What is Bioretain, Azwood® Bioretention media for rain gardens?

What is Bioretain and when is a rain garden beneficial to a project?

Bioretain prevents erosion and scouring of streams and rivers by moderating flooding, peak flows and spills. It also reduces water pollution by removing suspended solids, nutrients and dissolved metals contaminants from stormwater runoff. Bio Retain is also developed with local climate considerations so that in the drier months plants can thrive in a moist and nutrient-rich environment.

That being said Bioretain is a great option when developing gardens and landscaping near roads, built-up areas or on urban sites and is utilised by local government, large scale contractors and land developers for stormwater management.
