Are you dreaming of the soft look of a natural ground cover, like grass or loose stones, but with the structural integrity of something tougher, like bitumen or concrete? Thankfully, there’s no longer a need to choose between strength and style. With porous pavers, you can get the best of both worlds.
Porous pavers utilise a strong plastic mesh that can be overlayed on pretty much any surface. The pavers are made from a plastic that is incredibly strong – it’s comfortably able to withstand the weight of a vehicle – and is formed almost entirely from recycled material.
The mesh allows for the natural ground cover to take centre stage, while giving it the stability and strength to be used as a traffic area. Grass can be grown through the pavers (and will often do better with the protection of the pavers than without), allowing you to use your lawn as you wish without the fear of creating dips and channels. Likewise, porous pavers can be laid atop gravel or stones to ensure that the surface stays in place, and doesn’t kick up water, dirt or the stones themselves.
Porous pavers are the perfect answer to the common problem of council soft-landscaping rules (Australian councils generally require at least 15% of your property be soft landscaped). What’s more, you can install them yourself, with simple interlocking all that is required.
