Expanding the limits of your parking spots

Do you need to expand your parking area? If you do, you have probably considered what it would cost to extend the given space and more than likely not to ecstatic about what you saw. Traditional means of paving, such as concreate or asphalt, can be extremely expensive, for what you want paved. Though, there are new methods that can help you avoid such high cost, while being able to accommodate your need. But, what alternatives are there if you don’t want to go the route of concreate or asphalt? If your property has usable areas for pavements, but are currently filled with grass, you can simple reinforce the grass itself, instead of paving over it. Grass paver are a relatively new way of solving your pavement problem.

How grass pavers work 

Truegrid offers a truly unique method when it comes to reinforcing the natural ground. Though you may wonder how it does that. Basically, Truegrid manufactures a base level for the grass to be put on. Utilizing large plastic sheet, segmented into in varying sizes to accommodate the given area. Each sheet has what I referred to as a potted plant, these individual pots can house whatever type of filler material you wish, not being solely designated for grass only. The process of the installation is known to cut construction time to almost half of traditional means and require less equipment and personal. This is mainly due to it easy to use method and less fickle filler material.

What Truegrid offers

There is a lot more benefits to this method that cannot be as easily seen once it has been installed. For starters, the plastic base itself is extremely durable and strong. Holding over 6800psi, this is before adding any type of filler material, which will increase its strength considerably. As I have mentioned earlier the sheets are comprised of little plant pots, this is what truly sets this method apart. Each pot hold whatever material that you are using individually, it does this to secure the material in place, while at the same time using each other for support. The holes at the top and bottom, is to allow any type of liquid to pass through unaided. No more water pooling up, or mud being thrown, if a vehicle drives on it. A byproduct of this method, also allows heat to pass through it, unlike concreate or asphalt. There is practically no maintenance, since the pavement is under the filler material. Its life span is between 25 to 60 years depending on the use of the surface.


If you have gotten this far, you probably want to know what the price is for this method. That’s a bit tricky, it really depends on the size of the area that needs covering and the materials used. But, on average, you can install this pavement for half the price of what concreate or asphalt cost. That by the way is the total cost, including labor and materials. So, if you desperately need some more parking spaces or even a trail, Truegrid has what you need at a more affordable cost.
