Melvyn Rutter Reedbeds work on a flow rate that is a little and often, and not anything and everything all at once!

Reed plants grow in springtime, usually during May. Of course this does depend on the weather and climate, which changes year to year. The main growth is during June and July.

So when you look at your Reedbed in March and there seems to be a lack of plant growth, don’t panic, I haven’t sold you dead grass and mud. The outflow should still be exactly as expected, and totally unaffected by top growth of the plants. Melvyn Rutter Reedbeds work well all year round.

Reedbed Quote Information That We Require.
1. How many people or daily volumes?
2. Is there a slope? Or do we need to lift with a pump?
3. Where will the outflows go to? Is there a ditch or stream? Do we need a living soakaway?
4. When is this work likely to be done?
