More and more, we are seeing these little infiltration strips of driveways along the rear access alleys of homes and buildings here in Southern California. Here is the backside of a home in Santa Monica on 10th street. This is about 250 sq ft of classic pervious concrete, 6 inches thick, suitable for car and light truck traffic.
As you can see the light pavement is a lovely foil for the dark wall and angular accents. The pervious concrete's finish falls in line with the modern aesthetic of this home.
