This photo, taken in October 2016, shows the completed installation with healthy grass growing on the Grasspave2 system.
Prior to Grasspave2 being installed, the asphalt trail was poured, and the area designated for widening was prepared.
Grasspave2 was rolled out and shaped by cutting.  Cutting can be done with heavy-duty scissors. However, in this case, a saw was used to speed up the process.

Grasspave2 intersects a sidewalk.  Placing the Grasspave2 level to adjacent paving will reduce wear on both surfaces making for an easy walking/driving transition.
