Concrete is often the first material that comes to mind when considering options for driveways, car parks or footpaths, whether that be in commercial, industrial or residential areas. In many instances, this is because of the high load bearing capabilities and durability of concrete.
However, concrete is impermeable and can create higher stormwater runoff, which is often polluted with chemicals particularly in areas of high vehicle use, which then runs into drains and eventually into our waterways.
Permeable paving is a solution to this – and many other problems concrete creates – that is on the rise, Stormwater360’s Kevin Jonathan says. Their permeable paving system, Grasscrete, is a simple system that essentially allows for grass to grow in between steel reinforced concrete, which mimics natural processes.
