Terracrete hard lawn blocks hold many benefits for landscape designers and contractors looking to install permeable interlocking concrete pavers.
“From an aesthetic point of view, they are very versatile,” says Holger Rust, Terraforce’s managing director. “A grass driveway, a rustic gravel driveway or an attractive pattern of pavers can provide the finishing touch to a residence or development that is looking to stand out. In addition, permeable grass pavers can add a parklike or pastoral feel to many areas that normally require hard paving,” he states.
“It is also an alternative to impermeable urban surfaces, as the block allows for unrestricted water penetration and can help to manage storm-water runoff by temporarily storing rainwater runoff before filtering it back – cleaned of impurities – into the soil. Rainwater that would normally run off into rivers and streams is returned directly into the ground,” Rust explains.
Manufactured locally and internationally by Terraforce licensees, these versatile eco-surface hard lawn block units can be laid in different patterns and may be used with or without ground anchors for the lining of riverbanks and other areas subject to soil erosion. The paving of grassed roads and parking areas, as well as the stabilising of steep embankments such as bridge abutments, can be undertaken with Terracrete blocks.
