Aeration & Irrigation Systems

  • ROOTRAIN Civic 1 - diameter 895mm
    By far the biggest contributor to the high mortality rates suffered by urban trees is drought stress. Water is vital for the growth of trees. It is not only required for all the biochemical requirements for growth photosynthesis, respiration and transport, but also mechanical support to leaf and stem tissue. Insufficient (or inefficient) watering will result in loss of leaf turgor and consequent reduction in new shoot extension. Eventually this will lead to die-back and, if not remedied, the loss of the tree. Waiting until the tree shows signs of drought stress before watering is known as ‘reactive’ irrigation. Whilst this might keep the tree alive, it will often result in stem die-back and possibly long term structural defects in the tree. Research has shown that trees irrigated ‘proactively’ i.e. by implementing a regular watering regime, have over three times the weight of new roots growing into backfill soil material compared to those watered ‘reactively’.
    The RootRain Civic system is a very well proven large capacity irrigation system which has a vandal resistant inlet with a powder
    coated aluminium cap on a retainer chain. Popular with landscape architects and contractors, the Civic has been widely used on projects demanding a high level of specification.
    Benefits
    • Large capacity 60mm watering circuit.
    • Vented aluminium cap on retainer chain.
    • Prevents fines entering irrigation system.
    • Quick and easy to install.

    The RootRain Precinct is for central urban locations requiring a permanent irrigation/aeration solution. The RootRain Precinct ‘grille type’ has been specially designed to interlock with our ‘Arborsystem’ range of tree grilles. This provides a tamper resistant system which will also prevent the inlet sinking subgrade with any potential soil settlement around the tree.
    Benefits
    • Heavy cast LM6 grade aluminium/bronze inlet – withstands high loads.
    • Cast aluminium/bronze vent lid permanently attached to inlet by stainless steel fitting.
    • Lid lifts and swings to one side for fast irrigation.
    • New grille version inlet which twistlocks into Aborgreen’s range of cast iron tree grilles.
    • Can be used in conjunction with Arboresin porous bound gravel.

    A large capacity irrigation system with a fixed non-removable grid inlet. The grid allows water and air through but prevents ingress of litter and debris. The RootRain Urban is particularly suited to roadside verge and open space
    tree planting. The inlets are trimmer resistant and can be set below mowing machine height. They have very little vandal appeal and no theft value, making them ideal for housing estates and public areas.
    Benefits
    • Large capacity 60mm watering circuit.
    • Easy and quick installation.
    • Cost effective on the largest or smallest schemes.
    • Extremely vandal resistant.
    • Discreet and unobtrusive appearance.
