Currently we have a traditional deck off of the kitchen that needs the boards replaced. Rather than switching to composite decking, I was thinking of pulling the deck and putting in permeable pavers (Turfstone) with a much shortened deck stepdown (about 4' of deck as a step to the turfstone).
Has anyone used these in a patio setting (instead of a driveway setting)? And, I live in Maine, meaning that I get snow that has to be shoveled. A deck is relatively smooth to remove snow from, but how is a permeable patio going to respond to being shoveled?
