Ecological Options

Permeable Pavers – There are several styles of permeable products.

  • Traditional permeable pavers are manufactured concrete or clay pavers, which are set on a stone base & bedding layer. When set they have a wider joint which is filled with stone chips. This practice allows for fast water penetration, dramatically reducing the amount of surface runoff.
  • Reinforced / Supported Turf, is an alternative for areas that will have limited vehicular traffic, yet still need to support the occasional large vehicle such as fire trucks or for use as overflow parking.
