Orange Bowl Stadium
The University of Miami renewed their contract at the Orange Bowl Stadium when the overall site was improved with grass parking. The City of Miami researched all the grass paving products and found that Grasspave2 gave them the best of everything - 100% grass finished appearance, compatibility with asphalt aisles, low staff requirements for unmonitored self-parking, 92% root area for best grass health, benefits for the environment, and a great surface for tailgate parties. The water table is high on this site. When it rains in southern Florida, a large volume drops during a short period of time and the water table can rise to the surface. The coral/sand base drains well, but asphalt parking generates an overload of stormwater. By mixing asphalt aisles with Grasspave2 parking bays, the drainage is instant through the grass, sand, and coral. The quality of water is improved with grass as a natural filter.
