More than just a paver.

With Belgard, you never have to choose between pretty and practical. Innovative products like our Permeable Pavers offer the designed outdoor space you want, with the added benefit of water management.

Permeable interlocking concrete pavers (PICP) are installed with layers of varying-sized stone or aggregate underneath, that filter and direct stormwater to underground aquifers. Permeable paving mimics the way natural land absorbs water. Which means any rain that falls on your patio, walkway or driveway seeps back into the ground or the nearest storm drain.

The surface of Permeable pavers can be made perfectly flat, with the stone reservoir being contoured to direct water wherever it needs to go. In fact, with a few added design features, the system can be used for water harvesting, with water being usable for irrigation or washing your car.
