What are Permeable Pavers and Paving Stones?
Permeable Pavers let water flow between and through the stones to a well-drained gravel bed beneath
What are permeable pavers? Have you ever seen water pool on a patio or flow down a walkway? The area beside the patio or walkway turns into a muddy mess and may have problems with soil erosion, while the paved area itself becomes treacherously slippery for anyone who walks across it.
Permeable paver stones fix this problem. They let water flow between and through the stones to a well-drained gravel bed beneath. There may be a French drain below the gravel bed, if it is an area that needs even more help with drainage. You can have spray your patio down with a hose or walk outside right after a rainstorm and you won’t have to worry about puddles or slippage at all.
How do permeable pavers work?
Permeable pavers are designed to let water flow between the stones. While most paver stones are designed to line up closely with each other so that there is no space between, permeable pavers are created with a small amount of drainage space between each stone. This lets the water seep through so that it does not pool on top of the patio.
Do permeable pavers look different than regular paver stones?
Permeable pavers look just like standard paver stones. They just perform better. With most of our permeable paver designs, you cannot tell at all by looking at them that there is anything different about them.
