Reduced Maintenance

Porous Pave is ideal for use around trees — allows air and water to penetrate to tree roots while providing a durable, slip resistant surface.


  • Reduces maintenance commonly found with metal tree grates – garbage & cigarette butts.
  • Can be easily cut as the tree grow larger.
  • Pour-in-place material can fit any shape or size.
  • Low cost, durable installations provide years of maintenance-free service.
  • Recycled rubber gives it flexibility so it withstands freeze-thaw cycles without heaving cracking or breaking slip resistant material.
  • Replace trip hazards with a slip resistant material

Porous Pave consists of recycled rubber tires, stone aggregate and a moisture-cured polyurethane binder. Porous Pave is engineered with 29% void space. Independent testing confirms that Porous Pave allows up to 5,800 gallons of water per hour per square foot to drain directly through its surface, permeate down into a compacted aggregate base, and then slowly filter into the ground.

Typical install: 2” crushed stone base, 2” Porous Pave. Cures in 24 hours.
