Capra Landscaping Overcome Challenges of Working on Sandy Ground in Seaside Heights, NJ
The heavy rains and occasional storms coming off the sea, as well as the saltwater droplets in the air, have meant that all but the most resilient materials have been done away with for driveways in Seaside Heights, NJ. Given the sandy ground of this area, and subject to these weather conditions, asphalt is impractical. Most Seaside Heights homeowners opt for gravel driveways to allow for easy drainage and to reduce flooding. The problem with gravel is that, over time, it is dispersed all over the yard, leaving patches of lawn and bare ground in its wake. Poured concrete will stay in place, but it lacks the permeability of gravel and often ends up cracked as the sandy ground beneath it shifts.

To overcome these challenges, Unilock Authorized Contractor, Capra Landscaping, has opted to use Unilock Copthorne pavers on an open graded base. This choice of paver and base material has a number of positive implications. The spacers used between the pavers make the surface permeable, while the open graded base ensures rapid throughflow of rainwater. This means that the homeowner receives the drainage benefits of gravel without the inevitable mess associated with it. Choosing pavers over poured concrete provides the advantage of a longer lifespan and an aesthetic that is warmer and better suited to creating a welcoming coastal appearance. In addition, the shifting of the sandy ground will have no effect on the integrity of a paver driveway. With this project, Capra Landscaping has proven the value of Unilock pavers for contractors working in areas with tricky weather and soil conditions.
