Water stagnation around a property can cause many problems. In the absence of proper drainage, rainwater will simply flow away before it can be put to good use. When water is allowed to collect in any area, it ends up carving out holes in the ground.
If your clients are looking for a solution, offer them a permanent fix with porous paving from StoneSet Permeable Paving.
1. When water damages the grounds
A common problem on many properties, rainwater has a tendency to dig out holes anywhere that it is allowed to collect. For instance, it will break up surfaces under eaves and along the edges of covered carports, and create wear patterns in soil, pushing the topsoil downhill. Porous paving softens the blows of rain and prevents puddles from eating away at surfaces. You can also use it as ground covering around buildings.
2. When drainage systems show signs of strain
Rainstorms can release large amounts of water into drainage systems; the water can also take debris and flotsam from surfaces into the drains. Rain coming off driveways and sidewalks can flood streets, overwhelm sewer and stormwater systems, and turn ditches into lakes. Porous paving disperses the water from storms by letting it into the ground and also keeps debris in place, instead of sending it down overworked drains. The reduced load will prolong the life of drains.
3. When the cost of watering a property is too high
The first casualty of water shortage is the garden and landscaping. However, installing a porous pavement will ensure the rain percolates into the ground, generously recharging the water table so that the client has sufficient water to maintain their lawns and garden. Additionally, groundwater recharging will also reduce the amount of watering required by plants, benefitting the property owner.
