Green options can be affordable and aesthetic for patios, walkways, and more.
Going green is a big deal these days, with the increasingly worrisome news about global climate concerns. There is always something we can do as individuals to lessen our environmental impact, especially when we undertake construction or paving projects. Tucker Paving understands the urgency of taking better care of the land we use, and we do what we can to encourage our clients to use environmentally friendly strategies in their projects, like using green designs for patios and walkways.
Going Green in Paving Projects
The good news is that using green options for patios and walkways can be an affordable choice. Using bricks or pavers will have a comparable cost to good quality concrete. Tucker Paving can walk you through all of your options.
- Use recycled materials. One of the best ways to reduce environmental impact is by using reclaimed materials instead of new ones. This drastically reduces the amount of energy and resources used to produce the materials for your project, plus it reduces the amount of waste sent to landfills.
- Use permeable paving solutions. Driveways, walkways, and patios can be made from gravel, spaced bricks, pavers, stone, and other materials that allow more water to seep into the soil, reducing runoff that can pollute local bodies of water.
- Use local materials. Whenever possible, opt for locally produced materials. This is another way to decrease the amount of energy used to transport materials from the production site to the construction site.
