LID Permeable Paving

Installing a Residential Ecoraster Bloxx Driveway with Rubber Pavers

The homeowner of this property in Listowel, Ontario was motivated to rehabilitate his driveway using a permeable and truly eco-friendly alternative to asphalt.

Ecoraster is a fully sustainable, heavy duty and cold-weather friendly permeable paving solution that can be used in lieu of alternative paving materials such as asphalt and concrete, not only for residential driveway areas, but also for commercial/industrial applications.

The homeowner was very pleased to learn that Ecoraster is manufactured from 100% post-consumer recycled plastics and is 100% recyclable and/or reusable. He chose to use the Ecoraster Bloxx grid system with rubber pavers that are manufactured from 100% recycled tires, locally sourced in Ontario.

The sustainable driveway surface will help to reduce the stormwater runoff entering the storm sewers, and thus help protect the nearby natural water bodies from additional pollutants.

Ecoraster Bloxx porous grid system is easy to maintain and will not be adversely affected by the freeze-thaw cycle that is common to the Listowel area.

The homeowner was very pleased with the ease and speed of the Ecoraster Bloxx installation and the benefits of the permeable paving system, and porous paver base below, which where immediately apparent after the first rain fall.

The Ecoraster Bloxx permeable driveway system helped the homeowner achieve his goal of using a truly sustainable, eco-friendly product for his home!
