Hydrorock natural aquifer blocks deal with plant health challenges, and enhance the ability of plant borders and trees to withstand wind and environmental influences in this subtropical coastal climate.
Xiamen is a coastal tourist city, with strict regulations regarding the management and maintenance of green areas such as green belts alongside roads, city gardens and other green areas. Additionally, the soil type in the area is silt, with a very low penetration rate and slow drainage speed. This has resulted in local scepticism about city greenbelt, rainwater gardens and other green city landscapes.
The Hydrorock pilot project covered a length of 100 metres and a width of 38 metres, providing effective infiltration, whilst maintaining plant conditioning and growth. The Hydrorock solution met the city’s strict regulatory criteria, was fast and straightforward to install and allows the green space to flourish in a sub-tropical, coastal, high wind climate.
