Bioretention inlets and weeds


Hi there,

Today we’re taking a look at how weeds get into bioretention systems. I know that you’ve seen a bioretention system full of weeds but have you ever wondered how they got there. Well there are a few ways and today we’re going to take a look at one of them. Stormwater. Yep a major source of weeds in bioretention systems is the stormwater that we treat. This system is a prime example. It hasn’t been overrun by weeds, but they are in there and there are lots more of them around the inlets.

I hope that you enjoy.
