Green Driveways
Gaining in popularity are permeable driveways, pervious rather than impervious to the elements, allowing rain water to soak through the driveway into the soil. These green driveways may decrease flooding, recharge groundwater, filter out pollutants and keep drinking water healthy.

A layer of gravel is placed on top of the soil excavated at least three inches below the paving surface, and an overflow route is created for storm runoff directing water to street drains, gardens and landscaping. Materials used to create a green driveway are: 1) Porous Asphalt or Cement; 2) Permeable Paver blocks, bricks or flagstone for driveway, sidewalk and patio use; 3) Open-Celled Grids of recycled Plastic Pavers with vegetation or gravel fill.
