The Wabash Feed & Garden Store, beloved century-old Houston icon, has relocated. Wabash is a throwback country store featuring bunnies, chickens, natural dog treats, grapefruit trees, gardening tools, organic soil, and more. You can find quality goods sold by knowledgeable staff who are happy to help everyday gardeners go green.
When Wabash decided it was time to move to a new location, they insisted on developing their property respectfully to the neighborhood and the environment.
THE TRUEGRID® ADVANTAGE
Every inch of land on the site was needed. A concrete or asphalt parking lot would have required a detention pond. We eliminated the need for a pond with 25,000 square feet of TRUEGRID® PRO PLUS™. TRUEGRID® gravel-filled parking lots will maintain porosity and infiltration rates over the 25+ year lifespan of a project with low-to-no maintenance.
Wabash also chose TRUEGRID® pavers for the eco-friendly benefits and natural aesthetic.
TRUEGRID® parking lot eco-friendly benefits:
- Sub-surface stormwater detention
- Filtering of car pollutants and stormwater runoff
- 100% recycled materials
- Low carbon footprint
- Cooler temperatures in the summer
The construction of the property was regulated by the Texas Department of Transportation’s (TxDOT) Stormwater Management Program. TxDOT approved the TRUEGRID® installation.
TRUEGRID® PRO PLUS™ are flat pavers, not rolled, and are lightweight for anyone to install. They snap together with male/female joints which eliminates the need for stakes. TRUEGRID® are the strongest permeable pavers in the world simply by design.
