VAST Green Pavers

Hit The Green Deck

deck_med_boardwalkVAST Enterprises, based in Minneapolis, Minnesota has broke the green barrier in the traditional mentality that landscape pavers must be made from concrete or clay. Made from a highly engineered material comprised of up to 95% recycled materials, their Composite Pavers are the first socially responsible paver alternatives in the industry, a highly engineered material designed to maximize strength, durability and appearance. It is manufactured in a scrap-free process that produces zero toxic or harmful emissions. VAST is the first composite paver manufacturer with a closed-loop recycling program which redirects recovered pavers back into manufacturing new products. Greatly exceeding the LEED performance requirements in several areas.
