  1. The benefits of installing a permeable driveway

    Leave a Comment

    At Gary Cooper Paving we undertake a vast number of driveways each and every year. A driveway at the front of a home can be a real feature piece, as well as a practical space for parking vehicles. Nowadays people are becoming more and more aware of the products available and over the past few years Gary Cooper Paving are regularly asked for permeable paving.
    There are a number of benefits to permeable paving and  we thought we’d share a few of these with you.
    Permeable paving is proven to be a highly effective way of minimizing surface water run-off by allowing water to seep through, using natural filtration to take excess water away.
    By allowing excess water to make its way into the natural soil or ground, permeable paving is a sustainable choice for modern homes whilst giving you all the aesthetic options you need to create a beautiful driveway.
    Key benefits
    During the laying process, tiny voids are created to allow water to pass through. This reduces the need for drainage channels.
    By allowing rainwater to filter through the paving and into the ground a natural filtration takes place as it passes through the sub-base of the paving. This removes pollutants and impurities from the water, which can help prevent water pollution.
    Preventing floods
    Surface water run-off and the capacity of old drainage is a contributing factor to flooding. Permeable paving can be a preventative measure for flash flooding by absorbing water rather than directing it to drainage, or allowing it to build up on top of the surface.
    These are just a handful of benefits to installing permeable paving. There are many more environmental and aesthetic advantages so please get in touch on 01953 607289 if you have any questions about the materials or installation process.
