A patent-pending design utilizing Black Locust, these wood pavers are naturally rot-resistant for a lifetime of 50 years or more. Rainwater is able to pass through the paver joints and natural bio filters, for maximum water filtration. While permeating through each filter, the water quality is improved and runoff pollution is reduced. Black Locust permeable pavers help restore groundwater resources and reduce the heat island effect.
