The water storage distribution net
LITE-NET is a highly water- and air-conducting LITE-NET for the ventilation and irrigation of plant roots over large areas. The fleece nets, which are simply covered with soil, can also be pulled up to the surface in places. There they absorb air and water and distribute it quickly and extensively underground at the root level. Roots can grow through the open net structure without any problems and the water storage net can be used efficiently at any level close to the roots.
For sports and playgrounds, long-term slope greening, flower beds, lawns & rolled turf, LITE-NET is usually laid at root depth (e.g. 8-15 cm). It stores and distributes water and reduces water consumption.
The prefabricated growth net is wrapped around the root ball when planting new trees. It absorbs air and rainwater on the surface and distributes it directly to the roots. The LITE-NET vegetation net can be made of sustainable polypropylene or biodegradable materials such as wood fibre or PLA. LITE-NET is used as a cost-effective replacement for the pipe systems commonly used up to now. It cannot clog or kink and transports water over a large area, efficiently and evenly to exactly where it is needed.
A combination with watering edges or irrigation bags is also ideal. The LITE-NET vegetation net ensures that the water is quickly, efficiently and evenly transported directly to the tree roots without much evaporation.
In addition, the horizontal LITE-NET distribution net, which is placed directly under the root ball, is also recommended. It serves as an additional storage tank and directs air, water and tree roots across the width. This improves the stability of the tree and directs root growth into the depth.
- large area distribution directly at the roots
- casy and quick to lay yourself
- cannot buckle or clog
- root growth is directed into the depth
For slope greening, the LITE-NET is laid out on the surface. Here too, LITE-NET combines the best of both worlds: On the one hand, it enables optimum irrigation of the embankment, which massively promotes plant growth. On the other hand, they actively prevent erosion, as the roots can grow through the net and thus increase the slope statics. The extremely flexible net adapts perfectly to the soil and promotes plant growth.
LITE-NET is also ideal in combination with spray irrigation (including the addition of LITE-CUBES as storage mulch). The layout is very simple. On steeper slopes, LITE-NET can be fixed with standard ground hooks.
The optimal results have been scientifically confirmed: Together with the University of Natural Resources and Applied Life Sciences, Vienna (BOKU), test trials were carried out to confirm the advantages:
- LITE-NET stores 6 times more water than conventional coconut matting (after 24 hours)
- The greening effect of LITE-NET is 50% higher than that of conventional coir matting
