Summary: Submitted by Owner: “I installed Grasspave2 for part of our driveway to help protect the root zone of a large pecan tree and reduce the overall amount of hard surfaces on our site. I generally don’t like grass for landscaping; however, I really wanted to try this product in a residential application. The City of Austin does not currently give credit for pervious paving materials towards meeting the required impervious cover limits (45% on this site), and this was not the motive for using this material… I just thought it would be an interesting feature. Process: the area was leveled a few inches below the adjacent driveway approach in the front and parking area by the garage; course aggregate was laid down; Grasspave2 product rolled out and snapped together over the aggregate and filled with sand flush to the top of the recycled plastic rings; and finally covered with Zoysia Palisades sod. The plastic rings are supposed to protect the roots of the grass. The grass grew through the sand within a few weeks.”

Competed installation with sod for grass coverage. Two concrete pads lay at both ends of the Grasspave2 structure.
