Revegetation is a valuable and rewarding way to increase native vegetation and replace some habitat features on your property, when natural regeneration is not effective. It can also improve the aesthetics and, in some cases, the productivity of a property. However, revegetation is expensive, generally costing around $2,500 per hectare to plant and fence a site so it is important to get it right!
Central West LLS have developed a new guide, Planting your patch, designed to provide you with the information you need to re-establish trees, shrubs and groundcovers back into your landscape to ensure you gain the maximum benefit from your investment and it achieves its purpose.
The guide covers:
- Planning stages, including site selection, species selection and timeline
- Onground works, including fencing, ground preparation and planting
- Caring for your plants, including watering and weed management.
Note that this guide is produced for landholders in the Central West region, so while most information provided is useful for us, the plant species covered will not necessarily be suited to our region. For information on species suited to your region, try a local guide, such as the South West Slopes Revegetation Guide.
