“PERMEABLE PAVERS”, specifically, permeable interlocking concrete pavers (PICP), are installed with layers of varying-sized stone or aggregate underneath that filter and direct stormwater to underground aquifers. Permeable paving mimics the way natural land absorbs water. With permeable concrete pavers, any rain that falls on your patio, walkway or driveway seeps back into the ground or the nearest storm drain.
BENEFITS OF PERMEABLE PAVERS FOR THE COMMUNITY
1. Infiltrate water back into the ground to recharge local groundwater supplies.
2. Maintain base flows in rivers that ensure streams and ecosystems are self-sustaining
3. Act as filter to offer improved water quality
4. Eliminate risk of evaporation of standing water and above-ground water storage
5. Light paver colors are highly reflective and reduce heat island effect
6. Reduce water use for landscaping
BENEFITS OF PERMEABLE PAVERS FOR HOMEOWNERS
1. Reduce water demand by placing pavers over grassed areas
2. Aid landscaping by reducing erosion that occurs when grass is dry or dead
3. Eliminate standing water on the surface where mosquitos can breed
BENEFITS OF PERMEABLE PAVERS FOR BUILDERS
1. Contribute to environmental and stormwater management best practices, including LEED credits
2. Lead to cost savings by reducing or even eliminating storm water infrastructure components like pipes, detention basins and storm drains
3. Subsurface water storage creates increased surface space on which to develop roads, driveways, parking areas, public spaces, houses and other revenue-generating structures.

If your concerned with environmental problems and the movement and or the saving of water; Permeable or Pervious pavers are your best solution Pervious pavers are solid, but spacing allows water to drain between them. Pavers are placed over a bed of sand or gravel, which filters water before it percolates into the ground. Permeable pavers are extremely durable and they’re made from concrete or stone. They’re available in many different styles and configurations.
Permeable pavers also: Allow water to filter water back underground to recharge local groundwater. Permeable Pavers will help to maintain base flows in rivers and streams to protect ecosystems which will reduce the water used for landscaping.
We can create a parking lot, driveway or parking area with permeable pavers or open cell concrete blocks. The blocks will easily support vehicles and they’re open to allow water to drain through them. The spaces in the blocks or bricks are filled with gravel or sand. Grass or low ground cover will also grow in the open spaces, creating a very attractive parking lot or street, which also helps to reduce the heat that comes from conventional asphalt and concrete paving.
If some areas call for concrete we can use pervious concrete, or porous concrete pavement, which is a highly porous concrete, made from aggregate and cement, which binds the aggregate together. Pervious concrete unlike regular concrete contains very little sand, resulting in a large number of open spaces in the concrete, through which water can flow into the ground. This is becoming the most popular paving stone for parking lots large and small.
