The back of Carestone's building was designed to accommodate large fire trucks with easy off street access. Several bedroom window views include trees and a large lawn area reinforced with Grasspave2. Asphalt paving would have been unsightly in this residential setting and reflective heat would have added to the cooling costs, especially since Arizona's climate is hot during much of the year. Grasspave2 has energy saving characteristics since grass is heat absorptive and not heat reflective. Grass also captures dust. Controlling airborne particulates is important for facility air filtration equipment. The grass and trees absorb carbon emissions released from heavy street traffic on the north side of Carestone.

The grass was dormant in January when these pictures were taken. The Grasspave2 fire lane runs the length of the building.
