When deciding what to incorporate into your landscape design, don’t overlook the importance of pavers and hardscape. Not only do walkways guide people throughout your yard, they can also be used to create a mood or atmosphere.
If you would like to add sustainable options to your paving that not only look good, but are good for the environment, permeable paving is an ideal place to start.
While other non-porous materials direct water to storm-drains, permeable or porous surfaces help ground water recharge by allowing water to flow into open spaces between the materials. Permeable paving also filters pollutants and solids from the water as it percolates through the surface. In rennet years, permeable paving has become more popular among home and business owners due to the innovative methods to save water.
Maintaining your driveway, patio and walkways is often dependent on the seasonal climate of your region.
