It may look compartmentalized and contained but the Eco + Path concept is a much more successful setup than you'd find along most suburban and city streets. Instead of planting trees that are surrounded in a small bed of soil and a sea of concrete and asphalt, this project aims to better integrate vegetation with the earth beneath.
This is accomplished through the installation of special grate tiles around the planters with a hidden network of reservoirs, pipes and an effective watering system. The panels provide a flat surface for walking with plenty of perforations for the passage of rainwater. Jonathan Aljets' Eco + Path scheme requires little to no additional hydration by hose or sprinkler, thus relieving much of the maintenance necessary for urban greenery and community gardens.
