Permeable Driveway Day 3Posted on August 5th, 2015 by John Foegley
Unilock Eco Priora was selected for this permeable pavement driveway. It is larger than standard pavers and has ridges which create uniform gaps between the bricks so water can percolate thru very rapidly. The drive was designed to minimize cuts and included a tan herring bone pattern field which featured a brown cross and brown soldier course border.
Brick installation began on day three. String lines were used to make sure our drive was square to the garage door apron and that the cross was as straight as possible. Pre-staging the brick allowed us to avoid walking on the bedding chips and minimized the distance they had to be carried, so the installation went very smoothly.
The skids of Eco Priora bricks included numerous half bricks so we didn’t need to make cuts where the herring bone field met the cross and soldier courses. Work completed on day three also included base installation for a small 4’wide section near the road which is used to park the trash can.
