Description

A ground reinforcement grass paving system ideally suited to projects where a hard surface capable of supporting vehicles is required within a grassed area or other space where a naturalistic appearance is preferred. It functions as a SUDS permeable pavement, controlling surface water at source by directing it to the sub-layers.

Turfstone provides a low cost paving option with minimal visual impact. Its honeycombed cavities are designed to facilitate the growth of grass within a supporting concrete matrix, allowing grass to be cut in the conventional manner.

As each element weighs approximately 35 kg machine-aided installation is recommended to comply with manual handling regulations. Special lifting aids that can be attached to excavators, tele-handlers and cranes are readily available.
