With over 20 years of experience in the waterproofing industry, Lining Systems GRP offers a comprehensive waterproofing service for commercial and domestic applications. Linings can be used on any surface to provide a waterand/or chemical-resistant surface. • Fibreglass linings The company’s versatile range of fibreglass linings can be applied to any shape and, once cured, creates a solid, hard-wearing, waterproof and seamless lining which provides a long-lasting, cost-effective surface. A variety of finishes can also be specified, including aggregates ready for stonework, non-slip surfaces and any RAL colour. • Epoxy coatings For projects where fibreglass is not a suitable choice, Lining Systems GRP can provide on-site application of a wide range of epoxy coatings using Jotun spray products. • Abrasive blasting services Lining Systems GRP supplies a comprehensive onsite abrasive blasting service. This can be used to clean a structure or prepare the surface for its new, water/chemical-resistant coating. Once the damaged, dirty, rusty or defaced surfaces are restored, they can then be lined using the company’s fibreglass linings or epoxy coatings to provide chemical, heat and water resistance.

Gridforce offers a unique plastic paver system made from 100% recycled LDPE, which provides effective surface drainage and ground reinforcement. It is suitable for temporary or permanent use and provides a firm surface that will not sink, rut or shift. The pavers are cost effective compared to impermeable surfaces and their interlocking design makes installation easy. The system meets current SuDS legislation and has a 10-year guarantee. • Applications Hard landscaping applications include SuDS, car parks, ground reinforcement, industrial hardstanding, access routes, helipads, construction sites and domestic driveways. Soft landscaping applications include lawn and slope reinforcement, events grounds, caravan sites, golf courses and ground stabilisation. The Gridforce Park range can be used for instant grass reinforcement by being inverted and pressed into existing grass without the conventional dig out and build-up of sub-base. • Sustainable Urban Drainage Systems Pavers are fully compliant for use in SuDS to provide on-site infiltration of rainwater or stormwater, eliminating the need for drainage pipework. By returning the stormwater to the water table, pressure on the sewers is relieved.

The Terram Cellular Confinement System, or Geocell, uses a three-dimensional geotextile honeycomb structure to provide soil stabilisation. The system confines the fill material within strong and flexible geotextile cells. This restricts downslope migration in slopes, provides an even load distribution on paved and unpaved areas, and provides a stable base over soft subgrades. • Soil reinforcement Geocells provide a cost-effective alternative to conventional earth retention structures, owing to their flexibility and suitability for use with a wide range of infill materials and foundation soils. Typical soil reinforcement applications include steepened embankments, dams and flood defence bunds, retention bunds, green walls, culvert head walls and sound barriers. • Ground stabilisation Geocells reinforce unbound granular layers in roads and other trafficked areas, such as car parks, railways, airports and docks. They are used for site compounds, pile cap reinforcement, stabilised drainage layers, permeable load supporting surfaces, permanent way ballast stabilisation, and sub-base stabilisation for block paving, green access roads, temporary car parks, and permanent and temporary access roads. • Load support Geocells provide a stable base for paved surfaces and surface stabilisation for unpaved areas. When filled with sands or granular fills, their cellular structure performs as a semi-rigid slab. They distribute loads laterally, stabilising base materials, reducing sub grade contact pressures and minimising surface rutting. They prevent lateral displacement of infill and reduce vertical deflections, even on low-strength sub grades. • Tree root protection Geocells can also protect tree roots during hard landscaping and construction. Such products are recommended for no-dig tree root protection by BS 5837:1991 and the Arboricultural Advisory and Information Service’s Arboricultural Practice Note 12: Driveways Close to Trees (APN12).

Composition and manufacture Geocells are made from a strong, permeable geotextile, which restricts the movement of fill material while allowing the free movement of water and nutrients to create healthy soil. They are not prone to the cracking, spalling, splintering or corrosion that can affect concrete, steel and timber based reinforcement systems.

Geocells are easy to handle and install, low maintenance, economical and strong. They allow the overall construction depth of ground stabilisation works to be reduced. This in turn saves on materials and excavation costs, and provides safe working platforms.

GrassProtecta® is a heavy-duty polyethylene mesh that reinforces grassed root networks preventing smear and wear. It is suitable for permanent grassed overflow car parks and pedestrian areas on firm, well-drained soil.

Technical data GrassProtecta’s oscillated mesh structure provides a high level of traction and slip resistance, and is available in three thicknesses: Heavy 14.5mm, Medium 13mm, and Lite 10mm. It will reinforce up to 8 tonnes/static axle load on firm ground, making it suitable for applications from overflow car parks and light-aircraft taxiways to caravan sites, equestrian surfaces and verge stabilisation.

Installation and maintenance GrassProtecta® mesh is simple to install. The sward grows through the mesh apertures and knits with the filaments to create a strong, discreetly reinforced surface capable of withstanding vehicle loads, limiting damage and helping to reduce compaction by reducing direct contact with the soil surface. It can also be installed onto newly landscaped areas and seeded as required. Newly installed areas should be left untrafficked until the sward and the mesh have knitted – normally after a few weeks during the growing season, or a few months out of season.

CORE Landscape Products Tree root protection system Porous Wearing Course

CORE TRP is a three-dimensional cellular web system that provides protection to the roots of mature trees from pedestrian and vehicular traffic. It comprises a geocellular confinement panel that provides: three-dimensional load distribution; porous and highly puncture-resistant TRP membranes; and a TRP geogrid that provides additional 2-dimensional support. The system is installed within the RPA on top of the existing soil to create a shallow, high loadbearing, above-ground sub-base. It helps distribute the weight of traffic evenly across the surface delivering a significant reduction in the loads transferred from above. This prevents harmful subsoil compaction around the roots.

Grassroof® is an overlay paving system that can be applied to new or existing flat roof structures. It can be used as an extensive or simple-intensive paving layer, or as a base layer for intensive roof designs. When installed, Grassroof® weighs as little as 4.39kg/m2 for extensive roofs.

Installation Grassroof® units interlock together and can be laid either directly onto the roof membrane, or via a foil-backed polystyrene underlay where the roof membrane might be susceptible to indentations. Grassroof®, with its simple “leave and lay” format, incorporates sedum turf; no soil is required and these succulent plants are able to store moisture. A key element in simplifying installation is the use of a Regarm moisture retaining blanket, comprising 100% recycled shredded garment waste bonded to a woven fabric layer. The specification of Regarm will enable the omission of a soil layer, reducing the volume of heavy bulk materials during installation.

