Managing Stormwater

We make managing stormwater easy, while helping trees grow

Smart, affordable stormwater management for green-blue cities

Water is one of our most precious commodities, but the global supply is diminishing. In warm climates like Arizona, Nevada, California and Australia, water scarcity is real. As demand for water increases, so does the need for stormwater management and irrigation technologies. In recent years, we’ve seen a huge increase in the number of planners, architects and engineers seeking landscape solutions that conserve natural resources. That’s where Citygreen comes in.

Our revolutionary range of stormwater management solutions includes water harvesting tree pit systems, rain troughs and surface drains that make it easier –and more affordable–to manage and re-use stormwater.

“Cost-effective and simple to install.”
–Justin Pay, Civil Engineering Manager from Inverell Shire Council

Why build green-blue cities?

In the past, urban planners have treated “green” assets (trees, parks and gardens) and “blue” assets (water) separately. However, when cities combine green and blue infrastructure using Water Sensitive Urban Design (WSUD), they can achieve multiple objectives:

At Citygreen, we help you achieve all this and more. We even go one step further by putting harvested water to good use with our unique Strataflow treepit system.

Leverage stormwater with Strataflow

Most people know that stormwater can be used to irrigate trees. But did you know that treepit soil can be used for stormwater treatment and management? Or that trees can directly reduce stormwater runoff by capturing rainfall in their canopy?

The link between managing stormwater and promoting healthy tree growth is strong, and we leverage this with Strataflow–our innovative water harvesting solution.Adapted from our leading structural soil cell system, Strataflow intercepts water at the source. By capturing stormwater as it hits the pavement, then directing it into structural soil vaults, Strataflow delivers water to trees in the same way as nature. It’s the ultimate dual-purpose solution for modern, green-blue cities.

“The structural integrity of the cell holds up the concrete above. It doesn’t allow the roots to get out of the cell zone and start interfering with stormwater.”
–Barry Heffer,Regional Manager (North Queensland) from NaturForm

“Our experience, in working with a Citygreen Design Studio was second to none. We found responses from the design studio to be very timely, and technically thorough. We went backwards and forwards a number of times, looking at different iterations of the design and, nothing was too much trouble to examine and explore different possibilities. I would highly recommend the Citygreen Design Studio to any future client considering using your services.”
