CORE Grass

A reinforced grass (turf stabilizing) system that allows you to park and drive on grass without killing it.

CORE GrassTMTurf Stabilizer is a green choice for low-impact parking. A beautiful, sustainable and economical solution to manage stormwater 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.

Maryland Department of Environment Approved Product

CORE Grass is environmentally friendly in design, function and material. Many plastic grass grids on the market lack the strength necessary to last and absorb high levels of traffic; not so with our honeycomb design. This product provides amazing stability, grass protection and a sustainable drainage model as well as providing the visual and natural effect of a grass paver. Using our recommended structural soil mix you will NOT compact the soil in our grids. Translation: YOU CAN DRIVE ON OUR GRASS SURFACE ALL DAY LONG! We do not limit use to only 5 passes a day!

CORE Grass is a proprietary interlocking design with manageable panel sizes that makes for easy installation. They are easily trimmed to work around curved border areas. Applications are ideal for use in hardscapes or landscapes where you need the porosity and beauty of natural grass to support all types of traffic (see our Catalogue for additional information).
