Does the lawn grow well on grids or it dies soon?
It is necessary to design a proper stratigraphy of lapilli and volcanic sands in order to ensure nutrients, light and water to the law: if those prescriptions are not respected the lawn will soon die, as every green area.
A correct drainage is particularly important, otherwise water stagnates, preventing the lawn to grow healthy.
Backfill soil found on the building site can be used as substrate?
Preferably not, neither for grids nor for roof gardens. This is why backfill soils are soft, clay grounds that tend to absorb a lot of water, to withdraw and are not good substrates for drivable lawns.
Why is it preferable to use lapilli for the substrate?
Because it is drainant, porous and resistant to compression. This avoids drainage problems and land subsidences. Moreover, it provide the necessary hoxigenation to the roots.
Which type of grid should I use for a public parking?
Both RUNFLOOR and GEOFLOR are perfect solutions, thanks to the elasticity of the material they are made of: these products offer better performances in such low maintenance parkings.
What can I use to create a lawn parking for a shopping centre?
No grid can assure lawn parkings in a shopping centre, because the grass will not enough light and water and it is costantly under stress. Gravel parkings are better solutions.
Does the colour black ruin the natural effect?
No, it doesn’t: as every traditional grid, RUNFLOOR should be installed with a correct stratigraphy which allow a perfect growth of the lawn which completely covers the surface.