Grass Concrete Ltd produces the Betoconcept® range of cellular and solid concrete retaining wall blocks. • Retaining wall blocks Betoflor® cellular retaining wall blocks are used to construct retaining walls up to 2.5m high. Blocks incorporate interconnecting lugs on the underside, which aid quick construction and help to eliminate overturning. They are filled with topsoil as each layer is added. This enables plants and flowers to be grown in the wall. Betoatlas® blocks are based on the Betoflor® design but are suitable for retaining walls up to 10m high. Betotitan® extends the range of planted retaining walls to heights of up to 22m. Features such as variable angles and face geometry can also be utilised. Leromur® precast concrete retaining wall blocks have interlocking ribs on the top and underside of the units. The blocks produce split-textured or smooth-faced walls suitable for hard-wearing applications, such as marine walling.

Greenfix offers Geoweb® cellular confinement systems and Envirolok encapsulated soil bag systems for providing naturally attractive, vegetated earth retention structures. • Geoweb cellular confinement system Geoweb® cellular confinement systems are used to create retaining walls. They are suitable for challenging site conditions; are structurally stable; develop an attractive, naturally vegetated appearance; and reduce stormwater run-off to help meet sustainable building requirements. Typical applications include: steepened slopes, geocomposite retaining walls, gravity walls and multi-layered channel systems. They can be designed for various requirements, including a wide range of infill, backfill, groundwater and surcharge conditions. Geoweb® is easy for contractors to use on site. The sections are compact, and are lighter and easier to handle on site compared with concrete block retaining wall systems. They are also suitable for difficult-to-access or remote locations. This speeds up installation and reduces worker down-time. Geoweb® enables the use of on-site materials to be used for infill, which also saves construction costs. • Envirolok vegetated environmental bags Envirolok is an ecologically advanced, vegetated bag system that provides immediate stabilisation and permanent erosion control. It can be used in water or on dry sites, including bioengineered shoreline protection schemes and retaining walls. The bags contain structural soils, which are connected with spikes. Envirolok allows for near-vertical construction that can be contoured to the existing non-load bearing soils with the flexibility to adapt, unlike hard armoured systems.

These range from highperformance hydromulch that helps bind seed with the slope surface, to Soft Armour systems that incorporate both high-performance hydromulch and turf reinforcement matting for even higher levels of erosions control. • Biotic soil amendments Spray-applied prior to hydroseeding, biotic soil amendments are designed to build soil conditions that improve the rate of seed germination and plant growth, eliminating the need for importing expensive topsoil. Healthy soil is imperative for the establishment and support of plant growth. On many sites soil left for re-vegetation is often severely degraded, lacking many of the essential organic, nutrient and microbial properties needed to establish growth. Specially blended soil amendments made from organic materials, micronutrients and active mycorrhizal inoculants help soil come alive so that vegetation can thrive evenly on areas with very little or extremely poor soil. This reduces the need for extensive and long-term erosion control measures. • Wildflower and tree and shrub seed In addition to grass, hydroseeding can also be undertaken using wildflower, sedum and even tree and shrub seed to create natural habitats for wildlife.

Ridgistorm-XL is an engineered, thermoplastic, large-diameter pipe system for use in a wide variety of applications. Ridgistorm-XL is lighter in weight than rigid materials, yet strong, robust and flexible. It is able to withstand significant ground movement and differential settlement.

Applications Ridgistorm-XL is suitable for surface water and foul water drainage, combined sewers, largescale flood alleviation schemes, renewable energy and even displacement ventilation. It is available in varying stiffness categories to suit individual site conditions, and can be used for a range of applications including residential and commercial developments, highways and open spaces. • Pipe profile design Pipe profiles can be adapted to maximise strength and minimise the use of material within the pipeline. This improves pipeline performance and provides a fully engineered solution. • Jointing options Ridgistorm-XL can be designed and manufactured to suit any jointing requirements on-site. Ring seals, electro-fusion welding, extrusion welding, flange connections and mechanical pipe couplings can all be utilised with the system. • Safety ancillaries Additional health and safety features can be chosen for Ridgistorm-XL chambers, including lifting points, safety chains and guardrails.

Dimensions Diameters: 750–3000mm; lengths: 1.25–12m.

Yorkshire Water utilises Ridgistorm-XL

VW profile Profile type VW enables the production of a solid pipe with a smooth inner and outer surface. These pipes can be produced with a wall thickness of 5–80mm. This profile can be used in certain pipeline and chamber applications.

PR profile Pipes produced with a PR profile achieve high stiffness with relatively low weight. This is a common pipe profile for use in surface water, foul and combined sewer drainage.

Olympia profile In addition to the PR profile, the Olympia profile option can achieve greater pipeline stiffness with a comparatively low weight. This profile is often used in the larger diameters of Ridgistorm-XL.

Capacities

Additional entries Pipes ‰ 53 Ridgistorm-XL chambers, manholes and catchpits ‰ 55 Water management solutions ‰ 60 Green infrastructure ‰ 535

Due to its large diameter, Ridgistorm-XL can be used to intercept and store large volumes of stormwater run-off. A multi-leg tank system can comprise Ridgistorm-XL pipes, bespoke fabrications and chambers.

Accreditation Ridgistorm-XL is WRC approved and has approval from water companies for capital works projects and Section 104 and 106 agreements.

SQ profile This profile option has a smooth inner and outer surface, including internal profile to one layer. High stiffness is achieved through the SQ profile, making it ideal for extremely high loads or larger diameters.

SQ2 profile SQ2 offers the same benefits as the single-layer SQ profile, yet it can be produced with additional profile layers for added ring stiffness.

CPR profile The majority of Polypipe’s pre-fabricated components have a CPR profile achieving high stiffness with relatively low weight.

