Environmental Pavers and Segmental Retaining Walls
are composed of a high strength concrete that is an environmentally friendly building product composed of both natural and recycled materials. The gravel, sand, and water used to make concrete allow it to be reused. During the production of these units, waste concrete is produced which is then crushed and reused as an aggregate, in turn reducing waste material in landfills. Fly ash, a waste material produced and then discarded by coal burning plants, is another component used in the manufacturing process which keeps this material out of landfills. Synthetic iron oxide is used to color these units and is derived from the burning of recycled scrap steel to high temperatures. The natural and recycled materials utilized in the manufacturing process result in an environmentally conscious and efficient building product.
Different styles of pavers lend themselves to an even greater eco friendly design.
Eco Pavers™ are a permeable interlocking pavement system that creates an aesthetic and durable pavement which allows water to infiltrate to the subsoil. The ECO Paver™ system provides environmental benefits as a designated structural solution for compliance with local regulatory storm water requirements.
Turf Pavers allow grass growth and, just as important, allow rainwater to percolate back into the ground.
