Patios, Paths, and Driveways: Permeable Applications
February 7, 2023 @ 4:00 pm - 5:30 pm
Traditional hardscape surfaces like pavers, asphalt, stone aggregates, and field stone are materials landscapers have long used, some for centuries. Today, these products are being modified and adapted into permeable applications. In this presentation, landscape engineer Robert Roseen will discuss necessary considerations for applying permeable surfaces and installation dos and don’ts. These products and their engineering have come a long way, and they work—even in New England! Join us and conserve and support healthy water hydrology instead of treating it like a waste product.
The Green Spotlight Series is produced in partnership with the Maine Landscape and Nursery Association. MELNA members can register using the member price and will receive one recertification credit when they attend the live Zoom session.
