Grassrete - A cast-in-place, monolithic, pervious concrete pavement, that is continuously reinforced to provide superior structural integrity. Successful installations throughout the world have proven Grasscrete to be the premier option for void structure concrete.
Grasscrete provides a variety of landscape solutions, maintaining a sustainable green product design. It is used for emergency access lanes, delivery access routes, overflow parking areas, and for intermittent drainage channels that help prevent erosion. Grasscrete can be used as an exposed utilitarian product for functional applications or as a concealed system with vegetation, such as grass or native ground cover installed over the concrete. This system allows you to mitigate drainage issues while maintaining strong structural integrity that allows for some of the heaviest vehicles to operate unencumbered.
Bomanite has represented Grasscrete for over 20 years with installations throughout the world in all climate types. Although Bomanite is not the exclusive licensor of Grasscrete many Bomanite partners have established a reputation and technical expertise in the process. Using ABS plastic tools known as "formers" and specialty proven mix designs, Grassrete can be installed with no freeze thaw or clogging issues.
Grasscrete offers the ability to provide year-round access for a variety of applications requiring structural paving surfaces without compromising the aesthetics of the exterior landscaping. Grasscrete is a very sustainable product that can employ a large recycled material content both in the form of aggregate and binder such as fly ash or slagâ€”its lifespan is indefinite and can be recycled itself to form the aggregates for future Grasscrete applications; providing Specifiers with a truly sustainable, eco-friendly system to accommodate a variety of needs .

EcoKrete / Pervious Concrete
Pervious concrete, also referred to as porous concrete, permeable concrete, no-fines concrete, gap-graded concrete, and/or enhanced-porosity concrete pavement is a unique and effective method used by concrete professionals to address important environmental issues and support sustainable growth initiatives. By capturing stormwater and allowing it to seep into the ground, porous concrete is instrumental in recharging groundwater, reducing stormwater runoff, and meeting governmental stormwater regulations. This pavement technology creates more efficient land use by eliminating the need for retention ponds, swales, and other stormwater management devices. In doing so, pervious concrete has the ability to lower overall project costs.
