Porous Pave™ surfacing material is the right choice for Tree Surround installations. Mixed on-site, and applied in a non-intrusive single monolithic pour and cured in 24-hours and ready to be used. The surfacing material is made of recycled tires, stone aggregate and proprietary binding agents, allows the water to flow through - approximately 6,300 gallons per hour, per square foot! Which diminishes water runoff, by allowing water to soak through into the ground. Porous Pave promotes healthier trees, shrubs, plants and boarders well with; stone, grass, water, tiles, chrome, wood, and more.
Porous Pave is highly permeable & porous surfacing material that provides tremendous benefits over traditional tree surrounds.
Porous Pave lets trees be trees allowing water to pour through every square inch.
Porous Pave won't freeze or crack like other tree surrounds and surfacing materials.
