A popular trend over the last few years is for families to create new Christmas traditions that go above and beyond the typical acts of gift giving.

There’s something special about the rain. The gentle hush as it falls, the way everything seems to shrink down, and even that relaxing smell of flowing water.

And there are puddles… puddles which can lead to water damage, safety hazards, and which can linger long after the skies have cleared.

How does a homeowner know when it’s time to update the landscaping around their home?

However, there is another benefit that comes with investing in porous paving.
