Rehabilitation and  re-vegetation

We offer the following services to the construction and mining industry:

 

 

Plant rescue: required by law in certain development zones. Threatened or sensitive plants are removed from the construction site prior to development. Plants are stored during the duration of the construction project and returned to the site once construction is completed.

Rehabilitation: the treatment of degraded or disturbed areas to a pre-determined standard. It is required wherever there has been a change in the landscape which is causing soil loss. Rehabilitation may also be required where there is active erosion.

Re-Vegetation: the best defence that can be provided to protect the soil against erosion. However, the factors that caused the problem must be treated first. A combination of erosion control works and revegetation will have the most chance of success in preventing further erosion.

 

Prevention is always better than a cure!  Revegetation should be carried out in areas that have been depleted of plant cover. These may include:

areas of heavy vehicle pressure
construction sites
roadside drains and road batters
disused sites

 

Techniques used for revegetation will vary.  They may involve drainage control, ground preparation, seeding, fertilising, mulching, irrigation, protection and management.  We offer the following:

 

SEEDING
Seeding may not be necessary if the area has been respread with topsoil containing seeds.  However sowing may be necessary to obtain adequate ground cover. Seed can be purchased, however indigenous grass seed can also be collected from surrounding areas. 
 

INDIGENOUS PLANTS
Indigenous shrubs and trees can be established by  planting seed or nursery grown stock. Plants are selected from endemic plants commonly found within the area.

MULCHING
Mulch helps to retain soil moisture and keeps the soil at an even temperature, assisting vegetation to establish. It also helps to prevent erosion. Mulch hay must be weed free to prevent the  introduction or spread of weeds.
