If you desire the look of something different for your home parking needs or outdoor entertaining surfaces, you may want to consider permeable grass pavers.
A green alternative, permeable pavers are a system that enables homeowmers to have the strength of concrete or traditional pavers with the look of a seamless lawn. These pavers provide a pervious load-bearing surface. They're constructed of a roll of plastic rings that are installed on a base gravel-and-sand layer. A soil additive and either sod or fast-growing grass are installed next. The grass fills in and covers the plastic pavers.
These pavers are an alternative to other products that could produce serious rain runoff or unappealing aesthetics for your home or business. There are many applications for this product, including walkways, utility access, overflow parking, "green patios" and driveway alternatives. What's more, because of their permeable nature, water and nutrients are able to adequately reach the grass' roots and prevent soil erosion and other wash-out conditions.
