Morris Arboretum Pennock Walk Porous Paving

Description

A porous paving system was incorporated into the Pennock Flower Walk as part of Andropogon Associates’ master site plan for the Morris Arboretum. The stormwater management system uses porous pavers and inlets to direct the water into stone beds underneath the paved surface. These stone recharge beds retain runoff at its source and allow for infiltration into the groundwater supply. The stone beds also provide plants with the added benefits of root aeration and passive irrigation.
