Permeable Interlocking Concrete Pavers, or Permeable Pavers, provide a solid ground surface, strong enough to take heavy loads, like large vehicles, while allowing water to filter through the surface and reach the underlying soils. In other words, a permeable paver system is a self-draining system. The voids created by the joints between pavers allow water to drain through and into the soil beneath.
Permeable pavers can help preserve our environment by protecting the quality of our water supplies. The natural infiltration of rainwater through the voids in between the pavers helps to recharge the groundwater. This also reduces the amount of stormwater runoff entering our natural waterways, and the contaminants and pollutants carried with it. Less stormwater runoff means less flooding of streams and riverbeds and a reduction in the rate of the erosion of riverbanks and streambeds. Guidelines and regulations are being created every day that will make permeable pavers a standard in the paving and green industries. Not only are Permeable Pavers smart green design, Aurora Landscape Design consistently uses them to add elegance and longevity to your paving project.
