- Totally porous,water drains through like a sieve!
- Slows water, so it flows naturally into water table.
- Suds compliant.
- Eliminates trip hazards
- Allows air and water to reach roots creating healthier trees
- Feature tree pits available to enhance your scheme
Treescape Trees are perhaps more valued in an urban landscape than any other. Trees play an important role in our natural life support system. They also have a vital role to play in the sustainability of our towns and cities. Trees help remove many pollutants from the air and take in thousands of gallons of rain water which helps prevent flash flooding BUT this can only happen when the root system of the tree is able to access it. If trees are unable to access air, water and other nutrients they will spread their roots in search of it causing millions of pounds worth of damage damage to underground services such as water, gas and drain pipes. Roots can crack pavements causing trip hazards, which result in expensive compensation claims each year for councils.
We developed Treescape to address this problem. Depending on individual requirements Treescape is either made in our factory and delivered to site where it can easily be installed by the contractor or laid by hand. In either case, natural voids are created during the construction of the rubber and resin sub-base. These voids will hold the water until it can be drawn down into the tree roots by capillary action. Air and other nutrients are also accessed by the tree in the same way, allowing the tree to flourish. Treescape can be created to enhance any scheme and by incorporating Artscape any desired design, can be reproduced. Treescape is also virtually maintenance free, unlike tree surrounds and tree pits with loose chippings that often collect debris. Treescape is also designed to withstand freeze and thaw without cracking.
