Our Products

BioHaven® Floating Treatment Technology is a cost-effective alternative approach for water quality, habitat enhancement, wetland restoration, and more.  Floating Islands, also called Floating Treatment Wetlands are available in a variety of shapes and sizes.  We offer a range of products from mini islands for container gardens or koi ponds, to large floating islands built to suit your need, as well as specialized products to treat wastewater or storm water runoff.  Our BioHaven products are made from recycled material and incorporate the elements of biomimicry into every design.  BioHaven® can easily be integrated into your LEED projects, resource conservation, as well as most other low impact development & green infrastructure projects.  In addition to the myriad of benefits such as carbon sequestration & absorbing greenhouse gases, the BioHaven® floating treatment technology is immune to fluctuating water levels – so they can be applied to most lakes or reservoirs.

Floating Island: 25 square feet and larger

Are you looking for something larger than a 5 foot x 5 foot island?  No size is out of question.  The custom floating island is our most popular selling item, this allows more flexibility of shape and design. Want to buy a floating island for a large pond?  Maybe you are looking for a 10 x 10 foot island, 15 x 20 foot, or a 20 x 30 foot floating island?  We can customize islands to fit your desired application.  Tell us what you are using the island for and we can help guide you in the right direction.  Consider the shape, size, and weight load that you might be interested in.  This depends on a few factors, which we will discuss.  Will you be planting sod on a floating island, will you be using the island for otters, or a possible swan nesting site?  If so, these would be important items to share with us prior to manufacturing – as we would need to make some adjustments prior to making the floating island.  Custom BioHaven Floating Islands have been used by many respected organizations including Denver Zoo, Montana Zoo, EPCOT Walt Disney, Oregon Gardens, USGS, and many more.  You can buy an affordable private island, call today to make it happen.

Elevated BioSwale™

Contaminated surface runoff from storm water events is a major potential cause of water pollution in urban, residential and agricultural settings around the world.  Elevated treatment swales (Elevated BioSwales™ ) containing vegetation are one promising method for treating storm water and agricultural runoff.

Bioswales are an alternative and effective method for treating storm water runoff.  Over the last few years, Low Impact Development (LID) & Green Infrastructure has been gaining in popularity as people transition toward more sustainable practices.  Many communities on the West Coast are looking for green products and fresh ideas to incorporate into their net-zero projects, the BioHaven® bioswale is a perfect fit.

The elevated bioswale contains the BioHaven® matrix, which provides about 250 square feet of surface area per cubic foot.  Our proprietary matrix is an effective substrate for biofilm development, in combination with circulation, it can be highly effective at transitioning agricultural‐based nutrients and urban contaminants out of water and into local food webs.  BioHaven® Elevated Bioswale creates infiltration as well as strong deep roots, both important to effectively treat storm water runoff.

  • Floating Dock
  • Floating Putting Green or Floating Hole-in-one
  • Wastewater Treatment
  • Stormwater Treatment
  • Constructed Wetlands

Standard floating island model may work for you if you are looking for…

  • Floating island for a small pond or a tight space.
  • A pretty pond planter – if you are simply looking to decorate your pond with floating planter, try a mini floating island model.  BioHaven products are more effective than regular planters, the base of the roots are protected in our matrix & every island works to improve water quality.  Eventually roots will make their way into the water – this is a good thing.
  • Habitat Enhancement: All floating islands work to improve habitat, small or large islands.
  • Floating Planters, Floating Flower Beds, or Floating Veggie gardens – depending on weight loads, the standard models IPO 400 and up can work…we do not suggest anything under IPO 300 model for growing veggies (due to weight load).
  • Bird Nesting Island: Depending on size of bird, a mini islands (IPO400 & larger) may work.
