Considering a more Earth-friendly driveway?
If you are interested in discussing how you can make your driveway earth-friendly don’t hesitate to ask! We have been incorporating these strategies for over 20 years and are well-versed in what approach is most suitable for your property, budget and maintenance considerations. You don't have to go overboard with expense to lighten your impact, and we'll teach you how with a variety of possible techniques: permeable and porous pavements, reinforced grid structures, decreasing pavement areas, rain storage cisterns or chambers, channel drains that reroute water combined with native vegetative planting areas as bioswales or raingardens – so many choices and we’re thrilled to discuss what is the best fit for you!
We have the equipment, crew and most importantly, the knowledge and expertise to get things done right.
Our crews manage all aspects of construction: tear outs, excavation, basing, grading, curbing and paving. Our paving consultants will determine what makes the most sense for your project after understanding your objectives and will provide you with sensible options. And the installation crews, with years of experience, will impress you with their professionalism and abilities. Contact us today!
6 Acres of Roadway Reconstruction
WORK: Reclaiming, milling, concrete stormwater pipe and catch basin repair, grading and asphalt The cemetery had been spending money every year on costly spot repairs. We put together a pavement rehabilitation schedule that provided a finished look to the property with significant cost-savings.
5 Acre Parking Lot Reconstruction
WORK: Reclaiming, milling, geotextiles, curb and gutter repair, concrete truck pads, irrigation repair, asphalt and striping Their business operates 24 hours a day, 7 days and week; therefore, it was important for our pavement reconstruction work to cause the least amount of disruption. We developed a plan to phase the work around the site’s busiest times and areas.
Low-Impact Development and Parking Lots
Rethinking The Parking Lot
As a company that designs and installs both paving and ecological landscaping projects, we make use of conventional methods and, whenever possible, alternative techniques that mitigate stormwater runoff. We have a passion for protecting one of our greatest resources, water, and thoughtful construction is a big part of this goal.
21 Town Home Complex
WORK: Design, reclaiming, excavating, grading, curbing, asphalt, rain gardens, bioswale, pre-treatment forebays, permeable pavers and native plantings The association was initially planning on simply repaving their roadways and driveways, but then decided it was the best time to consider other, more earth-friendly, options. Now the property is much greener - both visually, with thousands of new plants, and environmentally. They have created a community gathering space while simultaneously saving thousands of dollars annually on their city stormwater fees.
100 Car Office Parking Lot
WORK: Design, reclaiming, excavating, grading, concrete stormwater planters, asphalt, and native plantings Altering the grades of the parking lot for stormwater treatment provides a unique look to what had been another big, expansive lot of asphalt. These four planters are positioned along the center of the lot to receive all the parking lot runoff. The water then filters through well-draining soils and native plants before overflowing into a suspended draintile that is connected to the city catch basin.
