Front gardens are being paved over at an alarming rate, which exacerbates flooding. As soil is like a sponge and soaks up water, impermeable surfaces leave it nowhere to go.
The simple solution - you can help by being mindful of the types of hard surfaces you put in your garden.
Let me introduce you to Eccogravel, a gravel stabilisation system which lets the water drain through. I use it in my designs all the time. It’s permeable whilst being stable enough to drive over. It's fully accessible... you can even walk on it in heels. Perfect for driveways!
... and even more good news, Eccogravel contributes to the circular economy. It's made of recycled materials and can be recycled again at the end of it's use. Keeping more waste out of landfills... superb!
