How Pavers Can Conserve Water

Permeation is the process through the earth gets the water to the surface below. The water can be through rain, flood, snowfall, etc. The level of groundwater is dependable on the permeation. The wells and reservoirs are all depending on this process. Natural earth surface is a good media of water permeation or induction.

Concrete Sheet Vs Pavers

Nowadays the land is covered with a sheet of concrete especially in the cities so called as ‘concrete jungle.' There is a good remedy to restore the water permeation down to the interior of the earth without losing the aesthetics. That is permeable brick paving in the patios, walkways, garden, and driveways. These porous bricks and the gap between the bricks allow the water to percolate into the earth’s surface. This is the best way to save the precious water. Without this, the water would just go to the drains and further down to the oceans or rivers without recharging the groundwater potential.

Going Green

Using permeable or porous brick pavement instead of old concrete, we are getting one step towards making the earth green. The recent concept of green buildings can be complemented with the usage of pavements of this beautiful bricks. Interlocking bricks are also available making non-displacement of the laying which is termed as "Green Home Improvement."

Cost Effective

Concrete is costly in production cost and energy consumption wise. Instead of concrete or such costly materials, the patios, driveways, roads, and foundations for houses can be done with bricks. The porosity allows the water to seep into the earth and the water stagnation due to concreting can be avoided.


Porous pavement bricks are available in stunning designs and colors as well. The conservation of water is the need of the hour. Rainwater harvesting from the rooftop is becoming popular. The deep-rooted trees are also benefitted by recharged waters.
