This overview looks at: some of the problems with hardscape surfaces the do not allow water to penetrate Low Impact Design (or LID) and how it seeks to treat this problem and some general information about how permeable pavers can accomplish this in addition to stating how they conform to The Americans with Disabilites Standards plus some pointers on how these pavers can be used in LEED projects and the areas in which they can be used for points. Low Impact Development (LID): A design strategy with the goal of "maintaining and enhancing the pre-development hydrologic regime of urban and developing watersheds." One of the primary objectives of LID is reduce water runoff by decreasing permeable surfaces.
The objective is to have a large grilling area capable of feeding a crowd. Also common are counters for preparation and portable outdoor bars refrigerators and ice makers. Youll also need cupboards to store your outdoor glassware and dishes. Much of your entertaining will be done at night and your patio should be well lit. Get creative by illuminating trees pillars stairs or other areas of your home. Try a new technique called moonlighting that creates a subtle glow on the tops of trees. Save energy and cost with the use of low voltage lighting that uses very little power.
Replacing entire sections of patio and outdoor stone surfaces is not uncommon when the ground underneath has become unstable. Once youve identified the problem area and the extent you can begin to fix tile and stone surfaces with relatively inexpensive textured primer epoxy coatings and refinishing kits. Different brushes can be used to mimic specific surfaces including a standard nap roller to produce a smooth though slightly textured finish a tile roller to produce a tiled finish and a stone roller that produces a finish resembling rough stone.
Color of the pavers is extremely important. Quite naturally you select a color or a set of colors from a catalogue. But will you feel good if the colors are not exact what you have seen in the papers? Believe me most customers complain on this issue. Mr. Baker says he ordered for natural pavers but he found them brilliant yellow when they were delivered. You must ask me how to avoid this? I would suggest visit the store if possible. Match the colors with the catalogue. And you never know whether you come across some more vibrant colors there at the store itself! Be inquisitive to ask your vendors the means of transportation. Some of your pavers might break before they enter your lawn. Do not let this happen. These are almost fragile until they are set. Thus make sure that their transportation is taken care.
