Water saving capability is one of the main advantages of the innovative Urbanscape Landscaping System to meet water management challenges.
Urbanscape Substrate provides fast and long term stable water re-absorption and water retention performance (proven by WOK and pF-Curve analysis). 1m2 of Urbanscape Substrate with 2cm thickness absorbs 17 litres of rainwater. Depending on type of local climate and/or weather season, substantial quantity of water can be saved with less frequent watering regime. For example, we have reached up to 50 % water savings in Kuwait pilot project area with clear indication of visual benefits of the lawn as well. Measurements indicated that vol.% of water in top soil layer was more than doubled in comparison to control plots.
