CITY OF COQUITLAM TREE PITS

The City of Coquitlam was looking for a long-term and reliable solution to their tree surround needs. Their previous application blocked the tree roots from receiving an adequate amount of water and therefore caused the roots to grow upwards and damage/shift the sidewalk. Wanting to try a better alternative, they needed a long-term solution that would allow the trees to get the water they required to prevent any damages and tripping hazards while remaining a safe and easily maintained surface that was durable enough to last for years and survive harsh weather conditions.

PRODUCT SELECTION

The top priorities were permeability, durability and simple maintenance, so selecting ROMPOX PROFI-DEKO Gravel Binder was an easy decision. The product provided the intense permeability that the trees needed to receive enough water to prevent upward root growth from damaging the surface. Because of its durable resin-bound properties, it was able to create that solid foundation the City desired to prevent against loose gravel maintenance and public safety concerns. PROFI-DEKO is also pressure washer safe allowing a simple biannual maintenance to take place and keep the surface looking stunning for years to come!
