Case Study Description

CUSP Landscape Architects consulted with a range of stakeholders and authorities who had conducted other trials before determining what application would best suit the site conditions/constraints. Key design factors:

  • Sandy free draining soils
  • Very low rainfall area
  • Ripped and recompacted verge subgrade to 1500mm depth
  • Full width pavement treatment to verge
  • Trees set back on property boundary not back of kerb
  • Value for money

Considering above, we decided that the  Treenet R750 kerb inlet with a custom ‘mini' reservoir sump was the most appropriate for the site conditions.
