Storm Water Lab: Porous Pave vs. AsphaltPosted on November 9, 2018
In a world of aslphalt and concrete...not all hardsape is created equal!
Water is a PRECIOUS resource. We are fortunate in the Northeast to have an abudnace of fresh water. However, traditional city storm water management systems pipe away storm water instead of allowing it to infiltrate into the aquifers. This Porous Pave system replaced four layers of asphalt driveway at this Rye residence, and now allows for 100% storm water infiltration. (Asphalt is 0% permeable, by contrast).
Please enjoy this video highlighint our install of Pourous Pave, as well as the severe storm event clip at the end, which powerfully juxtaposes Asphalt with Porous Pave side-by-side.
Storms are becoming more frequent and severe. After every rain event, we recieve calls describing ponding lawns, flooded basements, and standing water in all areas of the landscape...we can do so much better! Whether its a custom permeable patio, a rain water harvesting system, or a beautiful native rain garden, we can design your sustainable storm water system.
