Permeable Pavement Ideas Los Angeles

The Many Looks of Permeable Pavement


For many homeowners the fear is that while permeable pavement is a product with benefits every which way, it won’t mesh with the home. What they don’t understand is that permeable pavement owns an immense variety of both natural, and unexpected looks.


First, let’s go over the benefits of permeable pavement.


Permeable concrete helps mitigate,


  • Erosion
  • 60% of river water pollution
  • Seepage after intense rainfall
  • The costly weight that dirty water puts on a city’s filtration system


All while being nearly the same cost as an asphalt installation. So, in what ways does permeable pavement match any home?


Contemporary Permeable Pavement






Permeable pavement sits on a ‘I couldn’t tell’ factor well with these contemporary looks. The only thing that the product really needs is a little space between each brick, which is already a valued look among homeowners. With these contemporary paving ideas, no one will know what’s really going under the hood of the patio or the driveway.


Natural Permeable Pavement







Permeable Pavement installation in Los Angeles can be done in such a seamless way that it integrates the aggregate and pavers into the same design. Sometimes a design chooses to forgo highlighting the aggregate itself, but melds with the space in another way - such as having grass peer through, soil surface. Permeable pavement is made to replicate the way that natural soil filters the bad out of water. With a goal this expansive, it’s easy to see why permeable pavement ideas come in such a severe variety.


Custom Permeable Pavement






The true merit of a home design product is in how homeowners use it. Permeable concrete installation is a malleable, creative endeavor that with the help of a landscaping architect in Los Angeles, can arise as something truly unique.
