Pervious Driveway along an Alley


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.
