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.
First things first, they were not the least expensive option (and freely admitted as much from the get-go). However, at the end of the process we felt very strongly that the value was there.
They understood the "look and feel" we were after, and they showed terrific commitment (even passion) to its design and construction. Their enthusiasm for the project rivaled ours. They very successfully built us the home we envisioned.
Every Meadowlark employee who came into our house was not only a highly skilled professional but as well someone who respected the fact that we two were living and working in the same space.
Meadowlark does outstanding work, in a timely manner. If you want professional work, with no corner-cutting, and very good people who want to work for their customer, you want Meadowlark.
