GreenBlue Urban are excited to announce the launch of a new modular bioretention raingarden system, the HydroPlanter™ The latest product can be retrofitted into highways schemes and on new developments of any size.

Rain Gardens are used to enhance the capacity of the surface water piped drainage network by capturing and storing rainfall, allowing it to soak into the ground or release it slowly back into the piped network.   

Urban Design London – Designing Rain Gardens.

The “Plug and Play” sustainable urban drainage solution can attenuate and cleanse stormwater and provide amenity and biodiversity to new and existing spaces particularly suitable for highway build outs, central reservations and verges. A single modular unit would also be suitable for new housing developments tackling SuDS solutions when space is at a premium. The HydroPanter is an easy to design solution with drag and drop CAD drawings available via the GreenBlue Urban website.

The modules are manufactured in the UK from 100% recycled material that can be filled with a soil specification and planted with wildflowers and biodiverse grasses. The concept is flexible, scalable and each unit stacks together to be a convenient solution that any subcontractor can work with and install. Installation is fast, simple and offers significant cost savings to alternative methods.

The complete package is available to include soil, drainage, stone and planting schemes. The HydroPlanter fully meets all requirements of the 4 pillars of SuDS outlined in the CIRIA manual.
