Strataflow

Citygreen is the leading provider of state-of-the-art urban landscape products and services. Endorsed by professional organisations around the globe for the excellent and sustainable results they have achieved.

A revolutionary ‘hybrid’ treepit system

 

As an advanced structural soil cell system installed easily under sidewalks and parking lots, Citygreen Strataflow™ enables stormwater to be stored, filtered and distributed effectively for the benefit of urban trees, as well as for proper stormwater management.

Citygreen Strataflow™ combine the strongest structural modules on the market with stormwater management. Designed to use 100% recycled plastics along with engineered growth and filtration media, it’s the ideal sustainable tree growth system that can help you transform grey spaces into green.

Protect bodies of water from pollution run-off, prevent urban flooding and develop more livelier, greener spaces in cities.

Citygreen Strataflow™ is an innovative tree planting solution that creates expanded soil areas for healthy tree root growth and captures stormwater runoff from surrounding surfaces. It offers many advantages to urban environments and city landscapes, reducing pavement uplift and root intrusion, while providing trees sufficient irrigation.

Citygreen Strataflow™ makes it easy to sustain the healthy growth of city trees all while ensuring the effective management of flows (flood management) and filtration (pollutant removal).

It minimises pollutants entering waterways and bays and reduces flood risks by controlling the stormwater flow entering your city’s underground drains.

With Citygreen Strataflow™, you can ensure that your urban trees will thrive and stormwater management will be effective.

Strataflow™ Design Considerations

Soil surface area and volume

At Citygreen, we take into account the appropriate volume and size of the soil surface area to assure the best performance from the Strataflow™ system.

Underdrainage

To ensure your tree pit does not become waterlogged, an overflow pipe is set at 50mm above the soil surface. This keeps water at its ideal level.

Extended detention depth

We ensure there’s adequate provision for ‘ponding’ between the soil and the ground surface or suspended pavement.

Growth and Filtration media

We are particular when it comes to designing and producing the media that best suits your requirements for filtration and growth.

Number and location of tree pits

In consideration with local regulations, our team performs thorough site assessments to determine the right numbers and locations of your tree pits.

Tree species

Our experts at Citygreen recommend moderate to high water-use tree species for excellent results.

Optional add-on product

The Strataflow™ Kerb Inlet

The revolutionary Strataflow™ Kerb Inlet captures stormwater runoff from surrounding surfaces, making it easier –and more affordable–to manage and re-use stormwater.

The kerb inlet allows water from the road carriageway to flow through the front grate of the drain at a capacity of up to 18 litres per second.

Water Storage

The design also enables stormwater to be stored, filtered and distributed effectively for the benefit of urban trees.
Mounting rods included for setting the inlet, are ready for the concrete pour.

Optimal Water Flow

The body of the design is in a manifold shape, which allows for optimal water flow.
The pipe outlet socket connects with a standard 150mm/6” diameter stormwater pipes and junctions.

Flow Capture

The front grate of the Strataflow™ Kerb inlet, allows water to enter, but not urban contaminants, resulting in cleaner waterways.
Multiple units can be installed adjacent for additional flow capture.

Structural Design

Specifically engineered slope within the inlet, allows water to drain away from the carriageway, and infiltrate into the adjacent garden beds or tree pits while maintaining structural cover.
