Is it possible to taper a buffer?

I am looking at creating a tapered buffer for a drain off a field that meets up with the drain that runs alongside the road.  the buffer would be used to negotiate with the farmer to create a grassed runway(drain) to minimize erosion of his field.  Any help, advice or suggestions is greatly appreciated.

 

The Pink lines represent the stream delineation that I've run in the area.  What I want to do is create a tapered buffer from a point on the pink line(NW-SE) (ex. 15m) from the ditch (E-W pink).  We would like to use the teal line(road allowance) to determine how much land creating this buffer the farmer will 'lose' from production. 

 

PS I'm bad with paint but it gets the point across
