reed bed

Reed bed construction

A reed bed offers an alternative and effective method of supplementary sewage treatment. We construct both natural and gravel-based reed beds. Our reed bed construction process involves the implementation of several diverse disciplines like earthmoving, gravel placement, membranes, pipework, geotextiles, gabions, brick or concrete chambers, launder channels and footpaths. Starting in the early 1990s, we have constructed many reed beds in rural locations across the West Midlands and Wales. We also have experience in the associated sewage treatment work.
