This is the first time I've had a project that has both existing and new dirt roads that will not be paved, or covered with gravel, or anything else.
I'm not really concerned about the SRI aspect (I assume that would have to be measured if we want to count it), but is this something that should be considered hardscape?
The project is in Puerto Rico, and I believe the soil type lends itself to remain quite pervious. This leads me to question whether it's "hard" or not. I know in other areas, it would get compacted and lose its ability to allow for infiltration.
Separate, but related, the roads are around the perimeter of my site work. Would the new dirt roads be considered part of my LEED boundary?
I just haven't had it come up before and am wondering what others would do.
