Specially constructed reed-beds have the ability to filter and process nutrient rich waste by biological action. They are very efficient filters and incorporated into a fisheries site they can control pollution entering or leaving contained water.
Wetland plants, usually Phragmites australis (Common Reed) introduce atmospheric oxygen into the water creating conditions for aerobic activity and aerobic, anoxic and anaerobic zones where the micro-organisms break down contaminants. We are the UK’s largest producer of Phragmites australis and we have been constructing reed-beds large and small for the past 25 years.
