Wildness Pty Ltd contracted PALS to implement the revegetation and landscaping within their subdivision near North Dandalup. This involved strategic lot planting, living stream revegetation and the design and planting of the public open space (POS).
An additional project was the rehabilitation of the Dandalup River which flows through the subdivision. A detailed Foreshore Management Plan (FMP) was part of the conditions associated with the overall development. This FMP was prepared in conjunction with the Aboriginal land owners and the Shire of Murray environmental team.
Heavily weed infested grasses chocked the river system, (see pictures) the batter slopes and surrounding areas. Careful removal of the weeds and re-contouring of the batter slopes has created a clean area for the establishment of the freshly planted vegetation.
An extensive weed control program and mulching has supressed the regrowth of weeds. The revegetation zone was ripped and mounded
Assorted native trees shrubs reeds and sedges were planted across the winter months.
Before: The Dandalup River was choked with infested grass’s which clogged the watercourse
Steep eroded and unstable river banks require re contouring and the watercourse cleaned from exotic weeds and grass’s
Construction phase: The clearing of the grass’s and re-contouring of the water course batter slopes
Weeds and other debris removed off site to give a “clean slate” to begin the revegetation process
Revegetation preparation: The area is sprayed and mulch spread across the planting site
Planting zones ripped and mounded prior to planting
Results: Some eight months after planting, weed free, good species diversity and great initial vigour of the native trees and shrubs.
