What are the Benefits of Permeable Pavers?

With the warmer weather coming our way, it’s no surprise that many of us are looking for new options for our landscaping. With the abundance of rain that falls in the Middle Tennessee area, there are plenty of reasons to ensure that you have ways to improve the drainage on your property. One of the most popular options is permeable pavers, a system that mimics many of the best properties of hardscaping materials while still allowing moisture to soak naturally into the ground. Here are a few of the reasons permeable pavers are a great bet for beautiful landscaping. 

Permeable Pavers Help Prevent Water Runoff

People have been setting stones into a sand base for thousands of years to build roads and create fascinating landscape designs. Permeable pavers really shine by preventing water runoff and creating a more sustainable option for your landscaping. 

It’s Easy to Install Permeable Pavers

Mixing concrete and having it poured can be expensive and time-consuming. With permeable paver options, you can have a solid and secure structure for walking or driving without the hassle and costs associated with pouring concrete or other solid alternatives. These pavers are lightweight and can easily be installed by an individual or a few helpers. Plus, they are small enough to fit around most objects and can be easily broken or scored to resize as needed. 

Permeable Pavers are a Great Temporary Parking Solution

Not sure you want to create a long-term parking area? Considering using permeable pavers without the fill materials to keep vehicles from sinking into — and tearing up! — your lawn. These grids are an exceptional way to create short-term parking without the big problems that can occur from offering parking in a grassy area after a rainstorm.

HOW DO PERMEABLE PAVING SYSTEMS WORK?

How Do Permeable Paving Systems Work?

If you have an area that is perfectly flat and doesn’t drain well, traditional paving materials may not be your best choice due to the tendency towards pooling and collecting rainwater on the surface. Fortunately, permeable pavers are an option that allows you to create a finished look and feel to your space, while still allowing water to seep back into the ground instead of creating puddles on your asphalt or compacted gravel. 

What Are Permeable Pavers?

There is a range of patio pavers that are considered permeable, which essentially means that the pavers are porous or contain space between the grids to allow water through the paving system. Components such as gravel or grass are often utilized to mimic the effect of water naturally has on the ground, allowing drainage at a defined rate that helps maintain the structure of the pavers while reducing the possibility of water gathering in a specific location. The base materials could be anything from plastic grid pavers, concrete or asphalt pavers to concrete grids.

Benefits of Permeable Pavers

Paver installation is crucial, as one of the key benefits of permeable pavers is their durability and ability for water to filter through to the ground beneath. With proper installationpermeable pavers provide an exceptional base that is both environmentally responsible and sustainable — reducing the overflow caused by flash flooding and storms that are characteristic of Middle TN. Permeable pavers that utilize grass between the patio pavers create a unique aesthetic that also reduces the reliance on hardscape materials and may even help create a cooling effect on the surrounding areas by reducing the area of heat-capturing asphalt.  Whether you’re in the market for patio paver installation support or simply need advice on landscaping in Nashville, the professionals at Smart Scapes, LLC have decades of experience with individuals and businesses in the Middle Tennessee area.
