Did you know that stormwater runoff is a pollutant that can make its way into our water supply and the Chesapeake Bay? Rainwater rushing across your yard or down the street picks up pollutants along the way and that water eventually makes its way into the Bay. Fortunately, there is a way to help lessen stormwater runoff. Installing a permeable paver patio reduces runoff and the pollutants that make their way into the environment. If you need a paver patio contractor in Timonium who can show you how to reduce pollution from runoff, please read on.
What are Permeable Paver Patios?
They’re kind of amazing. Permeable pavers are installed over a base of aggregate or gravel. The pavers, which come in a variety of patterns and styles, are installed with wide spacing so water can be absorbed into the base. This absorption filters any pollutants in the rainwater. Plus, it prevents runoff, which can cause erosion in areas where there is no vegetation. Instead, rain that falls seeps back into the ground, reducing the strain on storm drains.
You’ll also enjoy other benefits from a permeable paver patio. They virtually eliminate standing water, preventing mosquito breeding areas in the summer and ice accumulation in the winter. You can also have the drainage designed to recycle rainwater.
Your neighborhood will also benefit from a permeable paver patio. By filtering rainwater, you are helping to replace local groundwater supplies with non-polluted water. And you’ll be reducing the amount of water needed to maintain landscaping.
Pavers aren’t limited to patios. Use this system for a driveway or walkway, as well. The elimination of standing water and ice makes it a perfect substitute for asphalt or concrete.
