Permeable Pavers

Permeable pavers are of three types such as grass permeable pavers, interlocking concrete permeable pavers, and porous concrete permeable pavers. Grass permeable pavers have hollow centers which enable water to seep through and reach the soil. IC permeable pavers consist of voids for soil and vegetation which allows the passage of water into the soil. PC permeable pavers feature pores for channelizing water.

Pavers come in many sizes and shapes such as rectangular, square, wide, narrow, long and short. Diverse varieties of color combinations are also available and you can choose the blends of red-brown-charcoal or cream-brown-charcoal, Tuscan color combination, desert ash color and much more. The kind of paver to choose depends upon the type of look that the homeowner wants for the landscape of his or her house.
