  • Compaction testing kits available
  • Regular testing to maintain quality

Green-tree Amenity Tree Soil Applications

This product should only be used in situations where a compact soil structure is absolutely unavoidable. In order for the rootzone to be successfully implemented, adequate drainage is a must. Green-tree Amenity Tree Soil should be used in conjunction with the Mona
Landscape Irrigation range for the future irrigation of the urban tree planting. Consideration must be given to positive drainage to ensure water can move away successfully from the soil profile. Please refer to drainage engineer for design of drainage.

Green-tree Amenity Tree Soil Installation

Amenity Tree Soil is a structural and load bearing soil suitable for all tree planting applications in hard landscaped areas. This product should only be installed in situations where a compact soil structure is absolutely unavoidable.

  • Backfill 200mm of washed sharp sand into the tree pit, compact with 3 passes of a vibro-tamper
  • Backfill the top 600mm of the tree pit with Amenity Tree Soil in 175mm layers
  • Each layer should be compacted with 3 passes of a vibro-tamper
  • Be careful not to over compact as this may lead to particle inter-packing, poor aeration, slow drainage and restricted root growth
