That is only true of some types but not Grass-Crete, manufactured differently.
The secrete is to have the soil below level of surface that enables grass to 
survive when driven over.

I have to agree that the more modern plastic units are far better but the 
original question was quite specific.

I think Grasscrete is awful. It invariably ends up with hardly any grass in 
it and they use a plastic former that they burn away which is bonkers!

You could try something like Golpla which is a Geosynthetics product that can 
be filled with grass or gravel whilst being highly compression resistant. 
Should be fine for parking and it can sit on top of a cellweb type 
construction too.

Hi All,
I've been tasked with finding a grasscrete produce that will sit at 
ground level on a field to provide extra parking.
Couldn't find much info on any previous forums, so wondered if anyone 
know of a good product?
I've seen the pre-formed concrete meshes before but don't know if 
they're still available or any good?
Has anyone used anything similar recently?
I know there are other 3d cellweb products around, but I need to stick 
to my brief of 'grasscrete'.
Cheers
Trevor
