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.
