benefits of permeable pavers on your landscape

What are the Benefits of Permeable Pavers?


Permeable paver patios, pathways and driveways are much ‘greener’ than their asphalt or concrete counterparts.  Also referred to as “pervious,” permeable pavers allow water to filter into the ground rather than causing runoff.  Permeable pavers allow snow and ice to melt more rapidly.  Water drains into the ground rather than refreezing on the pavement.

When the water is absorbed by the ground rather than flowing into the sewer drains, it greatly reduces the amount of man-produced irrigation that your lawn requires in the direct and surrounding areas.  This helps nourish deep-rooted plants and trees along with surface vegetation like turf and flowers.

Environmentally-speaking, less storm water runoff means that our streams and riverbeds are less likely to flood and the rate of erosion will be reduced.  It also decreases the amount of toxic pollutants such as chemicals and oil that get washed into water supplies, affecting aquatic life, fishing, swimming, and even, in some cases, drinking water.

Permeable pavers come in a huge variety of attractive styles and colors.  Talk to one of our expert designers about your green vision for your landscape.

Time Lapse Video: Permeable Paver Patio Installation

Watch our expert team install a patio via this time lapse video. Our professional installation is highly customizable so that you get exactly the look and style that suits you best. Here, we demonstrate two different patterns of paver alignment: diagonal and horizontal.

Permeable paver patios are environmentally friendly. Rainwater can trickle through the pavers and soak into the ground instead of contributing to stormwater runoff.  Learn more about the benefits of permeable pavers.
