Our clients wanted an eco-friendly driveway to manage stormwater but also to function as a patio/entertaining space. Drainage pipe was installed to direct water into a swale. Permeable eco-pavers and chip stone-filled gaps and was then bordered by grey brick to tie into the existing stone and grey accented architecture. We worked with a local subcontractor to pour asphalt surrounding the parking pad. The driveway is illuminated with LED lighting casting through the trees. What was once a sunken driveway is now a safe and beautiful outdoor space and driveway that sustainably directs stormwater away from the street to help keep our Madison lakes clean.
