Home and business owners are starting to use this easy-to-clean paving material that prevents pooling of water, making it a safer option for a variety of uses.
Pervious concrete can be used for driveways, sidewalks, patios, and other areas around your home or business. Even horse handlers are moving toward pervious concrete because the porous nature of the material makes handling areas less slippery. We think this is cool!

If you have landscaping around your home or business, Custom Concrete can create a layout that moves with the terrain so everything is complemented. Stamping and lines in the concrete can be designed in such a way that is visually inviting to guests and customers.
This example from bernardbros.com is a wonderful one to show how pervious concrete can be tinted with color to fit the look and feel of the surrounding area. Gone are the days of concrete that comes only in shades of gray!
