Protecting the safety and health of natural water sources is a top priority for pollution control. A steam planter pot is a fairly simple way to redirect runoff and filter it before it is returned to wild water sources. Rainwater can contain chemicals and toxins that are harmful to aquatic animals and animals that depend on land sources for drinking water. Using a rainwater planter design, contaminated water is captured and cleaned before returning to the water source.
What is a bio-warming system?
Rain gardens are an important part of rainwater harvesting and management. A bio-greenhouse system or rainwater planter is an innovative way to not only contain this water, but also to allow it to be cleaned before it is returned to groundwater or piped to mains water sources. The bio-greenhouse planter also adds lively appeal to the landscape when suitable filter plants are present.
A biogreenhouse planter is an area with a flat bottom filled with plants. In the region where runoff is collected, layers of mulch, dirt, and plant roots serve as filters to remove contaminants.
While rain gardens are biological systems, rainwater drainage systems go a step further. Rain gardens do not have physical barriers other than soil, rocks, or sod to retain water. In a bio-warming system, a concrete or cement box is usually constructed that does not allow water to collect on the sides. Instead, the water must pass through the lower layers, which trap impurities. There could be an infiltration system, where treated water seeps into the local soil, or a filtration system, where the water is directed to natural water sources.
Use of native plants to manage rainwater
There are many types of plants that are suitable for rainwater growers, but native plants uniquely fit the bill. The selection of native wild plants provides options that are appropriate for the area, and require less specialized care.
Aquatic and shore plants thrive in wet conditions and often have extensive root systems, which are useful for filtering water. In addition, these specimens provide habitat and food for local birds and animals. These plants are attractive as ornamental species, but add biodiversity and native flora. Choose plants that are compatible with cultural requirements and require minimal maintenance.
A basic rainwater plante
There are many guidelines and requirements for the best planter size, but most experts recommend a pot that is at least 18 inches (46 cm) wide.
The layered substrate is important for detoxification. It must be installed at least 18 inches (46 cm) deep. The base is local soil topped with rock, sand and pea gravel. This is followed by soil amended with compost, and topped with topsoil. Storage space for overhead sinks should be 6-12 inches (15-30 cm).
Finally the plants can be transplanted. If the purpose is only for filtering, a drain pipe should be installed to direct the water to its intended source. In infiltration systems, the water will eventually mix with the underlying mother soil.
