Porous Pave Jenkins Arboretum

“After talking with colleagues and seeing some installations for myself, I thought the material would be a solution as a topcoat over our old asphalt paths, which had become worn and cracked, with pot holes in some spots, heaving in others.”
— Harold Sweetman, Ph.D., executive director, Jenkins Arboretum & Gardens.
Re-coating Old Asphalt with the Pour-in-Place Permeable Paving Material Makes the Paths More Safe and Comfortable

Visitors to Jenkins Arboretum & Gardens, one of Pennsylvania's horticultural and environmental treasures, stroll along 1.2 miles of woodland paths to enjoy five distinct garden areas. In September 2015, the Arboretum re-coated 21,000 square feet of the old asphalt paths with Porous Pave XL. 

““Porous Pave is the only permeable paving material we have worked that enables you to achieve an even and seamless surface across top coated asphalt or concrete and areas of new installation on an aggregate base.” ”
— Bryan Geesey, owner, Gessey’s Rock & Block Designs, Reading, Penn.
““The winding paths are one of the essential design features of the Arboretum. With their curves, switchbacks and slopes, the pathways create an immersive experience for visitors with garden discovery around each bend, Porous Pave gave us exactly the result I had hoped for to renew and improve the paths."”
— Harold Sweetman, Ph.D., executive director, Jenkins Arboretum & Gardens
