February Update — Preparing for Rain Gardens!

Check it out.  The pervious brick steps are a few steps closer to completion.

The contractors have also begun preparing for the rain gardens.


I know it doesn’t look very pretty right now but imagine this:



  1. Wouldn’t it make a lot more sense to call the pavers permeable instead of pervious? While both words are in the dictionary and have similar meanings, premeable is used more often than the strange sounding pervious. Also, to be consistent in the original postings about the project on this site the pavers are called permeable pavers.

    permeable (ˈpɜːmɪəb ə l)
    — adj
    capable of being permeated, esp by liquids
