Our Washed Tree Pit Subsoil is ideal for use in tree pits where it will help to prevent compaction around trees planted in urban environments. Classed as a ‘medium sand’ with a single grain structure and alkaline pH of 7.5, our Washed Tree Pit Subsoil has a medium sand percentage of 49%, which makes it ideal for a wide range of landscape applications where a free draining subsoil is required and is particularly suited for use as a subsoil layer for tree pits. Brownish yellow in colour with a total sand content of 98% with 2% fines, this subsoil has a narrow particle size distribution with a predominance of medium sand (0.25-0.50mm) and coarse sand (0.5-1.0mm). The sand texture creates a free-draining subsoil which offers good porosity and high permeability at 325mm/hr when in a compacted state.
This free draining, compact resistant subsoil is ideal for a wide range of landscape applications including planting larger root-balled trees, podium landscapes, or formal/high-use grass lawns. Further uses include filter medium for bioretention systems and rain gardens (ref SuDS).
