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 called EKOPAVER and I understand it is being used around the Bay Area.If you google EKOPAVER information can be found.
