permeable concrete question.
 
Currently we have a gravel parking area which we have been thinking about paving. I have been looking into this permeable concrete so I dont have to worry as much about drainage. That being said, at the permiter of the slab I would like to have a thickened edge so I can drill in some brackets to support a short fence. Is this possible with permeable concrete, or would it just fracture with any load put onto it?

Also yes I know you have to have a license to pour permeable concrete (at least in my area), so that would be done by a pro, but I would do the fencing myself.

It will split
 
That type of concrete is a little more porous. whu not have a simple drain system. I wouldn;t recommend drilling though.
