We have been restoring and revegetating sites throughout South Australia for decades.  We use an applied approach to site remediation, where possible using natural process to provide solutions.  Our services include:

A Groud Up approach

A ‘ground up’ approach, which floods a site with coloniser species, is much quicker and more effective than traditional ‘top down’ revegetation methods at producing resilient and functional plant communities.  Using coloniser species is the first step in the successional process towards building these plant communities.  Our experience has shown that in providing this catalyst for natural ecosystem processes we can reduce weed management requirements, improve soil health and increase invertebrate and vertebrate activity.  All of these components contribute to stable and functional plant communities.

Habitat Preview cropOur aim with habitat restoration is to build ecosystem function by reducing weed competition, increasing plant biodiversity and supporting the development of habitat structures for wildife.

Biological Soil Crust

Soils of the arid zone are characterised by their low nutrient availability, poor biological activity, fine particle size, and high levels of salinity, alkalinity and sodicity. Biological soil crusts provide important functions in these systems; they bind soil, minimise erosion, fix carbon and nitrogen, and absorb rainfall. Once damaged or removed a biological soil crust can take a long time to restore.

We specialise in dust management for projects in arid and semi-arid areas.

We use an applied ecological approach to weed and pest management that is tailored to your site and species.

We specialise in large-scale restoration of arid and semi-arid ecosystems.

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.
