Atlanta, GA (PRWEB) April 26, 2013
In April 2013 Super-Sod Outlets across Georgia, South Carolina, North Carolina, and Jacksonville, FL, became the first distributors of Drivable Grass® in the Southeast. Manufactured in Atlanta, GA, Drivable Grass is a "green," plantable, water-permeable paver system for growing turf in medium-traffic areas. Homeowners, business people, and municipalities can now think outside the garden and grow a lawn where never dreamed. With Drivable Grass pavers, grass grows stronger and can now hold up under foot and tire traffic in driveways, walkways, service and access roads, loading docks, fire lanes, and parking lots. With this innovation, hot and drab concrete surfaces are becoming cool and green.
The turf farmers at Super-Sod are experts at growing sod of all types and know what healthy grass roots need. The innovative design of the pavers allows for grass roots to spread laterally in four directions. Other pavers have sectioned-off growing areas that constrict spreading stolon growth (grass roots are called stolons) and weaken the lawn. Super-Sod has tested the pavers and are using them in the customer parking lot at their new office in Perry, GA, where they are showcasing three types of Zoysia and two types of Bermuda growing under the parked cars of customers. The sod experts deem the design of Drivable Grass tiles to be the best pavement system on the market for healthy turf roots.
Zoysia and Bermuda are the best grasses to grow in Drivable Grass pavers because they are particularly strong lateral spreaders, sending out stolons and rhizomes (above ground spreading stems) to colonize an area. Drivable Grass pavers provide the space the stolons and rhizomes need for health, vigor, and drought tolerance in a drivable lawn.
