Planting trees in our public spaces helps make our walkways a pleasant place to be, however open or grilled tree pits can also attract various forms of litter . Midland Decorative Surfaces provides a perfect and pleasing solution for tree pits in public spaces, providing a resin bound surface that can be easily swept and kept rubbish free. Our resin bound tree pit system is available in a wide range of colours and finishes, designed to compliment any particular surroundings and due to the nature of the permeable surface, water is allowed to run freely run through the tree pit surface, negating the need to install or maintain a watering tube, and can maintain its appearance at all times with mechanical sweepers where available.
Midland Decorative Surfaces Ltd has completed an impressive range of tree pit systems throught the UK. Tree Pit systems are designed to provide an attractive and aesthetically pleasing porous paving system, using a variety of natural or recycled aggregates. Available in either Epoxy or a UV stable 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.
Tree pit installations are installed flush with the surrounding paving areas and have the added advantage of not becoming a litter trap that can occur with traditional tree grilles
Resin Bound Tree Pit surfacing is porous, allowing water to permeate/percolate through the surface and beyond when a suitable base build-up configured for SUDS (Sustainable Urban Drainage Systems) has been installed. By allowing water to pass directly through to the underlying substrate, the porous resin surface avoids the cost of having to install expensive drainage systems.
