Project Profile:

Kester Park

Project Summary

Kester Park is a large Parks and Recreation complex of ball fields and play equipment. Some parking, probably the most frequently used areas are asphalt, while all the overflow areas on three streets is in Grasspave2. The maintenance crew on site at the time of the photography indicated that the long grass fertilization is different from the special mix that is used on both the parking areas and ball fields. The Grasspave2 installations on the three off-street parking areas is now three years old and well maintained. Separate lawn maintenance crews take care of these different areas.
