How is this accomplished?
The key to eco-friendly foundations is CORE Landscape Gravel Reinforcement Grids, which consist of a foundation of interlocking honeycomb-celled panels and a geotextile backing. Once filled with gravel this foundation is suitable for vehicle or pedestrian traffic with no compromise in strength or durability. Gravel is held in place within the grid structures to create an even, pedestrian, handicap or vehicle friendly surface that can be used year round. This weed-free, eco-friendly and permeable foundation system improves storm water management and replenishes the soil. The pourous nature of these foundations benefit trees and shrubs within its vicinity, allowing rain water or snow melt to seep back into the soil as opposed to running off in storm drains which further taxes community infrastructure.
Resin Bound Gravel Landscaping
Using local aggregate you can create a surface that blends, conforms and integrates more cohesively into your landscape surface. Using the structurally stable CORE Gravel™, filled with clean gravel and over-topped with SolePave resin-bound gravel, glass or other surface aggregates, you have a surface that is A.D.A., S.U.D.S. and LEED compliant, 100% porous and aesthetically flexible.
Grass Surfaced Parking Foundations
CORE Grass™ is a turf stabilizing system, a green choice for low-impact parking. CORE Grass Reinforcement Grids provide amazing stability, grass protection and sustainable drainage, while delivering the desirable visual and natural effect of grass paving. A beautiful, sustainable and economical solution to manage storm water and reduce heat island effects in public places, parking and traffic areas. Parking lots, access roads, and driveways installed with CORE Grass™ are stabilized so turf can grow, with no ruts or sinking, and all the beauty and benefits of a natural, green surface.
