Green-tree, the soil arm of Green-tech, has unveiled its new soils brochure covering sustainable growing media and ground preparation products for the landscape environment.

Topsoil’s, amenity tree soil, roof garden substrate, subsoil, ornamental barks, turfs and grass seed are all covered in the brochure, along with case studies demonstrating the products in use.

New products included in the brochure include the revolutionary ArborRaft Soil which when used in conjunction with the ArborRaft System provides the ideal start in life for an urban tree. The growing media is stable, prevents compaction and provides an open structure to allow the free-flow of water oxygen and nutrients. Read how this works in practice in One The Square case study, one of the most high profile projects, currently in construction in Cambridge.

Green-tree’s range of topsoil’s and growing media is one of the most comprehensive in the industry; including Intensive and Extensive Green Roof substrates, plus the ancilliary products needed to create an ideal growing environment for roof-top plants, shrubs and trees.

The new 16 page brochure is packed with all the essentials for a planting project, including green roofs and urban tree planting.  It also features drainage products, root barriers and wildflowers and highlights a number of projects where Green-tree substrates have been specified and installed, demonstrating their demand within the UK market.

Green-tree Business Manager, Mark Wood, said.

“A good quality soil, selected for its properties will make all the difference to the success of a planting project.  The new brochure highlights many examples of projects where our different soil products have been utilised with great success.”
