Auto Show Track Demonstration Pond
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.
