Pervious Pavers!

Leave a comment

In addition to rain gardens and bayscapes (conservation planting) Bona Terra is now installing pervious pavers for the RiverSmart Homes program to reduce storm water run-off that overflows D.C.’s sewers and pollutes the Chesapeake Bay, by running off of impervious surfaces, like patios and driveways.

Check out our first patio freshly installed with interlocking pervious pavers! The concrete pavers have gaps between them and layers of gravel below them, serving as a self-draining system, allowing water to seep back into the ground beneath.
