A bioswale is a permanent, shallow landscape depression or channel used to direct stormwater to infiltration areas or engineered containment systems. Bioswales use Low Impact Development (LID) management practices – vegetated swales combine the benefits of organic matter and gravity to physically filter stormwater pollutants before they reach streams and natural water resources.
This Bioswale Mix meets the Bay Area Stormwater Management Agencies Associations (BASMAA) soil specifications for Biotreatment Soil Media. BASMAA recognized the need for a biotreatment soil product which allows stormwater runoff to infiltrate while providing sufficient moisture retention to support healthy vegetation. Soiland Bioswale is designed to meet these critical elements of the biotreatment system.
