Porous Paving is Ideal For Your Pool Surround

There’s nothing quite like relaxing near the pool when the summer comes in full force.

The juxtaposition of the pounding heat, and the cool water, can make it feel like your own, personal oasis. Of course, getting out of the pool comes with risks. Not just that you’re going to dry off and warm up, but that you have to be careful where you put your feet. One wrong step, and you might fall onto the concrete surround instead of back into the water.

If you’re looking for a way to make your surround safer, and to customize its appearance, then you might want to consider porous paving.

Porous Paving is Ideal For Your Pool Surround

Unlike traditional concrete pavers, porous paving allows water to drain through the surround, and into the ground below. This makes the paving easier to walk on, and less likely to turn under your feet just because someone decided to cannonball into the pool.

Not only that, but porous paving comes in a variety of styles and colors. This allows you to design your own surround, making it a beautiful place, as well as a safer one.


Porous paving is still paving, and you should never run when you’re hanging around the pool, but if you’re looking for a green, friendly, safe way to cut the number of falls (and puddles) around your pool, this is the best way to do it.
