Mariana Pickering (Emu Architects) added this to Landscaping Tricks to Manage Stormwater Runoff
Patios and DecksPavements can take up twice as much area as our houses and are a main culprit in all kinds of environmental problems, including polluted runoff, depleted groundwater, high temperatures, unnecessary erosion and stunted tree growth. This beautiful patio has just enough stone to provide a clean, modern edge, but a percentage of it is permeable because the center is filled with gravel.

Although the ability of water to flow is limited by the border, the center is finished with gravel for increased permeability.

This is a neat combination of materials. It breaks up the space yet keeps it orderly. Also the use of less expensive gravel and plantings and a minimum of the more expensive stone and marble keeps the cost down. Elegant.
