Summary: The Creek along this estate is considered a sensitive area requiring a porous surface road. Joe Gayle & Associates (designer) wanted a natural look; Mike Hill at NuStone Technology (installer) wanted tough, elegant and natural. NuStone tried a sample area of Gravelpave2 abutting the bridge crossing the creed. The test lasted a month with the construction traffic traversing the Gravelpave2 the whole time before the owner said he liked it.  Hill knew it would provide the natural elegant look with the stone edging and proved exceptionally durable. He installed about 7500 sf of it for the drive and turn around.

Heather Scott, DHM Design, stated that the only way Jefferson County would allow the easement, was by providing Grasspave2 as a firelane. A Grasspave2 fire lane allowed for the area to be considered porous and undeveloped and the county granted the easement. The county considered Grasspave2 as a porous surface – the same as undeveloped land, thus not contributing to runoff.
