Back Yard Transformation

Back Yard Transformation


This backyard in Toronto was 80% concrete, and 100% impermeable. With little drainage or green space available, these homeowners needed a back yard transformation that would eliminate their drainage issues and provide an enjoyable outdoor space.


To prepare the base, the asphalt and existing grass were removed and the entire surface was levelled. A geotextile was laid down to prevent weeds from growing through, and a fill of clear stone gravel was used to create the base for the Ecoraster Bloxx.


The Ecoraster Bloxx was installed much faster than the customers had anticipated. The design incorporated both a main surface area that was 10’ x 10’ as well as a BBQ base, flower pot bases and a pathway. In total, the entire installation of both the grid and concrete inserts happened within a few hours. Once the installation of the grid was complete, sod was used to fill in the spaces around the grid to complete the beautiful aesthetic of the back yard.


These new homeowners have been overwhelmed with the transformation of their space. Since the installation was completed, they have been faced with heavy rainfall many times. The filtration rate of Ecoraster has ensured that all rain was absorbed into the ground leaving virtually no water on the surface of this yard. The design and function of Ecoraster Bloxx truly worked together to provide a beautiful space that is easy to maintain and made from environmentally friendly materials.
