Marleycombe Garden Reedbed Treatment System

Reed bed waste water treatment system for family and small business

The challenge

The rural wooded mid Devon site was planned to accommodate a residential and home business dwelling. A particular requirement of the site was that a reed bed treatment system should be installed to tackle the waste water produced by the development.

What we did

Westley Design produced a masterplan for the site and detailed design for both planting and reed bed filtration system, together with a richly planted garden for the family and business clients to enjoy.

The result

The reed bed system satisfied Environment Agency performance standard requirements and the garden provides a successful social and family amenity.
