Sand in Grasspave2
A backhoe dumps sand for workers to spread inside the Grasspave2 system.
Curbing with Grasspave2
Concrete curbs separate the Grasspave2 from the surrounding grasses and pavement.
Grasspave2 parking lot
The Grasspave2 parking lot is a distinct area from the rest of the park's parking areas.
Grasspave2 parking
Grasspave2 will not suffocate the tree roots in the tree islands. Grasspave2 provides drainage, oxygen and CO2 transference for healthy trees.
Components of Grasspave2
The photos demonstrates most of the the components of a Grasspave2 system: Base course, Hydrogrow, the Grasspave2 units, and the sand fill. What's missing? Just seed or sod.
Installing a Grass paver
Workers have cut the Grasspave2 structure to fit around the curbing.
