Permeable pavers and rain gardens require an offset from a retaining wall because water can undermine the stability of the wall. The distance of the offset is determined by the height of the wall.
Tree roots are found in the top 6-18 inches of soil and can extend 2-3 times beyond tree canopy area. Therefore, trees can limit which tools can be installed, especially rain gardens and permeable pavers.

Permeable pavers typically cannot be installed on driveways with a moderate to steep slope.

A driveway that drains onto an adjacent lawn or landscaped area may not be a good candidate for permeable pavers.

A patio that drains onto an adjacent lawn or landscaped area may not be a good candidate for permeable pavers.

Please be aware that limited site access can increase the cost of a project.
