pervious pavement systems to reduce site runoff and maintain predevelopment hydrologic conditions.

Over 59,000 square feet of pervious paving materials have been implemented on the Colorado STM campus in support of their living laboratory environment. Grasscrete allows the native planting in the pond to grow, protecting the root systems within the voids, and provides easy cleaning and scraping of the pond as needed without disrupting the pond’s shape and root system. The concrete was integrally colored an earthy brown tone to blend in with the natural surroundings. Grasscrete provided an excellent, continuously reinforced, cast-in-place pervious concrete solution for NREL.