Penstock pre-fitted to headwall with floor column

Althon offers flow control devices that can be used in surface, sewer and process water applications. • Flap valves Flap valves are a simple and effective way to prevent water backflow into a system. For heavier duty applications, 100–1500mm flaps are made with additional features such as welded stiffening ribs. They are manufactured in a combination of HDPE and 316 stainless steel, meaning they are lightweight and high in strength. They are easy to install, responsive and reliable. • Penstocks Medium-duty penstocks are a simple, effective way to prevent water backflow into a system. Designs have been developed to accommodate the majority of situations where a penstock is required. They are suitable for sealing pressures of 5mWC as standard, require virtually no maintenance, and are fast, safe and easy to install. • Stop logs Stop logs are used for the isolation and containment of water. They are lightweight and corrosion resistant, and are suitable for applications where standard single-piece stop gates would be too heavy to lift or where multiple door sections are called for. They are manufactured in the latest materials combined with aluminium or stainless steel, meaning that a solution can be provided for most water sewage and effluent treatment situations. • Inline WaStop valves WaStop valves can be installed inline between two pipes to prevent backflow. They are made from 304 or 316 stainless steel, or PVC tube, and incorporate a cone-shaped chloroprene membrane. The membrane allows water flow to pass in the desired direction, but when backflow occurs, the membrane fills, sealing the pipe. As the WaStop does not rely on gravity to close the membrane, it does not need to be fitted against a vertical headwall. They are suitable for pressures up to 8mWC.

ACO Q-Brake vortex flow control

ACO Water Management is an expert in water engineering, providing design solutions for stormwater management. ACO’s approach to SuDS controls rainwater distribution from when it hits the ground until it re-enters the natural water environment, minimising environmental impact and maximising sustainability. ACO Water Management solutions address the four stages of Effective Water Management: Collect, Clean, Hold, Release. • Surface water infiltration and storage ACO StormBrixx is a unique and patented plastic geocellular stormwater management system for attenuation and soakaway (infiltration) usage. Its versatile design allows the system to be used in configurations and applications across all construction environments as a standalone solution or as part of an integrated sustainable urban drainage (SuDS) scheme. The patented brickbonding and cross bonding feature provides a strong, long-term installation and also helps to improve the construction speed of the tank. Delivery, site logistics and installation are all significantly simplified, as a result of the system’s ‘stackable’ design. The range consists of StormBrixx SD (standardduty) and StormBrixx HD (heavy-duty) systems. The open cell structure for both systems allows easy access for CCTV and jetting equipment from just a few access points. • Flow control and regulation ACO Q-Brake Vortex is a horizontal vortex flow control system designed to regulate stormwater flows of 2–100 litres per second. ACO Q-Plate regulates stormwater flows where a vortex flow control is not the most effective solution, or where flows are greater than 100 l/s. Both systems can be used in conjunction with retention and attenuation systems, such as ACO StormBrixx, as an integrated sustainable urban drainage (SuDS) scheme.

This versatile stormwater separator can work with single and multiple inlet pipes and inlet grates, and is easily maintained from the surface by a standard vacuum tanker. • Downstream Defender® Downstream Defender® captures and retains sediment, oils and floatables from stormwater run-off over a wide range of flows in a small footprint. This advanced hydrodynamic vortex separator provides impressive and reliable removals of sediments, oil and floatables from stormwater run-off and is easily maintained from the surface by a standard vacuum tanker. • Up-Flo™ Filter Up-Flo™ Filter captures sediment, oils, heavy metals and nutrients from stormwater in a reduced footprint. This advanced stormwater treatment solution combines sedimentation and screening with fluidised bed filtration to deliver exceptional surface water pollution removal. • Hydro Biofilter™ Hydro Biofilter™ removes sediment, trash, oil, dissolved metals and nutrients from surface runoff using the natural power of biofiltration. Combining the simplicity of SuDS with the sophistication of smart engineering in a biofiltration system, the Hydro Biofilter™ uses soil and filter media to treat an assortment of coarse, fine and dissolved pollutants from surface water run-off, even during high flows.

StableGRASS does not restrict root growth

HRL grass and gravel grids create a naturally permeable reinforced paved surface for vehicular and pedestrian use. Adding strength and durability, and largely invisible once installed, they blend in to the surrounding landscape with minimal visual impact. • StableGRASS grass grids StableGRASS offers two panel sizes in both 38mm and 50mm depths. Available in Green and Black as standard with Buff Dolomite produced to order, the range is flexible, covering almost all potential applications. All are fully interlocking, very robust, and secure, whilst the cell design creates free space for root development. StableGRASS MAXI is the flagship grid. Large dimensional panels of 1.2x0.8m can be laid in brick bond pattern, giving enhanced stability and enabling significant productivity gains on larger installations. Standard light to medium use will require the 38mm depth, whilst more regular vehicular requirements would need 50mm. StableGRASS 38 and StableGRASS 50 are supplied in more traditional 50x50cm panels, where that is a preferred option. Compressive load resistance is similar to StableGRASS MAXI. • StablePAVE gravel grids StablePAVE gravel grids feature a robust weedsuppressant membrane attached to the base, and offer a fast, effective, reinforced, permeable paving whilst restricting aggregate migration and preventing rutting. They allow all the aesthetic benefits of gravel surfaces with significantly added durability and a large reduction in the maintenance demands often associated with gravel paving. StablePAVE TRADE is a translucent white interconnecting panel of 1.2x0.8m produced in both 30 and 40mm depths. Designed as an economic paving solution for light to medium vehicle parking, pathway, pedestrian and communal areas, the grids will be invisible after correct installation. StablePATH ECO Black is an identical panel to StablePAVE TRADE other than the colour. As a consequence, cost is reduced and it is often used as a budget option on pathway networks. StablePAVE HD pro is a fully interlocking heavier duty grid for more frequently trafficked areas and where heavier point loads, such as horse boxes, and trailers are in regular use. Light Grey in colour StablePAVE HD Pro is 38mm deep.

Marshalls’ Priora is the UK’s best-selling permeable paving system. It eliminates surface water run-off, alleviates flood risk and improves water quality, providing biodiversity benefits to the local area. In addition, field tests in 2014 have proven that the patented nibs on the edge of each block create 40% more interlock than British Standard blocks. This provides a structurally superior surface that can take heavy loads moving at speeds in excess of 30mph. Priora sub-bases are also now shallower than the British Standard, saving time and money. Priora comes in a range of aesthetic finishes, including flag-sized options. • Sub-base ancillaries Priora blocks are underpinned by a suite of sub-base ancillaries, which can be specified as required. Priora 20mm sub-base and 6mm laying course aggregate give a higher void ratio and structural integrity than specified in the British Standard.

