Bioretention is a type of green infrastructure practice where shallow basins (such as rain gardens) or structures (such as stormwater tree planters) collect stormwater and use vegetation and layers of soil and aggregates to filter, store and infiltrate the water. The vegetation also uses (transpires) the water. Bioretention is commonly installed in parks and wide road medians or sidewalks.« Back to Glossary Index
