When your project is subject to surface runoff restrictions, Eco-Priora is a product that you will want to consider. When installed on an open graded base with a fine stone chip between the joints, the product’s accentuated spacer bars allows rainwater to permeate the paved surface where it can then be absorbed by the subsoil, and the basic rectilinear shape works well whether your design is traditional or modern.
Eco-Priora is a rectilinear combination of paver sizes used mainly for commercial permeable applications. Eco-Priora can be customized for your particular design requirements. (Minimum qty. applies)
Recommended Base Stabilization – one layer of DriveGrid™" stabilization grid between subgrade and base material. Recommended depth 8” to 10” below pavers for maximum stability and performance. Use under Permeable Base.
Standard Base and Bedding Course – Not applicable
Permeable Base – Min. 6” – 8” of ¾“clear open-graded stone compacted to achieve full particle lock-up and consolidation. (Clear open-graded does not compact but does consolidate slightly by rattling the particles together.)
Permeable Bedding Course – 1” thick of 1/4” clear open-graded chip stone – (ASTM No. 8) screeded over base.
Special Note: Concrete Direct Overlay – Not applicable
Jointing Material and Joint Stabilization - Clear stone chip (ASTM No. 9) is swept in as jointing infill.
Handling – Can be installed by hand.
Edge Restraint - Always install an edge restraint around the perimeter of any paver installation not restrained by building structures. Spike-in edge restraints come in plastic and metal and work well for most applications. A concrete curb or a sub-surface concrete wedge can also be installed to retain the edge.
Paver Compaction - Always use a protective polymer pad on the bottom of your compactor when doing the final compaction of the pavers. An alternative is to use a rubber-roller compactor for the final compaction.
Cleaners – Any cleaner specifically designed for pavers may be used for color restoration or general cleaning. Follow manufacturer’s dilution rates and application procedures. Always test a small area to make sure the results are as expected.

There’s an emerging environmental consciousness across society that’s becoming ever more mainstream, and it’s expressed with the most clarity by the way consumers wield their wallets. It’s as much about how purchases fit into an eco-friendly lifestyle as it is about the products and services themselves.
Sustainability—reducing the environmental impact of operating a business—is a concept frequently debated for businesses both large and small, and landscape contracting companies are no exception. What risks and benefits are there in providing sustainable outdoor living designs for homeowners? What kinds of sustainable material choices are available? These are questions worth evaluating when deciding how to operationalize sustainability in your landscape contracting business.
