In order to comply with new environmental regulations, adding grass to a small area on the edge of a car park is no longer sufficient. A car park is more than just a question of paving and design. It is the opportunity to create a green, permeable and sustainable system that meets eco-friendly construction requirements and integrates more easily into urban planning.
A permeable car park also contributes significantly to water management. Permeable soil in a car park helps filter and infiltrate rainwater deep into the soil. There is zero runoff and the risk of flooding and contamination of water tables and streams is reduced, or even eliminated. The benefits are many. In addition, a permeable surface can provide resistance to heavy weather events, while a conventional concrete mix does not.
When you prioritise permeability, the benefits quickly outweigh those of a conventional asphalt mix (and without the added burden of pouring). A green cark park brings sustainable vegetation back into the urban environment and encourages the return of biodiversity threatened by artificialisation of soils.
You don’t need to be a plant expert to create a green car park. The mixture of soil, substrate and minerals, planting turf, choosing the grain size for the drainage layer… No need to worry about any of this; leave it to our experts. Just ask yourself: which solution should I choose ?
