This project solved many probelms at once. The homeowner came to us to have his front walkway replaced that he installed a number of years ago. Upon inspection and initial site visit, we noticed a number of potential problem areas that required attention prior to installing a paver sidewalk. Most importantly was the grade of the front yard was coming directly towards the house. Secondarily, there were gutters dumping into areas that were causing additional problems.
We were able to solve all of these problems through the use of a permeable paver. We installed a combination of Belgard Celtik block and Belgard Subterra pavers in the front walkway and landing areas. There was a large concrete pad along the front door which we were able to overlay with pavers. By using these permeable pavers, we were able to catch any water that was running towards the house and redirect via subsurface exfiltration pipes. We also took advantage of this design feature to evacuate the gutter downspout water to an area to the side of the house.
In addition to this project, the homeowner also had us install a small driveway retaining wall at the end of the driveway, which we also incorporated a drain into for reasons of maintaining the integrity of the wall. A utility patio was installed in the back yard for gardening and hobby work as well.
