Citygreen Structural Soil Cell Systems for Greener Cities

CITYGREEN STRUCTURAL SOIL CELL SYSTEMS - HELPING TO PROVIDE HEALTHY GREENER CITIES. A well-structured soil functions like a reservoir. It enables a tree to accept, store and transmit water, nutrients, and energy, and provides room in which roots can propagate. Good soil allows the space required for life and the necessary biochemical exchanges for growth. Too often, trees are planted in cramped planting pits and poor subsoil, resulting in retarded growth, with roots tending to colonise the area immediately underneath a paved surface and causing structural pavement damage. Paved surfaces require solid, compacted ground for pedestrian movement and vehicular traffic. MetroGreen along with our partner Citygreen offers landscape architects, engineers and arborists quality soil-volume products to create structurally beneficent and strong structure systems that, while conducive to root growth, also give adequate support for pavements.
