What is GeoPave Tree Pit Pack - Overview?
Traditional open tree pits and metal grilles often encounter several problems such as weeds, litter, waste build up, trip hazards and in many cases vandalism. By Installing a GeoPave Tree Pit system it will alleviate many of these issues. The GeoPave surface is flat and even, weed growth is reduced and litter cannot collect underneath the grilles. A resin bound system is unique as it can be applied abut to the tree trunk without damaging the tree and the roots are fed with the rain water that percolates through the GeoPave's surface, without the need for watering tubes. An expansion collar can be fitted around a younger tree, allowing for the tree's growth.
