Green pavers bring a lot of benefits, starts to be quite popular solution offered at theconstruction market, so thanks to that relatively budget-friendly and niece solution for anyurban structure. It fit in perfectly with any street scene and they provide extra benefits whenit comes to spatial effects, drainage and even traffic signalling. Green pavers have extra-largerecesses all round to establish a green street scene without the need to install separatespacers. The greenery ensures that some of the water evaporates while some of it isabsorbed.
Some of the benefits:
To achieve a greener effect, simply removing the occasional paver from the pavements is notsufficient. In practice it will detract from the overall coherence of the pavement and thepavement will end up skew. There are existing commercial solutions with a hollow plasticbrick which ensures a good connection I the laying pattern and in which grass has sufficientroom to grow. The dedicated reinforced ribs ensure strengths and stability, enabling thepavers or slabs around the plastic brick neatly in place. Sizes and tolerances of the available on the market solutions are exactly tailored to our paver sizes (21 x 10.5 x 8cm). The circumference of the plastic element is slightly smaller and they sit somewhat lower as well,so that they sink further down within the pavement.
