This video gives a detailed description of the installation process for a simple pervious concrete path using fine, ⅛” (3mm) and smaller aggregate.
Raveling, loose rock on the surface, of pervious concrete can be common. This video will help you to identify the causes of raveling in pervious concrete and tips on how to avoid it.
