When you come across a gorgeous outdoor living space, you tend to just focus on the stunning pavement and wall structures that surround the surface. Many people are surprised to learn about what is going on behind these paved areas. Before pavement is laid, a drainage system is set up by permeable pavers that conforms to the specific scope of the property. The main goal of these drainage systems is to soak up any water that comes into contact with the pavement.
- A contractor first needs to establish a good drainage system or solid base before beginning to lay out a section of permeable pavers.
- Permeable pavers do the important work of soaking up the water on a property, especially in areas prone to flooding.
- Because of the modern push towards sustainability and getting back the waters into the drainage system, permeable pavements have been on the spotlight recently.
“Outdoor living spaces are recognized by their intricate pavers and designs, but what lies beneath is actually more important to the overall success of the design.”
