There’s a paver out there, the Vast Paver, that’s been showing up on HGTV, the Today Show, and Renovation Nation. It’s probably because the composite paver is made from roughly 90-95% recycled scrap tire rubber and plastics — every 1,000 square-feet of pavers saves 500 tires and 15,000 plastic containers from landfills! These durable pavers work in a number of situations, including for low-volume traffic, driveways, walkways, rooftops, decks, and patios. Colors include redwood, boardwalk, village, waterwheel, polo, and olive (below).
Vast Pavers are approximately one-third the weight of concrete and can be installed with relative ease on a grid system sold by Vast Pavers. The colors are fade-resistant, and using them can help contribute to obtaining several LEED credits. Check out Vast Pavers in action in these videos:
