Driveway Drainage - Bob Vila Radio - Bob Vila's Blogs
Bob's Tip of the Day: Your driveway can either absorb water or shed it. Some driveway materials, like brick and pavers, are permeable because the little spaces between them allow water back into the ground where it belongs. A driveway that’s covered in a nonporous material like concrete or asphalt needs to be pitched in a way that directs water away from your home, or it needs a drainage trench along the side to divert water.
flowering ground cover, gardening, landscaping, flowers LOVE the idea of planting low-growing, flowering ground cover between flagstone pavers, I'd use the one in the picture, or purple thyme or something like Sweet Vernal grass (vanilla scented)
