Houzz. Spring 2012.  By Cassy Aoyagi:  Permeable hardscapes help reduce a property’s carbon footprint in numerous ways. They replenish the groundwater table with filtered water, reduce runoff and its impact on city infrastructure, mitigate heat island effect … and they are just so lovely!

There is such a wonderfully wide array of permeable materials, and in future ideabooks I’ll illustrate how beautiful, architecturally appropriate looks can be created with each of them. This one covers how to mix rock or gravel with more substantial pavers.
