  • ENVIRONMENTALLY FRIENDLY SYSTEMS

    Permeable systems provide an environmentally friendly way to eliminate drainage problems common with asphalt or concrete surfaces.

    Pervious surfaces allow water and pollutants to drain through to the soil below, where gravel, sand, and natural bacteria help to trap and break down the pollutants naturally. Making our oceans, lakes, rivers, and streams cleaner.

    Many of the permeable paving options are made from recycled materials such as plastics and tires.

    Permeable pavers allow water to drain through to the sub-surface naturally replenishing local water systems without the need for costly and environmentally damaging construction

  • BUILDING CODE COMPLIANT

    More and more cities around the United States are limiting the use of nonporous materials such as concrete and asphalt on residential and commercial properties.

    Installing pervious systems eliminates or reduces the need for costly construction of detention and retention ponds on your property. Using permeable systems allows builders to utilize their construction area effectively.

    Proper permeable installations will last longer than traditionally paved hardscapes reducing the cost of maintenance and repours.

    Reduces or eliminates the need to rebuild storm or increase the size of existing storm sewer systems for developments.

    Water can be captured with underground systems and reused for other purposes like irrigation and maintenance.

  • GREAT FOR TRAILS

    Permeable paving is ADA compliant. Permeable systems make trails, parks, and gardens accessible for all. Installing a permeable surface can remove walking hazards for the vision-impaired and those persons in wheelchairs or needing walking aids. Surface temperatures are often cooler with pervious pavers than traditional nonporous hardscapes.

CREATIVE SOLUTIONS

We craft our solutions to suit our clients’ preferences while prioritizing sustainability. Permeable Systems are great for:

  • Trails
  • Hardscaping
  • Driveways
  • Patios
  • Code Compliance
  • Replacing DG
  • Pool Decks
  • Parking Lots
  • PASSIVE WATER FILTRATION

    Pervious pavement systems provide stormwater management. Water drains through the pavement to a cleansing layer of gravel. The gravel or stone acts as a natural filter, clearing the water of pollutants. The EPA Storm Water Phase II regulations provide

    programs and practices to help control the number of contaminants in our waterways. Traditional concrete and asphalt hardscapes collect oil, anti-freeze, and other automobile fluids that can be washed into streams, lakes, and oceans when it rains.

    These contaminants are trapped within the permeable system and at the location of any geotextile fabric separating the pavement from the subbase or subgrade support. Hydrocarbons, such as oils, are a food source for many naturally occurring bacteria and fungi. The microorganisms feed on the oil and biodegrade it into simpler chemical components that are released into the atmosphere. Close to 99 percent of oils introduced into pervious pavements are trapped and biodegraded.

  • REDUCES FLOODING

    Permeable paving prevents flooding by keeping the rainwater on the property instead of rushing into our street. When it rains, permeable paving allows stormwater to seep into the void spaces in the subsurfaces where water can flow slowly or be reused on the property.
