As designers of biological pools we have to think about water and its quality.

Water is a natural resource. In Mediterranean climate, rain falls during the coldest half of the year and enriches groundwater resources. Plants help a lot with water infiltration. They are stopping the drips, and with their foliage they increase the retention time until the water reaches the ground. With their roots they open the soil, a very important function for infiltration and subsequent renewal of the so-called water table.

The larger the plants and the denser the vegetation, the greater the effect of plants in the context of water infiltration. Green plants turn the soil into a living environment providing oxygen to the rhizosphere, colonized by many living beings making the land fertile. The density of the vegetation allows the infiltration rate to be increased and, at the same time, it protects the soil with its leaves, preventing water from running superficially and, in the worst case scenario, causing erosion. Naturally, a dense forest of native species has a better capacity to preserve two natural resources, soil and water.

Our concern as designers of biological pools is also dedicated to water and the preservation of its good quality. Consequently, we dedicate part of our professional life to the preservation and ecological restoration of forests. The presence of beautiful native forests in the landscape guarantees the future of our water.
