The biggest difference between permeable paving and standard paving is the preparation work and the types of aggregate used. With permeable paving, the depth of your driveway needs to lowered significantly to allow a new permeable base. The base should be made up of Type 3 hardcore or similar to allow water to flood through fast and easily.

The paving itself is laid on a grit base instead of a sand and the final jointing of the paving is done with a fine dust grit instead of kiln dried sand. Click here to learn more about our block paving services in Somerset.
