Project Profile:

Auto Show Track Demonstration Pond

Project Summary

Christy Webber Landscapes had the task of creating and installing the off road truck course at the Chicago Auto Show. Thecourse was required to feature a pond for trucks to drive through. A membrane liner for the water feature would require protection from being punctured, a product that would support the weight of the vehicles, and a product to prevent cover materials from moving to the bottom of the pond/water feature during vehicle passes. Gravelpave2 was selected for thesepurposes, delivered on its promises, and held up great.
