Gravel is often used for pathways, parking lots, driveways and access areas. It is a low cost surface that is permeable allowing rain water to enter the ground recharging the aquifers with minimal impact to the environment. Gravel can be problematic at time and cause accessibility issues for strollers, wheelchairs, crutches and those with mobility issues due to the fact that gravel, by nature, moves around a lot. Ecoraster® provides an immediate, long lasting solution for loose gravel areas by stabilizing the gravel fill, eliminating all migration and compaction of the gravel fill.
Ecoraster® can be used to rehabilitate an existing gravel area by pushing aside the gravel ,installing the Ecoraster® and using the existing gravel to fill the cells of Ecoraster®. Ecoraster® also immediately eliminates the “dust problem” that is common to loose gravel areas. There will be no potholes or uneven areas with gravel filled Ecoraster®. The surface will remain level, stable and safe for all even during sever rain events. Ecoraster® will also allow gravel surfaces to be snow plowed and delineated using permanent parking markers. The possibilities of using Ecoraster® for gravel containment are endless and include nature pathways, access areas, parking lots and much, much more.
