Urban tree protection through Baseguard

Tree wells around street trees collect litter, create trip hazards and suffer from compaction in addition to attracting weed growth. Baseguard solves all of these problems at a stroke protecting the tree and the environment.

Baseguard allows water and nutrients through its porous structure to the roots below, negating the issues associated with compaction. Tree wells are often choked with leaves, cigarette ends and other debris, especially when fitted with iron grilles. Baseguard, however, fills these voids.

Baseguard can also be used around trees in turf to eliminate the need for strimming and spraying. Flexing as the tree grows, it is a long-term solution to a long-term problem.

Baseguard products are easily fitted by our nationwide network of trained installers. They allow for tree growth; penetration of water and nutrients (they're porous) and are strong enough to support the tree-well edge during mowing and enable the use of CWC's fleet of WeedITs, potentially further reducing urban spray volumes. Further key benefits they offer include:

  • Helps authorities to meet the challenges of changing urban legislation and deliver real improvements to the environment….
  • Supports ongoing labour savings to local authorities and other amenity operators and providers…
  • Reduces the requirement for strimming, major cause of "white finger" which increasingly results in compensation claims from affected workers…
  • Reduces trip hazards in urban high traffic areas, for traffic islands; roundabouts; parks; pathways; golf clubs and so on…
  • Baseguard comes in several hard wearing colours and doesn't ‘crumble’ with foot traffic…
  • Moss and weed growth resistant…
  • Made substantially from shredded recycled car tyres - an environmentally-friendly use of waste materials…
  • Can be used to fill existing grilles and grids to prevent build-up of unsightly litter, weeds and moss
