    Would you like to be the premiere patron of matireal? This will offer up to 500 square feet of our corrugated weave (or up to 400 tires). Our geo-textile can become an alternative driveway for your home or permeable parking surface for your business. This reward covers the initial consulting, collection, reduction, delivery, and assembly of a woven 6" mat of matireal. Considering a permeable pavingment system? Instead of sinking money into the pavers themselves, consider these funds going to local youth to remove discarded tires from the waste stream, reducing them, and constructing this structural weave in modular segments, and delivering the ultimate ecological dream to your site.

    Note: This offer is only available in SE Wisconsin and will not include the clearing of the site, installation, aggregate, or backfill and compaction necessary for completion of this system.
