Product highlight in recent publication

Recently Arbor Age Magazine published an article showcasing the use of Porous Pave for city and park streetscapes for tree surrounds.  Eliminating the need for steel grates or constant maintenance of bark mulches …see how this product has revolutionized how we should think about tree surrounds.

Here’s the recap of the recent article submitted by David Aquilina at Porous Pave

Made in the U.S.A., Porous Pave is a pour-in-place permeable paving material. The XLS formulation is 100 percent recycled rubber chips mixed on site in a portable mortar mixer with a liquid binder. When poured in place, XLS cures in 24 hours to form a strong, solid tree surround that is permeable. With 27 percent void space, air and water reach down to tree roots. More than 1.5 gallons of water pass through per second per square foot.
