Wisconsin State Capitol Building
Grasspave2 was used to keep pedestrians from damaging the grass. Since installation, major improvements in the look and health of the grass has occured. Grasspave2 works by dissipating the point load to the base course below and protecting the root zone from compaction. On the steepest sloped parts, bare spots and exposed rings were visible. Since replanting grass seed, these problems are gone.

Grasspave2 runs nearly the full length of the walkway along the concrete apron (not in the mulch/bushes).
Some bare patches and exposed Grasspave2 rings show through on this sloped part of the installation. Adding sand and reseeding or soding - along with a little care, should fix this section right up.

An addtional shot from 2004. The sloped area with Grasspave2 have filled in quite a bit.
