Creek Diversion Channel

Borgs Manufacturing in Oberon constructed a creek diversion channel which required significant stabilisation and an effective regrowth solution. The channel consisted of a steep hard packed clay surface with zero topsoil on the batter. Ecoscape were engaged at the height of the 2019 drought.

Ecoscape recommended a 4-part solution:

  1. Prescripted ameliorants used to balance deficiencies and support growth
  2. Proganics applied at 5t/ha coverage to increase organic matter
  3. Flexterra applied at 5t/ha for maximum stabilisation and longevity during drought
  4. Seed mix involved a cover crop of millet as well as some cool season pasture species suited to the cold climate of Oberon

For the first 3 months the cover crop didn’t establish due to zero rain after application, however when heavy storms came in Feb/March 2020 the cool season species germinated and established quickly with a thick healthy vegetation cover achieved within 6 months.

Nashdale Rail Bridge Abutment

Our client had to remove an old railway overpass bridge. Upon their completion the site was left with extreme batters that were bare of vegetation and had a high risk of erosion.

Ecoscape was engaged to stabilise the area. Due to the extreme near vertical face the only option we were comfortable to use was Flexterra – a High performing Flexible Growth medium. One section of batter had a higher chance of erosion due to overland flow, it was decided to use a TRM infilled with Flexterra for this section. This method of stabilisation is called “Green Armour”. It allows for a “green” solution rather than a Hard armour such as gabion or shotcrete.

Flexterra application on rail bridge abatement

Our staff are trained in working safely at heights and rope access, which was required to install the TRM and spray the Flexterra and achieve correct coverage. Some nice soaking rain was experienced in the days following installation, vegetation established quite quickly considering the harsh Orange winter and difficult access.

Zero sediment was lost and more importantly the batters are now stable and sustaining the vegetation used.

Kids Playgrounds

Certified Soft Fall

Ecoscape Solutions is the “go to” for many councils around NSW when it comes to the supply and installation of softfall for kids playground surfaces. Ecoscape Solutions can supply and install certified Softfall in a fraction of the time that manual labour can install. Some playgrounds require 100’s of cubic meters, which Ecoscape can install in less than a day.

Cullen Bullen Landfill Site Regeneration

Ecoscape were engaged by Lithgow City Council to stabilise and revegetate the recently closed Cullen Bullen Landfill Facility on the Castlereagh Highway, Cullen Bullen. As part of the closure plan, the site had to be topsoiled and hydromulched. Ecoscape Solutions developed a solution applying ProGanics Biotic Soil Media at a rate of 5000kg/ha to provide a topsoil alternative, locally sourced native grass seed mix, and then locked the site down using ProMatrix Engineered Fibre Matrix applied at up to 4000kg/ha.

Cullen Bullen Landfill Site Before

The 2 hectare site is now protected from erosion for up to 12 months, and valuable organic material has added to the sandstone profile to provide the ideal substrate for establishing persistent groundcover.

Orange Regional Museum Green Roof

Our client had designed a unique green roof concept for the new Orange Visitor Information Centre. The roof design involved a steep sloping section from ground level up to a large flat open rooftop area which allowed general public to access and enjoy 24/7. The deadline for the centre to be opened and therefore the roof to be grassed was extremely tight. The slope of part of the roof was extreme which made the choice of soil type extremely important. Access for Ecoscape to fill the Geocell was also limited.

Geocell filling using a Bark Blower

Ecoscape worked with Sydney Environmental & Soil Laboratory (SESL) to create a specialist growing media which was lightweight enough to blow into the Geocell and which would sustain healthy & quick grass growth. A total of 410m3 of media was installed in one day. The Museum & Visitors Centre was opened on time with a green roof and has since gone on to win multiple awards.

CERTIFIED SOFT FALL

Soft Fall or Playsafe Certified Pine Bark is a soft round pine bark that is specially developed for playground surfacing. This bark complies with all requirements for product certification under AS/NZS 4422; 1996. Soft Fall is clean from contaminants and ‘white wood’, making it safe for use in all play areas.
