Case Study- Ecoraster E40 Black Gravel-filled Driveway
Installed: July 2017 by Fern Ridge Eco Landscaping, Mike Prong and team.
Location: Toronto, Ontario
The owners of this home located in central Toronto wanted to update their driveway and front garden area in a LID fashion. They contacted Mike Prong from Fern Ridge Eco Landscaping, a company focusing on environmental friendly alternatives and storm water management.
They decided to use the Ecoraster permeable paving system, filled with black gravel granite, as a replacement for their existing asphalt driveway which was in need of repair.
The old driveway was removed and disposed of, a porous gravel base was installed. The Ecoraster E40 was placed on top of the gravel base and filled with black granite gravel. The Fern Ridge Eco team commented on how straight forward and easy it was to install the Ecoraster.
A permeable pathway and beautiful gardening beds were added to finish the project.
The front yard looks beautiful, everyone is thrilled with the results!
The Ecoraster driveway is easy to maintain and when winter comes, it can be cleared of snow with either a snow plow or snow blower. The Ecoraster driveway surface will also remain level, stable and puddle free and will not need nearly as much, if any, salt to keep it safe in the winter.
