Drivable Grass Structures
Drivable Grass Structures enable your permeable and beautifully landscaped grass areas to be used for overflow parking, parties and events, fire lanes and a multiple of other uses without erosion, rutting and destruction of your green space.
Drivable Pervious Grass is a great solution compared to the expense of building a traditional parking lot for permitting processes and engineering. Overflow parking is often needed at many schools, places of worship, country clubs, residential parking and sporting events.

NDS EZ-Roll Grass PaverNDS EZ Roll Grass Pavers are a sustainable alternative to traditional paving methods. By protecting the root zone and preventing soil compaction, the pavers allow healthy grass to thrive in areas that would traditionally have impervious hardscaping installed. Flexible plastic paver mats are pre-assembled into rolls for easy installation on the job site. There are a variety of applications for the NDS EZRoll: Golf cart paths, service roads, jogging tracks, bike paths, residential driveways, parking lots, overflow parking lots, roadways shoulders, emergency vehicle access roads, truck maintenance and equipment yards, and construction entrance soil stabilization. In addition to these load applications, they are also an effective solution for erosion control on slopes and in swales. NDS EZRoll grass pavers are less expensive to maintain over time than traditional hardscaping and are more aesthetically pleasing.
Typar GrassProtectaGrassProtecta™ grass reinforcement mesh is a thick plastic mesh supplied on a roll that is installed directly onto existing grass to protect, reinforce and stabilize the grass against damage caused by traffic (pedestrians and vehicles.) Grass protection mesh protects grass that is prone to wear, rutting and muddy surfaces. GrassProtecta reinforces the grass for vehicle traffic (car and trucks) or for pedestrian paths and walkways. TYPAR Geosynthetic's GrassProtecta plastic mesh reinforcement has an oscillated mesh structure which is designed to increase grip and reduce slip.
Netlon Advanced Turf System (ATS)This technology consists of pieces of small interlocking, three-dimensional plastic polyethylene mesh elements. When incorporated in a sand base profile they provide a turf that resists compaction, with increased load-bearing capacities and enhanced infiltration properties. The system can be used for sports fields, grass overflow parking, utility and emergency vehicle access areas or equestrian facilities - anywhere that needs extra durability and recovery capabilities.
Frequently Asked Questions
What is a drivable grass structure?
A drivable grass structure may be achieved by use of an engineering product. Utilizing drivable grass structures for areas creates pervious cover for parking, storage, event traffic without creating rutting or stormwater runoff.
How does drivable grass work?
There are many types of drivable grass solutions but all engineered products are introduced and cultivated into the soil, or installed on top, or installed as part of an engineered profile.
How do I know which engineered solution is right for my project?
In order to determine the most cost effective and long term return on your investment we need to know your typical use for the area to make the best recommendation for product.
Are these products for residential or commercial use?
We have products for every need and vehicle weight loading from a golf cart up to a ladder truck for fire emergencies.
