EcoRaster for parking & driveways

EcoRaster’s load bearing capacity and cellular design contribute to its use as a permeable paving material. And because the EcoRaster carries the load the fill material is not compressed. This means that stormwaters can be quickly absorbed and grass root systems will not be damaged by vehicular traffic.

Widely used throughout Europe for driveways, lanes, roads, and parking lots. Controls mud, formation of potholes, and washboard roads.

EcoRaster for parking & driveways

The exact finish of your EcoRaster permeable pavement driveway or parking area may vary from the ones shown here. They will however follow the same basic layering principles.

  • The thicker your gravel base the heavier the load your EcoRaster can support.
  • The thicker the gravel base the more water it can absorb and transport.

The fill material is up to you. If you are using a stone or gravel type fill you should limit the amount of dust or lime in the mix as this will pack tighter and limit the permeability of the finished solution.

Note; the geosynthetic option shown in the stone finish design is optional. This option will allow water to flow from the gravel into the earth without allowing the earth materials to migrate towards the surface. Additionally the fabric will provide protection against erosion.

If you are considering the grass option please note that the finished surface of the grass (where the grass and roots meet) should be below the top level of the EcoRaster. This will ensure that vehicular traffic will not harm the root systems. Click on the green arrow in the top left to see the sectional view of the green top option.

Temporary Drives and Parking

If you’re hosting an event such as a wedding, family reunion, or farm tour EcoRaster can quickly be installed to protect both your guests and your property. Be prepared by installing EcoRaster wherever you need to protect your landscape.  EcoRaster will keep your guests and participants happy and dry and will minimize costly repair efforts required at the close of your event.

  • Turn your lawn into a temporary parking lot.
  • Create a temporary path and keep your guests dry and your landscape protected.
  • Create pads for your guests to park their motorhomes

EcoRaster will easily handle all your ground reinforcing needs. Made with Low density polyethylene (LDPE) EcoRaster allows for expansion and contraction and is not brittle like similar products made with high density polyethylene (HDPE). The patented safety interlocking system (patent no. 0576939) guarantees the secure connection of individual tiles. The connectors (36 pieces per square meter) interlock securely to create one uninterrupted surface. EcoRaster is the superior permeable paving stone. In fact EcoRaster is the only paving grid officially approved by NATO.
