Hi there detained readers,

Bioretention can be combined with flood detention. From an aesthetic point of view it often goes horribly wrong. Not always though. The bioretention often gets the blame. That’s rarely accurate. So it plays its part, but as this video will show, combining bioretention and detention can certainly work so long as we get a few things right.

Today we will show you three combined bioretention and flood detention systems. The first is really decent, in spite of its design. The second is atrocious. The third is lovely and I think will continue to improve over the years.

Which of the three options do you think is working best?
