Thinking about interlock? Concrete? THINK again. In other words, permeable pavement may be a better option for your driveway. The benefits of permeable pavement abound. For example, permeable pavement is a sustainable solution to the hazardous effects of stormwater run-off. PurePave uses natural granites and green technology to create a stunning, modern and, above all, permeable surface. So, how much does PurePave cost? Let’s take a look at some permeable pavement driveway cost comparisons.
