Back in January, we were tasked of installing new porous pavement around a pair of trees just two blocks away from Pike Place Market in Downtown Seattle. The struggles with working downtown include narrow sidewalks, a busy lunch rush and of course, dealing with the cold, rainy weather.
This pavement installation spanned the course of a few days from when we first removed the top soil from the original tree pit. After removing a few inches off the top, we filled in a new layer of gravel. After quickly mixing together our standard porous pavement solution, we needed to quickly lay it down. With the cold and wet weather, we need to cover the surface for a few days to avoid any crowds walking over the roots.
