The tall window emphasizes the height of the side of this modern home. The permeable pavers allow drainage and combined with the concrete create an interesting texture in the driveway.

    This is a permeable paver by Pavestone called Uni Eco-Stone. You can see more details of this installation in the 'Material Archive' section of our website, tomhurt.com

    How was this calculated for impervious cover and was an admin waiver needed?

    6. Permeable bands. Rather than covering the driveway and carport with concrete, the architect for this home in Austin, Texas, came up with a clever solution to increase permeability and give the surface more visual interest. Alternating stripes of pale-colored poured concrete with dark-tinted concrete pavers (Uni Eco-Stone pavestones) create a graphic pattern and encourage rainwater to drain through the pavers.

    Make your home appear occupied when you are away. Leave your car in your driveway or carport, turn on your radio or TV loudly using a timer, and ask a neighbor to pick up your newspaper, mail and flyers attached to your door every day if you are on vacation.

    A combination of systems can be used, too. Pavers and concrete strips together give this driveway visual interest.
