Nature can teach bioretention 1


Hi everyone,

This is the first in a four part series (and honestly, there will be more parts in the future for sure) looking at what we can learn from nature about how bioretention systems function.

This is a topic that I am super passionate about.

Bioretention systems are natural systems. The more were learn from and mimic nature, the easier managing them gets. In this episode we begin by learning from where different plant species (Lomandra and Carex) grow in nature.


This episode, and this series isn’t about the particular species. It’s about the process of learning from nature. If we learn just about Lomandra and Carex, we learn one thing. If we learn the process of learning from nature, we learn many things.

It’s like the old adage. Give a person a fish and they eat for a day. Teach a person to fish and they eat for a lifetime.
