Founded in 1992, GreenBlue Urban was set up to research and provide solutions for assisting trees in their battle to establish in urban spaces. With the goal of drastically improving urban planting success and increasing leaf canopy in urban areas, we began a programme to analyse the challenges, causes of failure and reasons for premature mortality in urban trees, which continues to this day. We have examined the impact the poor planting can have on urban infrastructure, identified key issues in both of these areas and systematically researched possible solutions and designed practical products and systems to address them. We help create sustainable urban landscapes for our future generations by providing green infrastructure solutions to landscape architects, urban designers, civil engineers, and contractors. Our industry-leading ArborSystem offers trees in urban environments the best opportunity to thrive, while also providing a sustainable answer to stormwater management.

Our Company Name
Formerly operating in North America as Citygreen Urban, we changed our company name to GreenBlue Infrastructure Solutions at the beginning of 2015. The reason for this change was to deeper express our passion for green infrastructure, sustainable stormwater management, and complimenting street furnishings. Our new name and logo were created with the subliminal message of trees and water linked creating GreenBlue, in order to better represent this vision.
Soil Cell Pioneers
The concept behind soil cells was first developed by GreenBlue in 1992, when our UK branch installed the first tree pit using structural soil cells to provide uncompacted soil volume for root growth underneath a paved surround. The system was the world’s first application utilizing soil support cells for tree planting, and became the model for all future soil cell modules. Since then, we have continued to lead the green infrastructure industry and innovate the landscape architecture profession with unparalleled urban landscape products and tree planting systems.
