When you look at your home, do you see little imaginary price tags hanging over certain parts of it? Energy Star appliances, those will add value. Efficient windows, those increase the asking price. Old insulation… hmmm, better redo that before I go on the market. If you’re making home upgrades with an eye on a return on your investment, there is something else you should consider.
Wouldn’t your clients love to be the envy of the neighbourhood with a yard that looks professionally landscaped but didn’t cost a fortune?
Customers who are passionate about promoting sustainability should be very interested in porous paving for a number of reasons. Porous paving creates a surface that is accessible by water, thus enabling water to move naturally. As such, problems involving flooding are less likely to occur.
Porous paving has a lot of green credentials, and that’s part of why it’s becoming more common. Since the pavement lacks traditional fillers, there are gaps that allow water to drain naturally, which prevents puddling and other problems on the surface, and helps maintain the water table below the surface. Porous paving can also forego traditional gutters and other drainage accouterments, as well, since the water will be draining through the pavement rather than sliding down slope.
Porous paving is exactly what it sounds like: pavement that is porous. But how can you use pavement to help the environment?

Community gardens provide a place for a community’s most talented gardeners to grow fruit and vegetables for the residents of cities, towns, and small remote populations. Community gardens generally rent raised garden beds or larger plots, and sometimes they even rent large containers or small flower pots within the garden for those with various levels of gardening enthusiasm or ability.
Porous pavement is popular for large public spaces because of its high porosity – water is not allowed to run off the sides and instead can pass right through the pavement itself.
Driveways are the first thing someone sees as they arrive at a house, and it’s usually one of the first images that can make or break the curb appeal of a home.
