Tree Pit Covers & How They Benefit You

What are tree pit covers?

Tree pit covers, tree gratings or tree grates, they have an important role to play in maintaining healthy tree pit conditions. They can also be as aesthetically pleasing as they are functional and offer a high-quality visual design statement to any outdoor public project, urban theme or even your own back garden. Tree pit covers are installed at the same level as the pavement around a tree and the intention is to protect the tree roots while reducing the chance of people tripping. 

Other benefits including allow people to walk near the trees without stepping on the soil; water and air are still able to reach the trees for continuous growth. In addition to the soil not compacting around the roots.
