The excessive use of concrete has made the spaces look so grey that we have lost the connection with the greens. To retain the relationship and furthermore to replenish the groundwater (the most important natural resource) one feasible way is to use Eco-friendly pavers in parking lots, front and back yards,pedestrian walkways and wherever possible. Using these pavers is a brilliant idea to keep the dust and dirt away and allow the water to percolate down. The Eco-friendly pavers beautify the vicinity by enhancing the greenery.
Perfectly engineered, these pavers allow rainwater to percolate into the soil. There are voids in the pavers where greens grow and create a path for water to flow in,also letting the top soil of earth to breathe. Once installed, Eco-friendly pavers create surfaces that restrict water logging to a great extent.
Unlike the concrete flooring, sprinklers can also be accommodated in these interlocking pavers. Any renovation or modification can be done without breaking or causing much damage to the pavers as they can be easily lifted and placed back again.
There are a lot of designs available in these pavers with the variation being in the location of the voids.
It is only one time investment usually ranging from Rs. 33 to Rs. 170 per sq. ft.
