Super-Sod's new product, Drivable Grass, an environmentally friendly, permeable alternative to concrete, will be featured in their booth at the upcoming 2014 Water Education Summit in Asheville, NC, September 8-10. Discussions will include: conserving water locally, climate change, and watershed planning. Super-Sod brings Drivable Grass to the discussion as a beautiful, easy, and durable option for conserving water, reducing runoff, and mitigating Heat Island Effect.
Drivable Grass is a simple solution for water resource management using living material (turfgrass) to capture and process pollutants without giving up the area to unsightly detention basins or filtration ponds. Turfgrass is a natural bio-filter. Storm-water storage is increased and runoff is minimized when turfgrass is used in conjunction with Drivable Grass to filter, collect, and store run-off underground, underneath a Drivable Grass infrastructure that can be designed to have an attractive, modern look and to allow people and vehicles to use the space in a functional way.
The Drivable Grass system is used for storm drains, detention basins, ditches, filtration systems, bio-swale reinforcement, culvert outlets, fire lanes, and parking lot rainwater capture, just to name a few applications.
Landscape professionals, builders, planners, architects, educators, activists, and anyone in the public sphere interested in learning more about water conservation or Drivable Grass can attend the educational event.
