Top 5 Benefits of Permeable Paving for Your
Driveway
2
Permeable Pavers
  • Can you make your driveway more eco-friendly?
    With permeable pavers, yes, you can.
  • Before installing permeable pavers on your
    driveway, its important to understand how they
    differ from regular paving.  
  • In a regular paving, water hitting the surface
    goes to the storm drain directly. In permeable
    pavers, on the other hand, water is absorbed
    between the gaps.

  • Heres how it works.

4
How Permeable Pavers are Installed
  • The first step is to have your old driveway is
    removed. Your contractor should take care of
    this. After that, the subsoil is compacted. A
    heavy fabric is then laid on top of the subsoil
    and afterwards covered with two layers of rock.
  • The heavy fabric called the geotextile prevents
    the rocks from being carried down into the soil.
    The rock layers, meanwhile, are compacted
    thoroughly. And then, on top of that, a layer of
    pea gravel is spread and leveled out. After
    which, the stones are set.
  • Finally, another layer of pea gravel is swept
    between the gaps of the stones. And youre ready
    to test your new driveway paving!

  • Benefits of Permeable Paving System

6
Water-efficient
  • Permeable pavers for your hardscapes doesnt
    require water to keep them looking fantastic.
  • This system also helps keep surrounding areas
    cool as water goes straight to the soil below.
  • Irrigation demand to support nearby soil and
    plant life is hence minimized.

7
Low-maintenance
  • A permeable paving system can last you a lifetime
    when maintained properly.
  • Cleaning is simple you wouldnt have to dedicate
    your entire Saturday mornings for it.
  • You also wouldnt have to hire someone. All you
    need to do is sweep or vacuum as needed or at
    least three to four times a year to ensure that
    no debris is stuck between the gaps.

8
Reduces Water Run-off
  • Permeable pavers are also referred to as
    stormwater management system. In a typical
    concrete usually used in driveways, youll notice
    that the water is delivered straight to the
    drain, and along with it, more often than not,
    are piles of trash or contaminates.
  • These contaminates can potentially reach lakes or
    rivers. With permeable pavers, stormwater is
    filtered first to remove pollutants before being
    absorbed back to earth.
  • Flooding is also prevented because the entire
    paving, and not just the drainage area, works to
    take in water falling on the surface.

9
 Durable
  • For homeowners who are looking for longevity,
    permeable pavers offer a great deal.
  • This system eventually pays for itself. Its
    designed to handle heavy weight, which makes it
    ideal for high-traffic areas such as parking
    spaces and walkways.
  • Unlike concrete, it wouldnt sag or shift.

10
Looks Terrific
  • Permeable pavers come in various colors you can
    choose from to suit your homes architectural
    theme.
  • Your driveway wouldnt only look good, you also
    are able to help the environment.
  • The drain area doesnt have to work as hard, and
    water hitting the paving surface isnt wasted.

11
Check These Out!
  • If youre rethinking your driveway, do consider
    permeable pavers. The cost of installing a
    permeable paving system is higher than the
    conventional cement paving, but youd definitely
    get more from your investment in the years to
    come.
