Permeable pavers use a combination of interlocking grids that are laid over a prepared subsurface and one of several fill materials, such as gravel or crushed limestone. Once the fill material is compacted into the grids, it creates a 100% permeable, strong, durable parking surface that is virtually maintenance free.

A parking surface made from permeable pavers requires very little ongoing maintenance, which reduces long-term costs.

Permeable Paver systems have many residential, commercial and industrial applications such as:

  • Stormwater management
  • Dust control
  • Flood mitigation
  • Driveways
  • Commercial parking lots
  • Walkways
  • Patios
  • Stormwater detention
  • and more.
