Top 5 Permeable Driveways

Driveways and other parking areas are typically paved with asphalt or concrete, and are not only unattractive, but detrimental to the environment.

When it rains, debris and pollutants flow off these impervious surfaces into our waterways, many times via the sewer system, which contributes to stormwater runoff pollution.

Paved parking areas also prevent rainwater from infiltrating into the ground beneath where it can help recharge aquifers.

Here are my tips if you’re putting in a new driveway or replacing an old degraded one:

  1. Driveway garden with paved tracks for only the tires so a garden can grow in between (like the one in this design)!
  2. Recycled plastic grid systems, like Grass Pave 2, filled with grass, ground cover or pea gravel
  3. Concrete grid paving units (like those highlighted in another blogger’s post)
  4. Interlocking pavers (like the ECO-TEK™ Permeable Paving System pictured here)
  5. Gravel
