There are custom-made bricks with openings that can be laid over properly 
prepared surface.   Any road surface should  have good provision for drainage 
under it. 

There is also a "tarmac" type surface that is permeable.  I have a friend who 
has used it at his store and I'll email him.   However any road surface or 
driveway surface contractor should know about it.  s

To some extent, the most appropriate material depends on the level of traffic
