Landscape : Cover over Sarikei's Drain
Drain covers are not necessary made of concrete or plastic. Wood can be an option if the material is easily available, economical feasible, durable and weather-proof.
Along Jalan Berek in Sarikei, the
drain is covered by wooden cover made of cengal wood. Cengal
wood is one of the hardest wood in Malaysia, of the Neobalanocarpus heimii tree.
The wood is hard, compact, durable and even termite-resistant. It is
however not maintenance-free. Nothing is maintenance-free.
