HomeGreen InfrastructureSustainable Urban Drainage (SuDs)

[:na]How is this approach best described? Closely related to Sustainable Urban Drainage Systems (SUDS) and Water Sensitive Urban Design (WSUD), Low Impact Development (LID) provides opportunities for increased amenity value and place making through the utilisation of a mixture of nature based and traditional stormwater management solutions to reduce flood risk and attenuate surface water run off.

The most robust and effective schemes are implemented when included at the very earliest stages of the design process – bringing together Civil Engineers, Landscape Architects, Architects, Arborists, and all other stakeholders to decide on the configuration and appropriate scale of LID interventions on site.

  • Mitigating Climate Change
  • Increasing Biodiversity
  • Stormwater Management
  • Improved Public Realm
  • Combating Urban Heat Island Effect
  • Health Outcomes
  • Reduced cost to public and private sectors: costs of water treatment, flood damage

How can GreenBlue Urban help?

Through consistent innovation and product development, GreenBlue Urban continues to design and manufacture LID compatible solutions for planting trees into the urban landscape. Through the use of root barriers and our modular soil cell systems, combined with our ArborFlow system, a simple tree pit is transformed into a sustainable stormwater management asset. Our systems provide the irrigation/aeration and space that the root system requires to ensure that urban trees can thrive and provide the long-term canopy cover to be efficient contributors to the SuDs train.[:gb]How is this approach best described?

How can GreenBlue Urban help?

Through consistent innovation and product development, GreenBlue Urban continue to design and manufacture SuDs compatible solutions for planting trees into the hard landscape. Through the use of our root directors, modular cell systems such as StrataCell and RootSpace, combined with our Arborflow system, a simple tree pit is transformed. Our systems provide the aeration, irrigation and space that the root system requires to ensure that urban trees can thrive and provide the long-term canopy cover to be efficient contributors to the SuDs train.[:]
