StormTree introduces its new sustainable stormwater management system for the urban landscape.
- Designed for sidewalks, plazas, parking lots, roof runoff
- Configured in multiple dimensions; narrow profile
- Unlimited choice of shrubs and perennials
- Virtually weed free and maintenance friendly
Rain gardens and bioretention cells provide tremendous benefit by allowing rainwater runoff from impervious surfaces such as streets, sidewalks, parking lots, and building roofs the opportunity to be absorbed while providing pollutant removal capabilities.
However, these systems typically require labor intensive maintenance to maintain their ability to effectively infiltrate stormwater runoff. If not regularly maintained, sand and sediment can quickly clog these systems; organic mulches decompose and allow weeds to grow, overtake and crowd out the ornamental plants.
