General John G Pershing Park, aka Federal Triangle, aka Ronald Reagan Building
Grasspave2 is in the grass areas underneath the locust trees to prevent wear problems from so many folks using the park. Much of the perimeter area is sloped, so the Grasspave2 serves to prevent erosion as well. Grass roots grow in and through the rings and grid, thus knitting the vegetation to the slope. Repeated, concentrated use would normally cause compaction and grass death, but Grasspave2 transfers weight of feet while protecting soils’ ability to absorb air and water.

City of Washington urban park is a green oasis drawing many visitors.
Grass slopes are protected from erosion and high traffic with Grasspave2. Old growth trees are preserved by the porous nature of Grasspave2 - allowing water, air, and nutrients to reach the roots.
When people sit in the shade of these locust trees, there is no soil compaction, allowing the grass to stay healthy even with low light levels.
