I saw a new product at the West Coast green show in San Francisco that would be great for a driveway or any hardscape surfuce.This is a paver that is permeable and lets the watergo through the paver and into the ground below. This paver is actually porous and does not have gaps between the pavers. This paver is called EKOPAVER and I understand it is being used around the Bay Area.If you google EKOPAVER information can be found.
