- Ecological restoration activities: targeted weed removal, non-invasive treatment techniques encouraging native regeneration
- Riparian restoration: Riparian corridor specific weed control methods, ensuring erosion and sedimentation levels are maintained
- Indigenous revegetation: small and large scale revegetation of degraded land, infill planting to strengthen and increase diversity in existing bushland areas (Fig 2.)
- Large-scale weed control: spraying of noxious species impacting on ecologically sensitive areas (Fig 1.)
- Remote access weed control: off road vehicles equipped with large scale spray equipment
- Working at heights: Revegetation and weed control in areas requiring harness systems
Our aim with this new division is to close the gap between landscaping and environmental practices and work as a multi-disciplinary partnership to further accommodate ecological restoration.
