Water storage close to the roots
The 7 cm long LITE-STRIPS make dense soil more permeable and serve mainly as water storage and substrate improvement. For this purpose, the thick fleece strips are mixed into the soil to root depth (depending on the application, between 2 and 10 % volume for planters or 0.5 - 1.0 l/m² for lawns). Up to 90 % of the fleece volume can be filled with water, thus helping plants to survive longer dry periods.
Depending on the variant – biodegradable or non-biodegradable – LITE-STRIPS can be used in a wide variety of applications, especially for plant troughs, rolled turf, green roofs, sports fields, lawns, raised planting beds and aerification.
Optimum results, scientifically confirmed: Together with the University of Natural Resources and Applied Life Sciences, Vienna (BOKU), we have carried out several test trials which confirm the advantages: LITE-STRIPS mixed into the soil have a water storage capacity per kg that is 8 times higher than clay pellets (LECA).
In the case of green roofs, one important property of our products comes to the fore: the light weight of our products. As our geotextiles consist of 90 % open, interconnected air voids, our products can absorb about 8 times more water per kg than conventional products (e.g. LECA).
Simply mixed into the soil, LITE-STRIPS act as a water reservoir and to loosen the soil.
For trees, approx. 10-20 l are mixed into the tree pit as a water reservoir.
