Paving and hard landscaping works frequently require additional, specialist treatment to ensure that the area immediately around trees (tree pits) in public landscaping are free-draining yet solid, sound and strong enough to allow inevitable foot traffic.

GeoPave resin bound surfacing is ideal for tree pit application and, unlike traditional grid systems, it removes any potential slip or trip hazards, prevents the loss of soil or growing media, and stops the build-up of rubbish and litter around the trees. A GeoPave resin surface is low maintenance, only requiring occasional sweeping.

Using a resin bound system can also aesthetically enhance an area and can complement the surrounding paving, according to the specifier's requirements.

Key features

  • Available in UV-resistant and non-UV-resistant grades
  • Attractive, durable and low maintenance
  • Prohibits litter
  • Porous - rainwater feeds the tree's roots
  • Complements the existing environment
  • Restricts weed growth

Resin bound for tree pits

In natural environments, rain falls on permeable surfaces and soaks into the ground, this is a process called infiltration. In built-up urban areas where many surfaces are sealed by buildings and paving, natural infiltration is limited. Instead, drainage networks consisting of pipes and culverts divert surface water to local watercourses. In some areas, this has resulted in downstream flooding and deterioration in river water quality caused when foul sewers are overwhelmed by surface water leading to the overflow of dirty water into rivers.

Once installed, GeoPave has open voids across the surface, allowing surface water to filter through, making it an ideal permeable system for tree pits and areas prone to standing water making it SuDS (Sustainable Drainage Systems) compliant.

This open texture provides a highly porous surface, allowing tree roots access to both air and water penetration. Installed with a suitable base build-up and configured for SuDS compliance will avoid the cost of having to install expensive drainage systems.
