Tree Pits are designed to provide an attractive and aesthetically pleasing porous paving system, using a variety of natural or recycled aggregates. The installation of trees within any site can dramatically enhance the overall appearance, so ensuring they are installed correctly with durable tree pits that are in keeping with the surroundings is vital.
Available in UV Protected Polyurethane, the resin binder is mixed with a range of natural or recycled aggregate with a typical grading of 6-10mm. The open texture achieved provides a highly porous resin bound surface, allowing the tree roots access to both air and water penetration.
As Tree Pit installations are installed flush with the surrounding paving areas they have the added advantage of not becoming a litter trap, which can occur with traditional tree grilles.

Kerb edging and collar detail
A suitable edging detail and collar is installed around the base of the tree and at the edges of the tree pit as required.
The tree should be planted and anchored in urban tree soil or similar.
The addition of a Greenleaf Root Rain Precinct Irrigator/Aerator and Greenleaf Root Director is also advisable.
