What is GeoPave Tree Pit Pack UVR - Overview?
GeoPave is an ideal solution to the issues experienced by conventional open tree pits and metal grilles, for instance litter, weed growth, waste build up, trip hazards and vandalism. A GeoPave system can be installed into a tree pit for both young and mature trees, and can be applied adjacent to the tree trunk without damaging the tree itself. Resin Bound Paving is a permeable system, the rain water can therefore percolate through the surface to feed the trees roots without the need for watering tubes. A collar can be placed around a younger tree to allow the tree to grow.
A resin bound GeoPave Tree Pit system uses a two component resin and selected aggregate. The aggregate is typically supplied in 25kg bags and can be source from a variety of aggregate suppliers, provided that it is clean, washed and dried before use within a GeoPave Tree Pit. GeoPave Tree Pit Resin pack contains an activator and a base, which when mixed together provide the binder for the selected aggregate. The aggregate and resin are mixed together and then levelled and compacted using a trowel. A Tree Pit Pack is sold in 4.0kg packs.
Where can GeoPave Tree Pit Pack be used?

Installation of a GeoPave UVR Tree Pit is similar to a GeoPave paving system, differing only in the thickness that it is applied.

Having circulated in the mixer the aggregate should now be adequately coated in resin, it is then transported to the tree pit. The pit is filled to an approx thickness of 50mm and then levelled and compacted using a trowel. Please see product information sheet for full application details.