Established in 1995, DCM Surfaces is a national contractor providing bound and bonded surfaces for new build and renovation projects, including resin bound gravel, resin bonded gravel, selfbinding gravel and rubber-gravel mix. • Resin bound gravel A high-performance SuDS-compliant, porous aggregate bound system. Available in a range of colours and blends, the surface provides an extremely hard-wearing, visually attractive finish. Unlike block paving, bound gravel is slip resistant, weed resistant, and does not sink after extended use. This makes an ideal, low-maintenance surface for driveways, pathways and walkways. • Resin bonded gravel A hard-wearing decorative surface with a textured finish. It is not porous, and the rough texture gives the surface a natural effect. Bonded gravel is applied by scattering stone gravel onto a resin base. The gravel aggregate is available in a range of colours which can be used to match existing exterior features. • Self-binding gravel An easy-to-lay alternative to traditional materials such as flags, paving, macadam or concrete. The gravel binds together when rolled to provide a self-compacted surface which is firmer underfoot than conventional loose aggregate. Self-binding gravel is suited to a wide spectrum of applications, including domestic driveways, golf courses and rural footpaths. • Rubber-gravel mix Combines the flexibility of rubber with the strength, appeal and durability of natural stone aggregate. Rubber-gravel mix can be used as a base underneath products like wet pour, artificial grass or bound gravel, or as a stand-alone surface. Porous and slip resistant, rubber-gravel mix allows for sustainable drainage in cities, towns and the countryside.

Whispercast is a proprietary system for the controlled production of in-situ exposed aggregate pavement finishes. As part of the COLCHEM (Colours and Chemicals for Concrete) division of Hardscape Resourcing Limited, the concept aims to provide everything contractors and designers might need to achieve visually attractive and durable in-situ concrete hardstanding. At the core of the system is the Hebau range of self-neutralising top surface retarders which ensure a pre-determined depth of aggregate reveal. Almost as important as consistent depth of aggregate exposure is the protection of the surface after exposure. Deeply penetrating dirt and stain-resistant protective coatings form part of the system, enabling low maintenance and long-term durability of the finish. There are two major techniques involved in the production of Whispercast: Whispercast Rustique and Whispercast Surface Seeding. • Whispercast Rustique Whispercast Rustique involves exposure of the aggregate within the concrete. Controlling aggregate distribution within the mix is critical for consistent appearance at the surface and the means to achieve this is built into the system. • Whispercast Surface Seeding Whispercast Surface Seeding involves broadcasting of decorative aggregate into the concrete surface, before exposure. This is usually required where the decorative aggregate selected is not generic, so on economic grounds this offers the potential for a much wider selection of aggregate finish options.

Surface protection and maintenance is essential for long-term durability and appearance of the decorative finish. The Whispercast system incorporates a full range of protective coatings, providing UV, freeze/thaw and water-repellent protection in addition to dirt and stain resistance.

Colour addition to in-situ concrete provides an aesthetic improvement of hardstanding at a modest cost. Typical hard landscape surfaces where this is used include commercial pavements or roadways, and residential areas. HRL Colchem colour additives, decorative stains and surface etching treatments provide a wide portfolio of affordable, decorative options for these purposes. • Colchem Classic Landscape Colour Colchem Classic Landscape Colour is a pre-dosed UV-resistant colour addition system for readymixed and precast concrete, which ensures consistency and non-fading results. Eight standard classic landscape shades are produced, creating a warm coloured background to smooth-trowelled, broom-lined, sponge-textured or any traditional concrete finishes. The same system is used as a co-ordinated matrix tint for exposed aggregate pavement. • Colchem MicroETCH Colchem MicroETCH is a combination of micro retarders and etching gels producing a slipresistant decorative surface which is granular in appearance. Surfaces are etched to a depth of 0.50–1.0mm, slightly exposing the underlying aggregate, adding light and shade to the colour conditioned concrete slab.

Colchem Sienna is a finishing stain which reacts with free lime in concrete surfaces to create a permanent, variegated, natural mineral-coloured effect. There are eight standard shades, which can be applied to grey, white or coloured concrete, extending the colour palette accordingly. • Colchem Sorrento penetrating stains Colchem Sorrento is a penetrating stain available in a wide selection of colours, including an economic means of adding green and blue shades onto concrete. Stocked in eight standard colours (with a further 16 shades available to order), they are designed to be semi-translucent and offer a unique choice of coloured effects, which can range from subtle to striking. • Colorfresh and Colortec MAX Colorfresh Intensiv, Colorfresh Effect and Colortec MAX are compatible ranges of three penetrating protective coatings, available in satin sheen, matt, ‘wet’ look or invisible finishes. The stains all provide additional UV protection and dirt/staining resistance to concrete, which helps it to maintain its appearance and reduce maintenance demands. The protective coating range also includes Prowall 11, a sacrificial, anti-graffiti coating for applications where this added protection might be considered necessary.

Kinley Systems offers a range of composite decking and porcelain paving tiles. • Terrafina decking boards Terrafina decking boards are made from a wood polymer composite that provides long-lasting stability, durability and aesthetic appearance. The boards have a hard-wearing and contemporary finish and can resolve the maintenance and performance issues that are associated with natural timber. The clip fitting design means that virtually no screws are required for installation. Terrafina has good non-slip and non-combustible properties, making it ideal for use in schools, restaurants and other public areas, as well as leisure and residential developments. The composite substructure of Terrafina provides a fixing system that requires virtually no screws. This makes the decking faster to install and virtually maintenance-free. As an almost inert product, the deck board will not split, warp, sustain the growth of algae, rot or need any extensive maintenance. • Atria paving tiles Atria porcelain paving tiles are suitable for external and internal use. Seven styles and a number of colour variations are available. As well as having attractive aesthetics, the external tiles achieve high anti-slip ratings, are frost-resistant and easy to install. Atria tiles are available in a 20mm thickness for external use and a 10mm thickness for internal use, allowing matching flooring on a balcony or terrace application to be created. The Atria range includes a large number of accessory parts for step areas and edges. • Support pedestals Complementary adjustable pedestal systems, VersiJack® and SpiraPave®, can be used to provide adjustment from 12mm up to over 1m.

SAiGE supplies high-quality composite fencing and decking products for residential and commercial applications. The company provides the landscaping industry with a versatile and durable product which is also quick to install. Composite decking is an environmentally sourced alternative to traditional timber decking, which looks and cuts just like wood. It will not rot, warp or splinter, and does not require sanding, painting or sealing. In addition, the decking has a low water absorption rate (approximately 0.5%) and is resistant to heat, woodworm, fungi and mould. • Contemporary decking The Contemporary range of decking from SAiGE is available with hollow or solid cores. The hollow range is more suitable for residential use, but due to its thicker wall structures it can also be used for light commercial applications. • Rustic decking Rustic is a range of solid core decking suitable for either commercial or domestic projects. It has a more traditional, weathered wood-like appearance than the contemporary range, but with all the advantages of composite decking.

