How Permeable Pavers Benefit the Environment

Honeysuckle Nursery Permeable Pavers Environment

Permeable pavers provide several benefits to the environment that concrete pavers don’t.

When you’re planning the landscape design for your home, you’ll probably need to think about walkways, and possibly your driveway. One of the best options for this application is permeable pavers. The reason for this is that they provide several benefits to the homeowner, they look amazing, and they also provide several benefits to the environment.

Stormwater Runoff

Like a retaining wall, permeable pavers are actually an excellent option for stormwater management. Their porous design allows water to move through the pavers, preventing flooding through more even water distribution. This is great for maintaining a healthy landscape while avoiding damage to your property and foundation. Flooding is detrimental to the ground soil, and it has the potential to harm wildlife. It can also cause your property to shift and sink.

Water Filtration

Permeable pavers have an aggregate base layer that stormwater passes through right before it enters the ground soil. This is great for the environment because it actually removes pollutants from the water before those pollutants can be distributed into the soil where they could cause potential damage to the landscape or harm wildlife looking for a drink. In other words, stormwater gets filtered by your landscape pavers. How cool is that?

Recycling Potential

If you’re a homeowner looking to have permeable pavers installed to replace an existing walkway or driveway, you can actually recycle the concrete from your previous installation in order to make the permeable pavers for your home. This is yet another win for the environment when it comes to permeable pavers because this process produces significantly less waste and allows you to avoid throwing out your old concrete.

Exceptional Durability

The superior durability of permeable pavers isn’t just good for the environment, it’s also good for your wallet. These pavers have a mesh design that leads to fewer cracks and breaks. Due to this, permeable pavers require less maintenance and fewer replacements. This means fewer of them need to be manufactured and you don’t need to keep buying more—it’s a win-win!
