     Stillman Landscape attended New England grows this winter, one of the largest green industry conventions in the area! NE grows is fantastic for us in the winter.  It exposes us to some of the newest cutting edge materials and processes of the future. Although this year we had a snow storm during the event, we still made it there!

                One of the newest products we came across was a composite paver made of recycled bottles and tires. I could not even tell when looking at this paver, that it was not concrete or clay until the paver was handed to me. It was amazing to see how light weight it was. The color could perfectly replicate any paving stone. I’m extremely excited about being able to offer this paver, not only for aesthetics, but also for going green in a very sustainable way, durability and sustainability! How much greener does it get than recycled bottles and tires! Not only are these pavers an environmentally friendly option, but they also open up options of being in different outdoor spaces you wouldn’t ordinarily think of. A great example of this would be a roof top terrace; where the weight of materials being used is critical, or even on a deck, porch or breezeway! These pavers can be used on any type walkway, patio and driveway. There is also a style that is offered for being a permeable paver. Imagine that, using a permeable paver that allows rainwater to pass through the joints and is made of recycled materials!
