Permeable Paver Design and Installation for Commercial Projects
Smart Scapes LLC got its start in Nashville in 1993 as a “ma and pa” landscaping firm. Today it has grown into one of the only certified women-owned landscaping and hardscaping companies in middle Tennessee. With a team of over 20 employees, multiple crews, and a 24/7 work schedule, our group is able to take on huge paver projects for contractors all across the Southeast and Middle South.
In the last several years, Smart Scapes LLC has become a first-choice hardscape designer and paver installer for building contractors. And as a certified women-owned business, Smart Scapes is also a first choice for prime contractors as well.
But how can Smart Scapes help contractors get jobs done quickly? And what are the benefits to permeable pavers as opposed to traditional asphalt and concrete?
Driveway and Parking Lot Pavers – Nashville’s Next Paving Method
As Nashville has boomed, the need for more advanced, eco-friendly paving methods has come to the forefront. That’s where pavers, specifically permeable pavers, come into play. Water permeable pavers are designed to have zero negative impact on the environment. When water strikes such pavers, whether it is during a rainstorm immediately after permeable paver installation is completed (new pavers) or forty years down the road, the water will seep through the pavers and into the ground beneath, just as nature intended.
As Nashville has expanded, the city has experienced flooding problems, overpowered drain systems, damaged storm drains, erosion, polluted lakes and streams, etc. And we all remember the 2010 Flood, and none of us want to see a repeat of that.
The problem is, traditional asphalt and concrete paving systems are harmful to the natural watershed process of any geographic area. That’s because water strikes the pavement and runs off of it, not through it. That’s how Nashville gets much of its flooding issues.
Thankfully, water permeable pavers for parking lots and driveways solve all of that. And that’s why Smart Scapes LLC offers its services to building contractors on a daily basis. We’re creating eco-friendly and safe paver surfaces, surfaces that do not harm the environment; surfaces that last; surfaces that look fantastic for years to come.

Permeable Pavers – The Durable Paving Solution
Another reason why contractors choose permeable pavers is because these paving systems last. Most permeable pavers, like Belgard, Keystone, PaveDrain, Aqua Line, and Unilock, are rated to last several decades. In fact, most Smart Scapes-installed commercial paver parking lots, patios, and driveways will outlast their owners!
The technical name for water-pervious pavers is actually “permeable interlocking concrete pavers.” The keyword here is interlocking. Water permeable paver parking lots and water permeable paver sidewalks last forever because these systems form a sort of web, a paver surface with a tensile strength rated to withstand just about any weight or pressure. We’ve never tried to land a commercial airplane on one of our paver driveways or parking lots, but we bet you could do so without breaking a single paver.
Simply stated, permeable paver systems last forever. They don’t crack, erode, shrink, or abrade over time like concrete and asphalt do. Want the paver solution that you can slap a life guarantee on? Go with permeable pavers. Even businesses like gas stations and other high traffic areas are now choosing permeable pavers for their durability and their longevity.
Water Permeable Pavers and Permeable Paver Installation – How Smart Scapes Helps Contractors
So how can Smart Scapes LLC offer permeable paver installation in a way that helps contractors? There are a few perks that our paver design and paver installation technicians bring to the table on every job:
- We have crews working around the clock. This is a huge bonus for our contractor friends. We can send in our night-shift crew to install pavers, freeing contractors up to have other trades on the job site during the day.
- Our paver design team works with all of the top paver manufacturers in the region. We can get excellent service and preferential rates from Belgard, Keystone, PaveDrain, Aqua Line, and Unilock.
- We use mechanical installation machinery to install pavers. In fact, some of our equipment is totally unique to our business, unheard of among other hardscaping companies in Middle-Tennessee. That allows us to install paver projects quickly.
- We also offer machine install pavers over concrete. With this approach, one loses the permeable aspect of the pavers, but this is a great way for contractors to install beautiful, lifetime-guaranteed paving stones for about the same price as pouring asphalt or concrete.
Smart Scapes LLC is forming relationships with new contractors every week, simply because our team saves contractors money and delivers a phenomenal end product.
