To the untrained eye right now, our front walk looks like a giant slip n slide.

(Namely to my untrained eye. And I’m not recommending the front walk for its slip n slide properties.)

So what are we really doing at the Nature Center this week?

Meet our new permeable pave. Installed by Eggleston Concrete, the front walk will now work to soak up some water and help it find a way down into the ground instead of running right off into the road (and ultimately into Indian Creek).


Over a layer of rock, the busy-as-bees (and almost as numerous) workers, laid down a rough, porous concrete. (In this picture you can see the permeable pave meeting up with another run-off resistant surface: our grass pave.)

Watch for an update on what the finished product will look like – and who gets to walk on it first!
