About Grass Paving
There are a number of fairly common techniques available that allow grass to be incorporated into a pavement to provide 'the best of both worlds', ie, the appearance of grass but the load bearing capability of a well-constructed pavement or driveway. They can be utilised in those areas where the hard permanence of a typical pavement might be undesirable, such as in conservation areas, roadside verges, emergency services access, canal towpaths, farm tracks or rural settings, and they are also used for erosion control in some situations, although the specification and type of system(s) used can be completely different to that outlined below. Different proprietary systems provide varying ratios of hard-pavement to grass, and the best system for any given project will need to take into account these differences. Some systems can only be installed by specialist contractors, while others can be installed by competent workmen or even diy-ers. It should also be noted that special grasses ought to be selected for planting the various systems, as most ordinary seed mixtures are unlikely to be sufficiently hard-wearing to withstand being trafficked. A few suggested seed mixtures are given further down the page.
