Natural Hardscape Design
Bitumen is a waste product from crude oil processing, and the binder of asphalt. Green Footprints Park is a bitumen free landscape, and the parking lot at Green Solution House demonstrates that it is possible to make a robust paving surface for driving, without asphalt. Where needed a plant-based binder, called Vegecol, is used as an environmentally friendly alternative to bitumen – elsewhere aggregate surfaces are simply compacted fill.
