The Source for Permeable Paver Services in Toronto
Permeable pavers are an excellent addition to almost any property’s landscape because they provide a hard surface for walking or for vehicles while still allowing for the drainage of storm water directly into the ground. Standard paved surfaces give this runoff nowhere else to go but directly into our community’s storm drain system, which is quickly becoming overwhelmed due to the increase in paved surfaces over the years. There are usually a couple of methods to create these permeable paved surfaces, the first of which involves utilizing more traditional materials, but allowing for open space between the actual pavers. These open spaces are usually filled with soil, grass, or gravel in order to allow the water to drain into the soil below. The second method is to use pavers made of more porous materials, like permeable concrete. These surfaces don’t need open spaces because the materials themselves allow water to filter down through them and into the soil. Both of these options are great ways to reduce the amount of storm water that needs to be managed by your storm drain system.
Permeable Paver Driveways & Sidewalks
Driveways, sidewalks, and patios are all great areas to make use of permeable pavers. Driveways in particular are an excellent option for this type of construction as this large surface is usually sloped down almost directly to a storm water drain, and a driveway made of permeable pavers help to significantly reduce the amount of water run off that drain system will need to deal with.
