New permeable pavers and rainwater capturing systems allow us to create some beautiful yet incredibly functional designs. Here we took an old heaving sidewalk entry along side a 3 story

Microclimate perimeter plants round out the beauty and function of the area! Permeable pavements even reduce snow and ice build up in winter