Stone Fence™ is comprised of twin welded wire mesh panels manufactured from at least 90% British and European steel. The panels provide a container for infill material such as pebbles, stone, broken bricks and other natural fillings. The infill provides a natural haven for insects and wildlife, and can be planted to reduce environmental impact on projects. This makes it popular for playgrounds, parks and housing developments.

Dimensions Heights of 650 to 2405mm can be achieved at 200mm intervals. CLD recommends a minimum diameter of 75mm for the infill material. Heights over 1450mm require root-fixing with a strip foundation (non-load-bearing). Heights of 1450mm and below require a 400x200 strip footing (non-load-bearing).

Finish and appearance Hot-dip galvanising is the recommended finishing. However, elements can also be polyester powder coated in a wide range of RAL colours.

They can be complemented with a choice of finials, or with a mitred end finish. Apex are stylish vertical bar railings that are manufactured using no welded parts. Each panel has hollow vertical bar infill that is fixed into place on a horizontal RHS tube. Holloway railings use decorative circles, welded between the top two horizontal steels, to give a distinctive, refined look and an overall feel of continuation and longevity. Barcode railings provide perimeters with a bespoke feel. Each panel can be designed as barcode that can be visually scanned to read a particular word, such as the name of a school. Bushberry railings are a stylish alternative to vertical bar railings. By adding a mid-rail, the number of vertical bars in the upper section of the panel is reduced, creating an aesthetically pleasing feature. • Bow-top railings Traditional bow-top railings are available in varying heights and bar gauges and offer good through visibility.

This design has gained various security accreditations including CPNI and Secured by Design. • Lochrin Classic™ Lochrin Classic™ is a rivetless steel palisade fencing system with a patented V slot design that allows upright pales to pass through the rails rather than bolting to the front face. It can be raked over slopping ground conditions and has an aesthetically pleasing design. • Lochrin Defender™ Lochrin Defender™ is a high-security palisade fencing system. After undergoing independent attack tests by BRE, the patent-pending design entered into the RED BOOK, successfully achieving LPS1175 SR3 rating.

The product utilises Lochrin Bain’s patented Combi™ design, allowing all vertical pales to ‘pass through’ the horizontal rails prior to being fixed in place by security fasteners. This provides excellent resistance to leverage or removal, which is typically the weak point in traditional palisade fences. The system is manufactured to comply with BS1722-12:2006. • Lochrin MeshGUARD™ Lochrin MeshGUARD™ rigid mesh panel systems are used for demarcation and as boundary fencing. Panels are held in stock and are suitable for use as sports fencing applications and for protecting commercial buildings.

SmogStop® Barrier is the world’s first roadside pollution barrier proven to significantly reduce noise and hazardous NOx (nitrogen oxide) and VOC (volatile organic carbon) emissions. The system has no moving parts and does not require electricity. It works in both visible and UV light.

Operation SmogStop® Barrier reduces air pollution in two ways. Firstly, the patented aerodynamic design disperses pollution. Secondly, the patented photocatalytic coating on the barrier breaks down the VOCs and NOx compounds, transforming them into harmless by-products. SmogStop® Barrier also effectively reduces noise pollution.

Technical data 1km of SmogStop® Barrier has been shown to remove approximately 16 tonnes of NOx per year. Average NOx removal has been shown to be 58% more than a standard barrier.

AUTOPA manufactures height restrictors and swing gates to help control vehicular access to car parks, commercial and industrial sites. • Height restrictors AUTOPA Height Restrictors are designed for use on industrial, commercial and public realm sites to prevent high-sided vehicles such as HGVs or caravans from accessing areas. They provide a practical and durable method of access control. AUTOPA Height Restrictors have a standard height clearance of 2.05m, with other heights available to order. Single spans are available up to 7.0m. Swing gates can be added to height restrictors to further secure areas outside operating hours. • Swing gates AUTOPA Swing Gates are an easy-to-use, costeffective and durable solution for securing site entrances and car parks outside operating hours. Swing gates are available in a range of widths and are ready to use immediately once installed. Safety features incorporated as standard include a self-latching catch post, short leading edge beam and a low bottom edge. These features reduce the chance of a gate swinging open unexpectedly and decrease the risk of injury should it do so. Gates can be locked in both open and closed positions with a padlock – a second catch post is required to secure the gate in the open position. Swing gates can be supplied separately or with height restrictors.

For over 30 years, Heald has been protecting some of the world’s most high-profile locations from hostile vehicle attacks. Heald is an awardwinning innovator in the field of perimeter technology, and one of the largest designers and manufacturers of quality security equipment in the UK. Their product range includes roadblockers, security bollards, rising arm barriers, speed and height restrictors. • Roadblockers Commander is a deep-mount roadblocker tested to the highest standards. It is the only security barrier PAS 68 tested to stop a 30 tonne truck travelling at 80kph (50mph) with zero penetration – the unit remained fully operational after the crash test. Viper is a shallow-mount roadblocker which, due to its ingenious design, only requires an excavation depth of 400mm. Viper has also been crash tested to both PAS 68 and ASTM standards to halt a 7.5 tonne truck @ 80kph (50mph). • Automatic bollard/blocker Raptor is a shallow-mounted bollard that can have hydraulic, electro mechanical or manual operation. Tested to PAS 68 and ASTM standards, Raptor stopped a 7.5 tonne truck travelling at 80kph (50mph) and operated afterwards. • Surface-mounted sliding bollards The Matador range is available with either three, four or six bollards and comes with a variety of operations. The HT3-Electro Mechanical Matador has been IWA crash tested to halt an 18 tonner (7.2 tonne) N3C vehicle @ 64kph (40mph). The HT3-EM Matador continued to operate after impact. • High-security bollards Evo has a unique design that allows it to be installed at a depth only slightly greater than the height of the actual bollard itself, with no loss of protection.

