On Location: Green Parking in AP

Biking around Asbury Park, New Jersey this weekend I discovered a great example of a green parking lot. It would have been much easier to just blacktop the entire space, but instead the developers incorporated drought-resistant vegetation, trees, no curbs, gravel rip-rap in strategic places and planters that could potentially manage the runoff from adjacent roof-top gutters. Only green parking strategy missing… some permeable pavement (I prefer pavers).
