EcoGrid Applications - Gravel Driveways

EcoGrid enables you to create the ultimate, maintenance free gravel driveway. Gravel driveways look great when first installed but after time the gravel moves and compacts into the sub-base. This results in ruts and potholes requiring ongoing maintenance and more and more gravel. EcoGrid eliminates all of these problems.

The EcoGrid Solution:

  • Very easy and quick to install (Can be a one man job)
  • The unique grid design holds the gravel in place and separates it from the sub-base. Thus the gravel doesn't move nor does it require constant "topping up" with more gravel.
  • Working on the "snowshoe principle", our grid disperses the weight of the vehicle over a larger surface area. Thus preventing compaction and improving water drainage.
  • Improved water drainage and no compaction means that ruts and potholes simply don't develop.
  • Reduced maintenance costs and safety.
  • EcoGrid's wall thickness and the use of the proven locking tabs prevents raveling of the grid even in vehicle turning areas.
  • Tough and durable, EcoGrid is resistant to chemicals, corrosion and climate extremes.

The choice of an asphalt, concrete or paved driveway is environmentally unsound due to being an impervious surface. Impervious surfaces lead to water quality degradation, reduced groundwater levels and the detrimental "Heat Island Effect". EcoGrid provides an economical and environmentally sustainable alternative.
