Interested in a new paver patio for your yard? You may want to consider permeable pavers, which are a great alternative to more traditional pavers. They allow water to filtrate through the surface, down into the ground, while still providing a stable surface.
About Permeable Pavers
Interlocking concrete permeable pavers are commonly used. Each paver interlocks with the others but has a hole in the surface where it can be filled with vegetation, gravel, mulch, turf, etc., which creates a filtration for the rainwater to enter the subsoil. Porous concrete (which has pores, or small holes) can also be used for permeable pavers.
While permeable pavers aren’t maintenance-free, they only require minimal upkeep! Interlocking and porous concrete pavers should be kept clean and free of debris, so sweeping and vacuuming are necessary about every three months or so.
Permeable pavers are great for landscaping. They can be used for:
- Pool areas
Permeable pavers can even be used for commercial applications—such as fire and emergency vehicle access lanes, public parking lots, etc.
Whatever type of permeable paver you install, they offer many benefits! Permeable pavers:
- Act as a self-draining system—they are great for yards prone to flooding issues.
- Allow us to more easily preserve the quality of our water and also increase the quantity of good quality water.
- Can help reduce erosion.
- Can potentially save you money (and headaches) related to draining system installation and water issues.
- Can handle heavy loads (perfect for driveways, patios, and other high-traffic areas).
- Help enhance the aesthetic of your outdoor living space.
