Reedbeds

Reeds (Phagmites australis) have always created valuable wildlife habitat.

Increasingly, reedbeds are being used to treat water in urban drainage systems.  Many water companies are using reedbeds as a final polishing treatment in sewer systems but they can also be used to treat effluent on a domestic scale.

  • Phragmites australis at Brandon Marsh wetland
  • Reed planting as part of a sustainable drainage system (SuDS) treating roof runoff at Seaforth Docks
  • reed 900x400 2

JPR Environmental offers a complete reedbed design and construction service, from the initial planning to the groundwork and planting out. We also undertake reedbed maintenance, reedbed refurbishment and reedbed renovation work.  We undertake commercial work throughout the UK and domestic work in Gloucestershire.

Whether it be creating a reedbed for biodiversity, using reeds as the final process in treating waste water or improving an existing reedbed, we can help.

JPR Environmental also supplys quality pot grown reeds (Phragmites australis) in a range of sizes from 60 cc plugs to half litre pots.

We have extensive experience with:

  • ongoing reedbed maintenance programmes
  • reed planting
  • commerical and domestic reedbeds for the treatment of waste water runoff, effluent and washings
  • compost treatment beds
  • sustainable drainage systems – SuDS

If you are considering a reedbed treatment system or you have an existing reedbed that is not functioning as well as it once was, do get in contact.
