Porous Paving: Why It Should Be Your Go-To

There are many options out there when it comes to your landscaping, but porous paving has several advantages that you may want to consider before making your choice. We’ve covered three of the biggest ones here:

1. CONVENIENCE

There’s no getting around the fact that we live in a busy, fast-paced world. But we have good news: your pavement doesn’t have to add to your load. StoneSet is quick and easy to install and only needs cleaning once a year. And cleaning your pavement simple enough that a normal pressure washer will do the job! Because of its porous nature, water drains right through StoneSet, which means that much of the grime that usually sticks to concrete or asphalt will wash away with the rain.

Perhaps you only have one small paving project to do and have no need to hire a contractor. Or maybe landscaping is a hobby of yours and you want to do it yourself. Whatever the reason, StoneSet now offers DIY kits allowing you to create your own masterpiece.

 

2. SAFETY

Just about anyone can agree that no matter where you are, safety is of the utmost importance. That’s why StoneSet paving is slip-resistant, flood and puddle reducing, and load-bearing. We take special care in making sure the ratios of our materials are correct every time so you won’t have to worry about loose gravel that can cause slips and falls. Not only that, but we’ve included sand in our formula to provide extra traction. Because of its permeability, StoneSet is ideal for flood-prone locations. It will hugely reduce standing water that can lead to damage and danger. Our paving is also built to last for years, even if you drive a vehicle over it several times a day.

 

3. VERSATILITY

StoneSet paving comes in many different colours. Whether you’re designing a playground or want to get creative with your driveway, we have all sorts of design options for you. In addition to a variety of colour options, we also offer a huge range of textures to choose from.

StoneSet can be installed just about anywhere, from the ground itself to overlaying concrete or asphalt. Its strength and flexibility ensure that your porous pavement won’t. In fact, porous pavement is so flexible that the same holds true for tree roots! Your StoneSet won’t crack like a sidewalk eventually would if placed next to a growing tree.

 

There are so many benefits to porous paving that we weren’t able to cover them all here. So, if you have questions or want to check out StoneSet for yourself, please contact us.
