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.

Edgestone : A Decorative Landscape Border
Hardscape products are used for all kinds of landscape installations such as paver patios, walkways, and retaining walls. However, most manufacturers also create a product known as “Edgestone” to compliment these area. They may also be used to define your landscaping bed edges. These manufactured concrete products come in a range of shapes, textures, and color blends that can easily complement the colors of an existing home or building they surround.
Edgestone is very functional as it helps to contain mulch or stone in landscaping beds, keeping it from washing or falling out onto hard surfaces or lawn areas. One of the great benefits of this beautiful landscape addition is its ease of installation. Approximately 50% of the stone is buried in a channel along the bed and then back-filled. Because of their irregular shape, installation is easier than installing other edging products. This also allows the edgestones to be placed around curves very easily and also to gradually lower as the ground slopes to other areas. Digging the trench for installation can be done with a trench machine or even a shovel if need be, then back-filled.
Another nice feature of edgestone is that it can be removed and replaced as needed. If there is construction, or settling replacement is as easy as digging a small trench and re-installing the units.
