Ecological Rehabilitation + Restoration

Native revegetation, also known as ecological restoration, involves using New Zealand native plant species to rehabilitate and restore natural bush environments or ecosystems that have been degraded, damaged or lost due to development, past vegetation clearing or natural disturbances. Whether undertaken on a small or large scale, this process offers numerous benefits, such as conservation, increased biodiversity, erosion control, preservation of bush remnants, increased populations of native fauna, weed control and improvements to water quality within streams.

Ecological restoration plans may form part of our other design services or as a stand-alone service for environmental-focused projects to restore degraded, damaged or destroyed ecosystems.
