General info of Grass grids

The benefits of Grass grids


More and more we are seeing issues with a shortage of groundwater on the one hand and flooding on the other hand, all because water is unable to permeate into the ground due to an increase in paved surfaces (concrete, tiles, paving blocks, etc.). This is why the Flemish Region has introduced stricter legislation on precipitation, effective since 1 January 2014: precipitation/rainwater must either be collected in a rainwater reservoir, or be allowed to permeate into the ground. Grass grids and gravel sheets allow you to have a water-permeable surface, therefore allowing water to readily permeate into the ground. This prevents both a shortage of groundwater and prevents flooding, all without having to invest in a costly drainage system. This also reduces our ecological footprint and prevents the limitation of natural habitats.
