A pavement support system manufactured from recycled ocean post-fishing industry waste.
Utilising fishing nets, ropes and post-use rigid plastic, RootSpace Ocean takes a preventative approach to ensuring that these products are recycled into useful raw materials that do not end up in our oceans and watercourses… green plastics!
These green plastics are sourced by a trusted supplier that currently produces 12,000 tons of recycled plastic per year to be used in the production of high-quality environmentally friendly products, including RootSpace.
All of the used nets, ropes and post-use rigid plastics undergo the same process upon arriving at the production plant. They are first inspected & registered, before being cleaned and fractioned. They then undergo a process of extrusion, washing, drying & finally separation before being cut into green pellets ready for production.
This raw material is then delivered to GreenBlue Urban’s HQ in Bodiam, East Sussex, where our own manufacturing team inject this raw material into our RootSpace soil cell. A truly green alternative to urban tree planting.

The following table gives the minimum allowable paving construction depths required to disperse a 4.5 tonne wheel load (as an example) on different RootSpace configurations (this is based on a typical macadam type road construction and the standard tree pit detail of GBU specification):
|RootSpace configuration||Height||Subbase DTp Type 1 depth||Macadam depth *||Total depth|
|400 + 400||875mm||300mm||150mm||450mm|
|400 + 600||1075mm||325mm||150mm||475mm|
|600 + 600||1275mm||325mm||150mm||475mm|
* Total depth of bound bituminous layers (Minimum construction depths for a full range of wheel loads are available separately)
