Pratex, the grass saver

The grass saver Pratex is a modular element useful for the construction of driveways and pedestrian areas, safeguarding the grassy surface: thanks to its larger cells than the average, it keeps the lawn compact and thick even when passing or parking cars.

Pratex is a plastic grass saver used to prevent grass areas from eroding. The wide cells extend the lifetime of the grass even when used as parking.

The grey Pratex module is used as gravel stabilizer by maintaining it at the correct level and preventing the formation of holes and puddles.

Due to the larger cell of the lawn saver than standard products, Pratex provides more space for the roots of the grass to retain moisture in the soil. It also comes with coloured caps for parking lines in white, yellow or blue.
