Permeable Pavers Driveway Installation

The driveway installation can begin and the slope is ready for the permeable pavers to be put in place.

Some heavy lifting is involved as each interlocking paver unit is unloaded from the truck and placed onto the prepared soil. The good thing about permeable pavers for our hillside is that they absorb water rundown, so no need for a drainage system.

The driveway installation is progressing and the permeable pavers are creeping up the hill. Once one stretch is completed pavers are being cut to fit and complete the edge.

A good part of the driveway installation is finished, just a few more rows to go. The top which is the parking space will be gravel only. And of course the openings of the permeable pavers will be filled with gravel too.

Intriguing! Do these pavers stand up well to plowing in the winter?

Do these pavers become slick in the winter.This could become a very large slip and slide because of the incline.

About the plowing, we'll see. And the pavers don't become anymore slick than a regular paved driveway.
