Pavers, whether used for driveways, sidewalks or patios, are a great-looking way to create a hardscape that will allow water to pass through. While significantly more expensive than concrete or asphalt, they also can have a more attractive appearance. Allowing our hardscapes to drain water through them also allows us to keep water from running places where it’s not wanted – streets, storm drains, and ultimately rivers.
Pavements carry sediments and runoff that can be harmful to an aquatic environment. It is better in all cases to allow water to percolate through, and be purified by, the soil. Many storm water systems are overwhelmed during rain events as infrastructure costs have not kept pace as development has intensified. Permeable pavers are one way to keep more water on the site as density increases.
Our older home presented many challenges from a functional and efficiency standpoint. Meadowlark took our needs for the space and combined them with an affordable and energy conscious solution that we couldn't be happier using.
My main concern was the length of the project and amount of disruption. they handled it by setting a clear plan up front
They boosted insulation everywhere, removed the knob-tube wiring, and tied into our old uneven, un-level house beautifully and with the style reflecting the period of the original house (with the benefits and updates of living in the 21st century).
They were (and are) a pleasure to work with. From the in-house design through construction and into warranty repairs (hey, they happen) they are always quick to respond, polite, and operate with high standards.
