Our Solutions

Landscaping and Tree Root Protection

At Wrekin we consider the users of tomorrow and develop systems to stand the test of time.

When it comes to landscaping and arboriculture, this is especially important as it is a way of creating an attractive and aspirational scheme that people will enjoy long into the future.

Big trees are desirable additions to developments as they have been proven to provide substantial social, economic and environmental benefits.

Landscaping and tree planting

Research has proven big trees can improve our mental health through psychological relaxation and stress alleviation, increase property values, minimise the heat island effect in towns and cities, reduce pollution and noise, provide the obvious habitat for wildlife and manage storm water run-off.

At present 50% of a world's population live in towns and cities, by 2050 this number is expected to increase to 66%. The rapid expansion of cities puts pressure on forests, landscapes and green areas.

When large green spaces are not always possible, ensuring we have the infrastructure to make our urban environment greener is vital for communities. To enable this to happen, we have a range of landscaping and tree planting products created by our experts so that you can rest assured any trees planted will be sure to flurish.

ProtectaWeb prevents damage to tree roots

Whether you're building pathways, roads, car parks or lorry parks, ProtectaWeb can provide tree root protection in all types of soils, without any digging required.

The system is simply placed on the existing ground, filled and finished with a porous surface. The cells are filled with a clean angular stone which allows drainage and aeration through the cells. Perforated cell walls provide drainage, minimising hydrostatic build up while ensuring the maximum supply of water to the tree roots, even when installed on a gradient.

Thetford Woodland Lodges

Thetford Forest is the UK’s largest man made lowland forest. It’s patchwork of pines, heathland and broadleaves provide the ideal setting for a great day out, and a welcome refuge for a rich variety of animal and plant life. Due to the weight involved, it was clear that the correct selection of ProtectaWeb™ depth was imperative to the success of the project.
