HUNO water tank bench

Watering trees in public spaces is increasingly an issue.

Inner-city trees are often undersupplied because a natural water supply to the soil is no longer guaranteed due to sealed surfaces, the discharge of rainwater into the sewage system and an accumulation of weather events such as heavy rain and heat.

This is where the innovative HUNO Tankbank® comes in and supplies surrounding plants with water.

Inside the bench is a water tank that is filled through an easily accessible opening. The water is drawn off via a drip irrigation system. This flexibly usable water reservoir supplies the immediate surroundings of trees or other urban greenery with additional water.
