Environment Times is raising money for the homeless this winter by creating a 'virtual ecohouse'. Marshalls is one of the donors. They write: Bioverse Permeable Paving System makes a great occasional car parking area or pathway, whilst retaining the environmental benefit of a decorative grassed area.


By dealing with rainfall runoff in a sustainable way, Bioverse does not require any planning permission. Once established the Bioverse System will take carbon from the atmosphere, having positive impact of the environment and becoming carbon neutral over the life of the product.

Bioverse Grass seed is available from Rigby Taylor which will improve structural strength and load bearing on the product.

For driveways with a steep incline or specific installation and design requirements please contact Marshalls Technical Advisory Service on 0370 411 2233 for further assistance.
