Tree Friendly City

As urban areas grow, so does the need to keep the soil underneath pavement and concrete hydrated for trees that line our city streets and sidewalks. This large-scale redesign features  walkways with grooves that direct water to strategically placed drains that carry water directly to the vegetation’s roots. A system of deep gutters also feeds rainfall directly to the soil surrounding trees placed at the same level as the lowest part of the gutter.