AUTOPA Stealth Parking Posts – galvanised steel

AUTOPA patented the first parking post in 1959 and has been manufacturing them in the UK ever since. AUTOPA parking posts provide a simple and cost-effective way to secure individual parking spaces from unauthorised users. All parking post are lockable in the up and down positions. There are three locking options for the Hinged Parking Post and the Stealth Parking Post: 1. Randomly keyed – posts have different locks. 2. Identically keyed – posts are keyed to the same key number. 3. Master Suited – posts are randomly keyed, but can be unlocked using a master key. • AUTOPA Hinged Parking Post The AUTOPA Hinged Parking Post was patented in 1959, and 60 years on, is one of the preferred choices for protecting individual parking spaces throughout Britain. The reliable design guarantees parking spaces will be available when required; the reflective, highvisibility band ensures parking posts are seen. It is available in a galvanised, galvanised and coated, or stainless steel finish. • AUTOPA Stealth Parking Post The Stealth Parking Post has all the benefits of the original Hinged Parking Post but with the further advantage of a fully flush to ground level socket. When lowered, the post disappears into its integrated socket and is covered by the integral lid. It is available in a galvanised, galvanised and coated, or stainless steel finish. • AUTOPA TOPLOK Parking Post TOPLOK is the padlockable variant of the original Hinged Parking Post. Round and square designs are available. TOPLOK parking posts can be supplied in a galvanised, galvanised and coated, or stainless steel (round only) finish. • Sprung Boundary Post The Sprung Boundary Post is designed to mark the edges of car parking spaces. The base has a spring that enables it to absorb low speed impacts, deflect up to 30 degrees from vertical and return to its original position. It is available in a galvanised or galvanised and coated finish.

AUTOPA telescopic posts and automatic bollards are used to control vehicular access to sites. • RetractaPost RetractaPost is a range of manually-operated retractable and telescopic posts, suitable for commercial and residential use. Posts are manufactured from galvanised mild steel or stainless steel in a wide range of round or square tube sizes. Two locking options are available: the original RetractaPost is locked using a separate padlock, and the RetractaPost GL uses a high-security 7 pin integrated lock to secure the posts. To minimise trip risk, RetractaPost is lowered into its integrated socket when not in use. All RetractaPosts are manually operated with liftassist available on larger bollards to help users safely raise and lower the posts. • Automatic bollards The AUTOPA Automatic Bollard is designed for commercial and residential projects where aesthetics are important and the objective is to control vehicular access without impeding pedestrians. Powered by an efficient hydraulic system, they can be used intensively at all temperatures and in all weather conditions. Automatic bollards are available in stainless or mild steel in diameters of 127 or 275mm and heights of 600 or 800mm. To ensure that vehicles cannot pass between bollards AUTOPA recommends that they are spaced no more than 1.2m apart. The bollards can be customised further with the addition of optional features such as LED lights, RAL colour-coating and traffic lights. AUTOPA Automatic Bollards are compatible with a variety of control mechanisms including remote controls, keypads and swipe cards.

AUTOPA manufactures an extensive range of bollards and posts in stainless steel and galvanised mild steel at its Rugby works. AUTOPA bollards are used around pedestrian precincts, pavements, play and parking areas, as part of traffic calming measures and as a deterrent to ram-raiders. Most designs are available flanged, ragged or removable to suit ground conditions on site. • Galvanised mild steel posts and bollards AUTOPA mild steel bollards are suitable for a wide range of applications. All are galvanised as standard to ensure longevity and can be coated to any standard RAL or BS colour. Outside diameters range from 48 to 406mm, with the most popular diameters held in stock for short lead times. • Stainless steel posts and bollards AUTOPA stainless steel bollards are suitable for contemporary, high-quality applications. They are manufactured in grade 304 and grade 316 stainless steel. Outside diameters range from 60 to 204mm. • Ornamental bollards Attractive, robust and long-lasting, AUTOPA’s GFC ornamental bollards combine the strength of steel with the design benefits of cast iron. They are made from mild steel tube with decorative cast iron rings and caps. Ornamental bollards are galvanised or galvanised and coated to any standard BS or RAL colour. Other options include the addition of eyelets, hooks and chains. • Reinforced bollards AUTOPA reinforced bollards are designed to protect perimeters on busy commercial and retail sites. All have a strong galvanised mild steel core over which an external sleeve is fitted. The addition of the core strengthens the bollard, increasing its resistance to ram-raiders, a quality that is amplified when the core is filled with concrete. Sleeves are available in galvanised mild steel, stainless steel and hardwearing MDPE. Available ragged only for ground fixing.

The inspiration for the Arlo brand came about when Arlo Green Design saw the innovative and original designs coming from Irish designers. Most of these designers were not involved in the street furniture business but were able to turn their talents to most industrial design projects with an equal amount of flair. This first collection of urban elements features the work of Davin Larkin, a lecturer in furniture design at The Irish National Centre of Excellence for Furniture Design in Letterfrack in the West of Ireland. His proposals for this first volume of work show the scope of his design abilities and reflect the young and contemporary profile of the population of Ireland. The company is pleased to supply the new range with Davin’s work and looks forward to working with him and other inspired Irish designers as the range expands.

The planters’ integral reservoirs also reduce the amount of water required. This means that flower displays in Amberol planters require less maintenance than traditional systems.

VersiWall™ GP is a versatile, easy-to-install and low maintenance modular vertical greening system which offers architects and developers a cost-effective method of turning monotonous walls into aesthetically-pleasing living plant walls. The system is based on a planting tray that fits either two plants in 4” nursery pots, or it can be used for direct planting. Several tray mounting options are available (propriety panels, weld mesh, rods or steel wire) to suit wall conditions and minimise wall penetrations. Six universal anchoring points on each tray enable safe, easy installation by just one person. Trays can also be arranged in a variety of horizontal and vertical spacing to provide flexibility in planting density and layout. Trays can be individually replaced or removed for maintenance or design change, while anti-lift arms prevent inadvertent dislodgement of trays.

Composition and manufacture VersiWall™ GP is made from UV-stabilised recycled polypropylene, meeting the criteria for international “Green Building” certification.

B and B Innovations believes it is one of the few bin designers to offer a ‘complete built’ outdoor litter bin made from 2mm 316 stainless steel. All bins can be ‘dressed’ to suit individual locations, which the company describes as their ‘Unique Point of Difference’. A technically simple but aesthetically pleasing design. Using premium grade materials, including stainless steel fixtures and fittings, allowing exceptional operational life.

Finish and appearance Bins are available polished or powder-coated to any RAL colour. The body of the bins can also hold corporate branding and logos, and can be ‘dressed’ using a wide range of materials, including timber, metals and plastics, as well as recycled and many off-the-shelf constituents. Clear tubes can also be incorporated and filled with almost anything from nuts, bolts and coffee beans to wrapping paper, sweets and LEGO®.

