Turfstone Driveway

This is a large driveway installation north of austin paved with a permeable paver called turfstone.  The home’s location was in an area prone to heavy flash floods, and with the house positioned downhill of the driveway, the client had experienced water in their garage.  Turfstone is an excellent solution in this situation because it allows much of the water that falls on the driveway to soak in.  We filled the spaces within the paver with recycled glass, a sustainable alternative to additional concrete or crushed gravel, and created a decorative walk to the front door.  In addition, we added a drain grate that allowed additional runoff to drain downhill into their rainwater cistern.
