Summary: Allison Landscaping was charged with finding an aesthetically pleasing solution to providing the maintenance crew access to the detention pond.  The Allison team looked both at Grasspave² and Terratame² for a beautiful, grass-covered solution.  Both products would work for this site, but since the maintenance vehicles will be no larger than pickup trucks, the Allison team decided Terratame² would work. The ten rolls of Terratame² took less than two days to prep, unroll, and anchor.  Grass will grow up and hide the Terratame² by spring.
