What are Permeable Pavers? (PICP)

Permeable interlocking concrete pavers (PICP) allow stormwater to percolate back into the soil rather than run-off into sewers and waterways.

The base and sub base of a permeable paver application are composed of different sized layers of aggregate that filter and direct storm water to the soil below or exit through pipes. Permeable pavers are used as a way to control storm water run off. A permeable paver system does this by collecting water between the pavers joints and, depending on the soil type, the water infiltrates back into the ground or is released to the nearest storm sewer or waterway.

Benefits of permeable pavers (PICP)

  • Qualifies as Best Management Practice (BMP)
  • Reduces stormwater runoff / Prevents flooding
  • Designed to meet government requirements
  • Allows rainwater to recharge ground
  • Filters stormwater before releasing
  • Rainwater harvesting options
  • Environmentally safe

Permeable pavers also help with existing drainage issues. The surface of a permeable pavers application can be made perfectly flat, with the stone base being contoured to direct the water to where it needs to go. By implementing a few design features, the permeable system can be used for rain water harvesting…

Steps & Stairs: Adding Functional Beauty to Your Landscape

Landscape steps and rockface step treads have become a trend amongst our customers. 

One of the most functional ways to work with levels of a landscape or hardscape is through the use of steps.  Simply put, steps allow for ease of access in settings that contain a slope or hilly conditions.

Besides their functional purpose, steps also help to provide definition of space and also help enhance the aesthetic quality of an outdoor environment. Any of our steps and stair systems can be built with natural stone, retaining wall block, rockface treads, or slabs as you can see below.

Start Entertaining Around an Outdoor Fire Pit

Amongst other outdoor entertainment features, a fire pit or fire place can be very entertaining… This is one option you should consider whenever your planing your outdoor living space. Fire features are not only a great focal point, but may also define the theme and mood of any occasion.

Another benefit of having an outdoor fire feature is that it allows you to entertain guests and family outdoors in the evenings, even in the Fall when there’s a little chill in the air. Entertaining around the flames of a fire easily translates into having a great time outdoors in any season. As the orange fire casts a positive glow over everything and everyone, the mood in your backyard will be more cheerful.

You can use your outdoor fire feature for entertaining by making it the focal centerpiece. The area around the fire pit can be decorated to match whatever theme you have chosen for the occasion.

A fire pit can be used for cooking kabobs and hot dogs, or roasting marshmallows for s’mores. And with a fire pit that stays lit throughout the night, you can experiment with other recipes. 

There are so many things you can do around an outside fire feature.

What is an interlocking concrete paver?

What is an interlocking concrete paver?

An interlocking concrete paver is a special type of paver. This special type of paver, also known as a segmental paver, has emerged over the last couple of decades.

 

 

When one thinks of interlocking paving stones one often gets the idea of dog bone shape stones that fit together like a jigsaw puzzle. That is not the case at all. The interlocking comes from the fact that each stone cannot move independently from its neighbor. In fact there are two important aspects of an interlocking paving stone job that keeps the pavers interlocked.
