Bioretention soil

A bioretention area (also called a bioretention basin or bioretention pond) is a shallow landscaped depression engineered to capture and filter stormwater runoff using soil, non-invasive plants and microbes.

The soil and vegetation treat the rainwater, so quality is paramount. At Green Landscaping Supply, we have high-quality bio mix soil for your bioretention areas.

A Landscaping Feature with a Purpose

Bioretention areas vary in size and work best when receiving runoff as close to the source as possible. They are commonly found next to roofs, parking lots, driveways and other impervious surfaces where runoff is most polluted. They can be installed in lawns, parking lot islands, median strips and more.

From there, the stormwater entering the underdrain system or infiltrating into the existing subsoil below the soil bed has reduced total suspended solids, soluble salts, metals, nutrients (Phosphorus, Nitrogen) and pathogens (fecal). They also slow the release of water into lakes, rivers and natural water reserves during heavy rain.

Therefore, bioretention areas are aesthetically pleasing landscaping features with a valuable purpose.

What is Bio Mix Soil?

Bioretention soil (bio mix soil) captures chemicals, oil and other contaminants from roads and lawns, so it doesn’t pollute surrounding waterways in the Atlanta area.

Not any soil will do. It has to be a specific combination of sand, soil and compost to retain and filter the water properly. At Green Landscape Supply, we offer quality bio mix soil for retention ponds and landscaping at our locations in Buford and Norcross, GA.

Sand is the highest percentage component in the mix and has a specific gradation to enable infiltration. The soil is screened to be free of contaminants and contains the appropriate chemical characteristics and pH level. The compost stabilizes the pH, adds organic matter content to the planting media mix and promotes beneficial microbial activity for water treatment.

In addition to precise component percentages and types, the bio mix soil is homogenously blended with the proper equipment. As a result, the soil performs as designed from the top to the bottom of the bioretention profile.

  • Jon B.

    Wanted to add top dressing to my lawn and stopped by to get some basic facts before starting. The team was so helpful to answer my many questions and made me feel comfortable to move forward with project. Stopped by a few weeks later with a u-haul and was all loaded up and ready to go within 15 minutes. Very helpful and inviting team. I might have them deliver next time, seems it's much easier and it can be dropped off on my driveway in those huge plastic bags - wife likes that Idea, and keeps me from unloading the truck on my own

    We undertook a major landscaping project spanning 2018-2019. It includes stabilizing a foundation wall, construction of retaining walls, redirecting drainage, raised flowerbeds, and completely redoing the lawn. It requires multiple truckloads of stone, sand, fill dirt and topsoil. We saved a few dollars, but more importantly, the quality of the products ordered were unequaled. It was the best experience in getting exactly what and how much we needed that we had in the 30Y we've been here.

  • Ben J.

    Holy Cow! Super fast and friendly service having some gravel delivered. Person taking order on phone and driver very friendly. Feel I got a very fair price on material as well. Will be back.

  • Joshua J.

    When every other landscaping nursery was out of sod these guys had it. Felt very much like a family business. Not a lot frills here, but none are needed for a landscaping business. For my next project I might just have to drive past the other 3 nurseries to get here.

  • Tessa H.

    The only place I will go from now on! John was very kind and so helpful! Even though my job was really small, I was treated with so much respect and personal care that I will not being going anywhere else for my landscape needs in the future. They have a massive selection and their customer service is outstanding.
