Why choose permeable pavers for your yard? They’re a wonderful choice for adding or modifying your hardscape architecture. For reasons both aesthetic and ecological, they’re often your best choice. Here are just a few of the many benefits of permeable pavers:
Surface Water Management
The key is in the name, here – “permeable”. Permeable pavers allow water to penetrate its surface and seep down into the ground. That’s a natural and environmentally sensitive way to handle the issue of standing water, which can damage patios, walkways and the like. Any sort of sustainable installation needs to handle that runoff well, and using permeable pavers reduces runoff pollution. It’s an environmentally-friendly choice!
Because pavers allow the water to filtrate into the ground, they are cooler than comparable impervious surfaces. Asphalt or concrete on a hot summer’s day can become very hot indeed; permeable pavers will often be several degrees cooler in the summer. You can add to that effect by picking light-colored pavers; that will also help reflect sunlight and heat, reducing the ambient temperature even further.
Plain old concrete can be boring to look at – though stamped concrete options do exist. Asphalt can be high maintenance and crack – great for a driveway, but not so great for your backyard. Pavers, however, come in a wide variety of styles, colors and patterns, and their installation can take many different forms and shapes. No matter what design you have in mind for your backyard, permeable pavers can help add that little extra aesthetic spark to it.
