Trees, grasses, and shrubs do more than make the Filterra system attractive; they also enhance pollutant removal. Above ground, the system’s plants add beauty and value to the urban landscape. Underground, nature’s complex physical, chemical and biological processes are hard at work removing a wide range of non-point source pollutants from stormwater runoff. Pollutants are decomposed, volatilized and incorporated into the biomass of Filterra’s micro/macro fauna and flora.
A wide range of plants is suitable for use in Filterra. Selections vary by location and climate. View suitable plants by selecting the list relative to your project location’s hardy zone from the map below.
