What Is Permeable Pavement
Picture Perfect Landscaping & Outdoor Living installs permeable pavers. Permeable paving is a range of sustainable materials and techniques for permeable pavements with a base and sub-base that allow the movement of storm-water through the surface. In addition to reducing runoff, this effectively traps suspended solids and filters pollutants from the water. Examples that are subject to vehicular traffic, such as roadways, gas stations, car/parking lots,paths, service or emergency access lanes, roadways and airport shoulders, and residential sidewalks and driveways.
The most important factor of permeable pavement is, it’s environmentally friendly.
Permeable Interlocking Concrete Pavers also known as (PICP) installation is installed using various sized and layers of stone or aggregate beneath that filter and direct storm-water to underground aquifers. Permeable pavers mimic the way natural land absorbs water.
Another point to be made is how far along permeable pavers have come when it comes to design. They are no longer the ugly paving stone that nobody wants installed. Permeable pavers have come a very long way not only in aesthetics, on the other hand, installation has come a long way as well. Many paver manufacturers have a very extensive permeable paver line to choose from.
We work closely with certified engineers when working with permeable installations. There are many factors that have to be executed near perfection for a proper install of a permeable paving project.
What is a good fit for a permeable paver installation you ask?
- Areas where continuous flooding occurs
- Areas where township lot coverage’s are surpassed
- Sometimes used as a basin to recycle irrigated water
