Advantages to using permeable paving
Permeable pavers are an effective means to manage surface water on your hardscapes. This paving system allows water to drain through joints between the pavers which are typically filled with fine gravel chips. The water then drains down into a open stone layer below, and is adsorbed by the subsoil or runs off through draintile. They come in a range of shapes, colors and sizes. This is a great way to reduce surface run off from patios and walks. There is a bit of maintenance involved.
