Grass Pavers

TurfPave is a lightweight, high strength, interlocking plastic grass paver which allows you to create areas subject to pedestrian and occasional vehicular traffic.

The high load-bearing structure protects the grass roots against compaction. Each cell contains notches, that allow spreading grasses to knit together so you get even coverage and the large open base promotes healthy root development.

It's perfect for spaces like this which need to have a dual purpose. In this case the lawn doubles as a family friendly play space and a living driveway. Traditionally, a lot of people would choose to pave an area like this because it has to withstand traffic, but TurfPave allows you to have all the benefits of a lawn, with the high strength of a hard surface.

These are made by a company called Elmich Australia and they cost around $30 a square metre.

They are used in the construction of emergency access, overflow parking, home driveways, golf buggy paths and slope stabilization. The grass pavers are also suited for gravel containment.
