Project Profile:

Santa Clara University

Project Summary

This is a beautiful campus with a great landscape maintenance department. The California mission architecture style fits in well with the quiet pedestrian orientation. Closing off streets and turning them into grass lawn areas certainly has had a positive effect on the campus. Product was installed mainly in two time periods, summer 1994 and 1996 by two different landscaping companies, both of which have ordered from us several times, and perform high quality work.

Project Gallery

Santa Clara Street looking toward the Alameda Street.
Overhead walkway looks out onto grass lawn area instead of a street.
Fire hydrant helps identify the grass fire lane. Shade trees contribute to a cooler environment and grass collects airborne dirt.
Grasspave2 fits well on a curve. View of The Alameda former street.
Concrete square markers in the grass help identify the fire lane on the Alameda Street.
View looking across the fire lane showing the two fire lane edge markers. These are necessary because the driving lane doesn’t follow the pedestrian sidewalk.
Here the fire lane does follow the sidewalk and Grasspave2 is only used to widen the driving lane.
