By applying Lite-Nets with a high water transmissivity the plant roots are irrigated and aerated extensively.
The void volume of each vertical rectangle- side of the nonwoven net corresponds to the cross-section of a DN 100 pipe. Due to the elasticity of the Lite-Net the surrounding soil is not compacted completely. Passing cars and strong winds even pump air into the soil. In addition, the vegetation net with roots increases the stability of the tree.
All these features replace common methods which have been used so far such as circumferential drain (pipe ventilation which does not aerate and irrigate extensively, but only linearly) in a simple and cost-effective way. Thus the Lite-Net is ideal for trees in cities!
As a start-up support for rooting the tree (planting new trees) the Lite-Net in its version of the vegetation net is placed directly around the root bales.
In addition, the Lite-Net can be inserted into the whole tree pit as a tree roots screen.
When moving large trees the Lite-Net is simply inserted extensively as a tree roots net into the tree pit and is lifted up to the surface. There it absorbs air and water in order to spread it most quickly and extensively at root level. Alternatively the Lite-Net is used as a tree roots screen.
The advantages in comparison to common pipe ventilation systems are obvious:
- Water distribution over a large area
- Cost effective
- Do it yourself: quick and easy installation
- No buckling or blocking
