Products & Solutions
In the Australian mining and construction industries, revegetation is a critical undertaking. Required by law and best practice, revegetation ensures that the land is rehabilitated, stabilised, and restored to its natural state post-development. Revegetation also improves environmental outcomes, reduces erosion and sedimentation, improves water quality, and enhances habitat for local fauna.

Natural – This happens by encouraging natural regeneration of plants from existing or nearby vegetation. To save on costs, first consider this option for re-establishing native vegetation.
Broadcast seeding – This involves scattering seed over the disturbed area and then incorporating it into the soil with either a cultipacker or roller.
Hydromulching – This is a cost-effective revegetation method that can be used on large areas of land. Hydromulching involves mixing seed, mulch, and water, and then applying the mixture to the land.
Direct seeding – This is a more labour-intensive revegetation method that is most optimally used on small areas of land. Direct seeding involves planting seedlings or seeds by hand.
Planting tube stock – This revegetation method involves planting seedlings that have been grown in tubes or pots. This revegetation method is best utilised on steep slopes or in areas of high wind.
