Environmental Pavers or Permeable Pavers from Nicolock Paving Stones showcase products designed to let water percolate through them when it rains. In other words, water goes back into the soil and down into the aquifer rather than draining off into storm sewers or waterways, such as ponds, lakes, rivers, and bays. Permeable paving stones may also reduce flooding and pooling problems in local areas because rainwater will go into the soil rather than pooling in places where you don’t want it to go. Just because these special pavers are eco-friendly doesn’t mean you have to skimp on style or performance. You will find eco-friendly paving stones suitable for driveways, patios, and parking areas as well as service roads, fire lanes, and stabilizing embankments along lakes, rivers, and streams.