Bins will not corrode and have a long service life

Installation and maintenance Bins supplied can be fixed to walls and posts, or can be free-standing with an optional ground anchor. Due to the high-quality build, the bins will not corrode and any maintenance will be minimal. If during its long service life the body of the bin needs to be refurbished (‘re-dressed’), this can be quickly and inexpensively completed.

Fountains Direct Ltd supplies millstone and boulder fountain kits. • Millstone fountains Millstone fountains provide attractive, relatively inexpensive features that are easy to maintain. Self-contained, the packages allow water to be introduced into an environment without the need to install space-consuming water surfaces. Externally they can be used to great effect in courtyards, patios and gardens. Internally they can be used in hotels, offices, leisure centres and hospitals to liven up foyers and entrance areas. • Boulder fountains Boulder fountains are similar to the millstone fountains, using a large boulder in place of a millstone. They form an attractive, self-contained feature that can be easily installed and maintained in external and internal locations in hotels, offices, leisure centres, hospitals, courtyards, patios and gardens.

Composition and manufacture Millstones are made from aerated, lightweight concrete as standard, or in natural stone to order. All boulders are natural stone, sourced from standard quarry stocks.

Established in 1995, DCM Surfaces is a national surfacing contractor delivering a range of play surfaces for new build and renovation projects, including wet pour, artifical grass, sports surfaces, rubber mulch and rubber-gravel mix. • Wet pour rubber crumb A play surface made of granulated rubber crumb, ideal for surfaces requiring impact protection such as playgrounds and play areas in schools, nurseries and public spaces. The surface has passed comprehensive testing criteria which includes critical fall height, flammability, abrasive wear and indentation. Its porous surface makes it suitable for year-round use, and a wide range of colours, shapes and play features, including mounds, can be produced. • Rubber mulch A hard-wearing, bound rubber shredded surface. Ideal for play areas requiring impact protection and awkward or unusual areas of landscaping. Mulch requires no formal groundworks or raised edging, so it can be used to cover over almost any existing surface, including problematic grass mats or artificial turf, mounds, tree pits, gravel, paving and old bark pits, or to overlay damaged or worn out wet pour. • Artificial grass Artificial grass is soft, hygienic and easy to maintain, and is often used as an alternative play surface to traditional grass. A shock pad rubber base is installed beneath the grass at varied depths depending on whether play equipment is present. Artificial grass is porous and can be used all year round, making it ideal for both school and public playgrounds. The grass can be used effectively as a cover for mounds and slopes.

Verde Sports supplies and fits synthetic turf systems for cricket facilities. These give schools, local authorities and clubs lower maintenance surfaces than conventional pitches, and offer safe, consistent performance. Two types of base design are offered, both approved by the ECB. • Test Match base design Test Match systems have a hard porous aggregate laid over a consolidated stone base. This gives the pitch playing characteristics that alter with the climate and the compaction of the base. Rolling compacts the base to increase pace and bounce, while watering softens it to achieve the opposite effect. A geotextile lining and AP10 Shockpad reduce maintenance and improve longevity. • Premier base design Premier systems have factory formed underlays laid over a stone base. These spreads the load, minimising variations in base compaction and increasing ball bounce. They limit the effects of changes in climate, and provide high consistency.

Synthetic turf systems for cricket facilities

Design services Verde Sports draws on the 30 years’ experience of its director Peter Dury. A former ECB non-turf pitch consultant, Peter advises on the design of new facilities and renovation of existing pitches.

The land is open, flat and virtually stone free, and the rich, sandy loam is well supplied with adequate levels of irrigation. The company uses state-of-the-art drilling, maintenance and harvesting equipment to ensure quality and efficiency at every stage. This is backed up by Intuf’s extensive experience and technical expertise.

Turf grades Masters Turf is a fine-leaved turfgrass which is an excellent surface for golf, bowling greens and ornamental landscapes. Comprising 100% fescue, it gives a dense, consistent sward with the fineness of leaf that is normally expected of a high quality turfgrass.

Seed lots tested for purity and germination

Germinal, formerly British Seed Houses, is a privately owned company established in 1825. It is the only company selling British-bred turf grasses direct to the end user. The range includes professional grass seed mixtures and fertilisers for greenkeepers, groundsmen, landscape contractors and landscape architects. Applications include golf courses, sports fields and landscaping. • Grass seed mixtures Germinal’s Grade ‘A’ range of landscaping, sports and golf mixtures comprises seed mixes from carefully maintained cultivars that are rigorously tested for purity and germination. These mixtures are used by some of the UK’s top groundsmen, greenkeepers and landscape professionals. • Wildflower mixtures The company offers the Regional Environmental (RE) and General Landscaping Wild Flora (WF) ranges. Most mixes feature only UK-native wild flora but, to meet demand, two mixtures have been created that include non-native species: WF17 Cultivated Annuals gives a display throughout summer where maximum visual impact is required. WF19 Pollinators’ Paradise is highly attractive to bees and other pollinators. All mixtures that contain flowers have been deemed ‘Perfect for Pollinators’ by the Royal Horticultural Society (RHS). • Sustainable slow-release fertilisers With standard compound fertilisers, it is generally accepted that 60% of nitrogen is lost through leaching and volatisation into the atmosphere, so a high spreading rate is required to compensate. Floranid slow-release fertilisers incorporate IBDU nitrogen (isobutylidene diurea), which has very limited cold water solubility and can be fully utilised by the grass without leaching. It can be spread at lower rates and less frequently than other fertilisers, saving man hours and preventing damage to the environment. • Agrosil LR phosphate Phosphate has a strong stimulating effect on root growth and is highly beneficial to the establishment of all plants including grass, trees and shrubs. However, it is quickly fixed in the soil and becomes unavailable to plants. Agrosil LR keeps phosphate completely available and carries it down to a depth of 30cm. It improves soil structure and promotes greater drainage, gas exchange and good health in even the poorest soils, as well as sandy rootzones, compost and manufactured soils. The silicate gels of Agrosil LR absorb heavy metals such as lead or cadmium so they can no longer be taken up by the plant, enabling growth on contaminated sites. Agrosil LR also facilitates growth on road verges that are subject to large quantities of salt.

