3.1 grading vignette and issue of wrap around swale

Hi guys,
So I saw the 3.1 grading vignette and it looks a lot more complicated to me than the 4.0.

Program
1. Regrade the site so that water will flow around and away from the stone paved area.
2. The stone paved area and its contours shall remain undisturbed.
3. The existing light stands on either side of the monument and the two groups of existing trees shall not be disturbed.
4. The slope of the regraded portions of the site shall not exceed 20%.

So its an EXISTING monument that we are grading around and we cannot touch the existing grading under the monument.

What I really want to know is IS NCARBS solution correct??? I'm afraid to trust their vignette solutions.

Its on page 38 of this link... http://ironwarrior.org/ARE/NCARB_Software(OLD)/(3_1)/Graphics_31.pdf

Additionally here is someone else discussing it...

Won't recommend practicing 3.1 site grading.

really? because its a situation where we are working around an existing object?

I just got concerned that they could throw that at us and Id probably fail that one.

Stick with 4.0 practice program
