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…
Unwind By a Relaxing Waterscape
Water features such as a pond, fountain, or waterfall are almost always the first thing that catches the attention of your guests.
That’s why these are one of the most popular ideas for landscaping today! Water is naturally very relaxing, so it makes sense that people would want to have water in their gardens.
Waterfalls are especially desirable because you not only get the look of a garden pond, but also the serenity of the sound of splashing water.
Garden fountains can make a nice addition to your landscaping if you don’t have room for a full pond or a winding waterfall and stream.

Tree Clean Up After Winter Snow & Ice Storms
Do you have winter storm damage from snow & ice? Ryan’s Landscaping is here to help.
During winter storms ice and snow tend to accumulate in trees, which can cause the top portion of trees to snap, branches to fall on homes, cars, etc., and in some instances, the whole tree may fall. When this happens, we may be able to care for the tree in such a way as to save it, or it may need to be removed altogether.
