Permeable Paving: A Green Solution
Published on October 11, 2022

With climate change a major concern, it’s important that we all do our part in impacting climate change. Permeable paving offers a green solution to the industry.

From enabling grass to grow in between your driveway paving, to eliminating stormwater runoff that brings toxic pollutants into sewers. Permeable paving provides an endless amount of environmental benefits for the soil, trees, and grass without compromising on style.

Green Permeable Driveways For A Greener City

How can you start contributing to a greener city? By installing a green permeable driveway. Permeable paving provides wet weather management which reduces the total volume of water runoff from impervious surfaces. 

Protecting The Environment and Your Driveway

Did you know Permeable paving creates a sustainable driveway by allowing for the natural flow of water into the ground and soil? Permeable paving is made of recycled plastic which is more durable and not prone to chipping. Investing in permeable paving for your driveway is also an investment in the environment. 

The Dangers of Water Runoff

Water runoff is one of the most identified sources of damage to the environment. Improperly disposed water containing pollutants runoff into surrounding large bodies of water including lakes and streams. This can also lead to flooding and toxic bodies of water that are extremely harmful and unsafe for fish and humans to enter. 

Permeable paving, known for a porous surface, comes in a variety of pavement options and types, that can be installed on urban surfaces to reduce the harmful damages that impermeable paving options such as concrete and asphalt cause to the environment. Permeable pavings, porous surface, is designed by an installed base that acts as a reservoir. This reservoir stores up rainfall and precipitation that accumulates on your driveway over time, and slowly deposits that water back into the soil. 

Permeable Pavings Porous Surface 

Improving water quality while safely depositing water back into the environment, permeable paving uses an interlocking grid system to create the pores that act as a filter between your pavements surface, the underlying reservoir then back into the soil. You can install permeable paving, knowing that it is one of the safest ways to ensure you are contributing to the sustainability of the environment, on your sidewalk, driveway, or parking lot.
