The Wiese Residence permeable paver project sprung from a collaboration of the homeowner with the Canadian company HydroPaver which allows water to flow directly through the paver, as opposed to the joints as a traditional application may be completed. The Ambler EAC got involved through a grant for the Ambler Greener Initiative which awards practices in managing storm water in the borough. The base features two types of clean stone especially the 3/8" clean with no fines which allows water to percolate through the base. The edge of the patio is held by a concrete footing with grey Belgian block set in. Pre-Cast concrete landscape steps with rock face texture step up on landings to allow ease of wheelchair access as needed as opposed to straight flight of steps. Those pavers on the walkway are also similar permeable pavers.
