We’re an environmental consulting company providing a broad range of services in ecological consulting, restoration management and native seed supply.
Hello
Slider

To cover over 300 Ha for the Port Augusta Power StationAsh Storage area, we needed to develop an accurate and fast method of distributing our native seed mix over the site. We used a mechanical compost spreader to sow 4 ha per hour and we consistently sowed 30 ha per day!

Pt AUgusta webmedThe mix contained a mish mash of seed from big puffy chenopods to tiny sharp native grasses. That’s 2.7 million viable seeds per hectare (from our lab testing). Our seeds were mechanically mixed to ensure an even spread of species and we used a few different ‘recipes’ to suit different zones on the site. Now that most of the seed is in the ground, it’s a waiting game. With our strong seed viability testing results we’re very excited to see the results, the timing of which will of course depend on Mother Nature!

A Successional Approach

Our unique approach to revegetation involves a ‘ground up’ methodology, which floods a site with seeds of native colonising species. The use of colonising species provides rapid site stabilisation and initiates the process of recovery to build ecosystem function. These species add organic carbon to the soil, attract invertebrates, deposit seed, compete with weeds and provide cover. Colonising species in the arid zone can reproduce within 6–8 weeks of rainfall, bolstering the seedbank. These attributes provide a great catalyst for building ecosystems in the arid zone.
