Councils around Australia have identified a public desire for more trees, more sustainable solutions and – specifically – water sensitive urban designs. Of course, fulfilling community desires while maintaining a practical approach to high-traffic streets is challenging. But – it can be done…
Terra Firma Industries recently partnered with the City of Yarra to pioneer an innovative new tree planting system that has:
- Vastly improved the streetscape aesthetic of Smith Street, Collingwood;
- Harnessed stormwater runoff for fully sustainable tree watering;
- Improved the quality of water entering the stormwater system; and
- Significantly decreased the volume of gross pollutants entering vulnerable waterways.
