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.
We selected them because they are one of the very few builders in southeastern Michigan focusing on green custom homes. The do this, and everything else from what I can tell, very well.
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.
The design, craftsmanship and project execution were exceptional. It was wonderful to work with such responsible and client-oriented professionals. They also worked with us in many ways to keep us on budget.
Melissa was very quick to reply, knowledgeable and extremely helpful in getting us started in the right direction.
