Can you 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.