Lindum offers pre-grown wildflower turf for use in parks, gardens and golf courses. Lindum wildflower turf mats are a balanced mixture of wildflowers, herbs and perennial plants. Plants are grown in a moisture-retentive carrier and sown at the correct density for optimum establishment to give a high proportion of flowers, and therefore interest, colour and biodiversity. Mats are easy to lay and can be rolled out on flat surfaces, or pegged to steep slopes for bank stabilisation. • Lindum Wildflower turf Lindum Wildflower turf is a mixture of wildflowers, herbs and flowering perennials. Developed to respond to more varied and extreme climatic conditions, the plants in the mix are chosen for their visual attractiveness and drought-tolerant properties. It also benefits wildlife by providing valuable nectar sources, attracting butterflies, bees and other insects. The plants in flower can vary during the season and from year to year as the mixture adapts to the soil type, rainfall and temperature. The soil in which the plants are established determines the type of wildflowers that will flourish. • Bespoke mixtures Special mixtures to suit individual soil types can be grown to order for large-scale areas.

Root Barrier C3 protects structures and services from tree root damage and controls the spread of invasive plant species such as Japanese knotweed, giant hogweed, mares tail and bamboo. Typical applications include tree pits, foundations and service channels.

Properties Made from triple coated and twin reinforced polyethylene, Root Barrier C3 offers the strength and durability of a ground engineering fabric and the puncture resistance of a geomembrane. The fabric conforms to all the criteria required by the Environment Agency code of practice and offers a cost-effective and quick alternative to the excavation and transportation off site of soil infested with invasive weeds. Root Barrier C3 has a life expectancy of over 50 years, which is an important recommended requirement by the Environment Agency because the Japanese knotweed rhizome can remain dormant for at least 20 years. The fabric is UV stabilised and highly resistant to natural acids, alkalis, bacteria and fungi.

Dimensions Root Barrier C3 can be supplied in rolls up to 4x100m long to reduce laps.

Contact Colin Holmes t: 01962 882020 sales@greengridsystems.com Web www.greengridsystems.com

Green Grid’s RootBridge is designed to protect tree root systems where new developments such as walkways, steps and car parking areas are planned close to existing trees. With a low structure height from 75mm, it requires minimal excavation and can easily be retrofitted. Once installed, it protects the existing root range from harmful pressures which can lead to soil compaction, loss of aeration, drainage problems and, ultimately, the death of the tree. The system meets both local authority demands for no-dig tree root protection and engineers’ demands for a reliable solution.

System overview RootBridge is a modular steel lattice construction that sits on screwed-in foundations. Foundation screws are inserted between the roots up to approximately 2m into the soil. Subsequent loads are absorbed by the structure rather than the soil and the tree roots. The structure is engineered to withstand upward pressure from tree roots.

GreenBlue’s sustainable urban drainage system – ArborFlow – has been developed as an effective and environmentally robust means of managing surface water run-off. The system is particularly suitable for urban areas where space is restricted.

Installation Step 1: RootSpace™ is a lightweight, easily assembled load-bearing soil support system. Step 2: vertical panels are set out interconnected and squared by adding the air deck lids to the perimeter. Step 3: ArborFlow panels are designed for both root direction and water attenuation. Step 4: the panels and corners can be assembled to create the specified tree pit size. Step 5: for larger tree pits, extra air deck lids are added to ensure the structure remains square. Step 6: soil filling is applied from the top in 150mm layers, lightly firmed by foot. Step 7: ArborFlow tree pit surround with porous resin is added, giving additional permeability. Step 8: Acer campestre trees are planted and final soil added.

Water flows from paved surface, into ArborFlow collector.

Large debris is filtered by grille top and internal leaf guard.

Water flows into the reservoir and is vented through panel walls and base.

...then into the StrataCell or RootSpace system, percolating into the tree root zone.

Projects The above installation steps are an example of a project where eight trees provided a minimum combined stormwater capacity of 19,511 litres.

An ISO 9001:2015 accredited company, Platipus® Anchors Ltd designs and manufactures tree anchoring and irrigation systems for the landscape industry. Platipus invented the first tree anchoring system, with no unsightly stakes or guy wires, more than 35 years ago. Due to continuous innovation, the company has developed a range of solutions for all planting situations with trees up to 20m high. • Rootball fixing system – Plati-Mat® The Platipus® rootball fixing system, including Plati-Mat®, is a popular method of securing rootballed, containerised and airpot-grown semi-mature trees. Its benefits include ease and speed of installation, planting at the nursery line, a lack of unsightly timber stakes or guy wires, more secure fixing and better root establishment. The system naturally degrades after 3–5 years to allow unrestricted root growth. • D-MAN® system – Plati-Mat® The award-winning D-MAN® is a strong, compact and lightweight system primarily designed to replace the traditional deadman where there are buried services or shallow soils. D-MAN® can be used individually or in multiples and units simply lock/unlock together. It has a distinctive letterbox style wire tendon anchor point and a unique cup for water storage. Units are easily stackable for building up large planting areas and can be used to protect roof planting from damage. D-MAN® is made from recycled plastic and is completely nestable, allowing for compact transportation. • Piddler® tree irrigation system Drought stress remains one of the biggest contributors to high mortality rates of transplanted trees in the first few years of establishment. Piddler® is a special membrane that delivers water and air directly to a tree’s rootzone, helping to ensure tree growth and sustainability. Piddler® supplies water evenly all around the rootball, drenching the soil laterally. Unlike traditional systems, Piddler® reduces waste and keeps water from evaporating, running off and escaping in to the bottom of the tree pit. Quick to assemble and tailor to size, it is used for all rootball diameters. Its lightweight design also allows significant freight cost savings over traditional pipe systems. • Traditional deadman system Developed to satisfy the requirements of a specialist market, the deadman system has enabled Platipus to offer effective solutions for planting in challenging urban environments. The systems use kerbstones or sleepers as anchor points and providing that the soil placed on top of the kerbstones or sleepers has been well compacted before placing the tree in the pit, the systems offer an effective method of securing rootball trees up to 12m high. Also see D-MAN® as an award-winning alternative.

DekorGrip Tree Surround surfacing protects trees and their roots. A resin bound aggregate, this system is usually made with a larger stone than traditional resin bound surfacing. As the stone is bound together very little material is migrated away from the tree pit making it maintenancefree, and avoiding nuisance to pedestrians from loose stones. The DekorGrip Tree Surround system is also SuDScompliant and water still reaches the bed of the tree and its roots.
