JRPS Groundwork Ltd has used EcoGrid’s most versatile grid paving, EcoGrid E40 to create the permeable driveway of this project. Followed by filling the grid with black ICE gravel to get a higher weight-loading capacity, as well as getting this cool surface colour.

EcoGrid E40 Plus

If EcoGrid E40 is what you need, then you might want to check out the EcoGrid E40XXL version as well. This grid comes in 133cm x 100cm x 4cm, which means fewer joints are involved. It goes especially well with resin bound stone surfaces, but you can use it for other surfaces too.

Benefits of Using EcoGrid

Gravel is a popular driveway option because it is quick and easy to install, however, there are disadvantages to traditional gravel surfaces. Not only does using EcoGrid as a sub-base solve the problems, but it can also strengthen the ground and increase the load-bearing capacity.

Traditional Gravel Disadvantages

EcoGrid Solution

Spreading of GravelEcoGrid can keep the gravel in place so that it won’t spread to the pavement or road.
Crash Gravel into Smaller PiecesEcoGrid distributes the pressure from vehicles evenly so that the gravel won’t take up all the stress.
Uneven Surface Over TimeSince EcoGrid can prevent gravel from moving about, the surface will stay the same as on day one.
Regular Top-UpsIf the gravel is not moving, then top-ups are not necessary.
