The La Niña weather pattern that has been forecast for this year’s Australian summer is likely to continue through to at least February 2021, bringing with it above-average rainfall for most of the country. With rainfall increasing after a period of drought, what was dry ground can now be easily eroded. Regardless of which industry you work in, it’s important to stay on top of protecting your ground this summer.
Protect your job site with erosion & sediment control solutions
Whether you work in the civil, commercial, mining, rail, government or energy industry, you’ve got enough to worry about without having to deal with wind & rain creating havoc with your project site. Products like Flexterra or Enkamat are great solutions to keep soil in place, preventing it from being washed away and fostering accelerated plant growth. If you’re not sure exactly what you need, Ecoscape Solutions consult with businesses like yours to ensure all site conditions are taken into account when recommending the best solution to protect your site from erosion.
Preserve & rehabilitate natural vegetation
Identify the natural vegetation at your site and protect it as much as possible. Preserving ground covers and trees will prevent fertile topsoil from washing away in the rain. If any vegetation has been removed or damaged, Ecoscape Solutions have a range of erosion control methods and products tailored to your industry that we can install to speed up the rehabilitation of vegetation. These include compost blankets, hydromulch, Biotic Soil Media and other specialised products to provide a sustainable foundation for ground cover and vegetation growth. Ecoscape Solutions have trained horticulturists and soil specialists to develop a tailored regeneration plan for your business, ensuring your site looks great in no time.
Prepare playgrounds for peak school holiday traffic
If you work for a local council or civil organisation responsible for maintaining recreational spaces and play areas, you might like to think about topping up playground Soft Fall Bark. With a high volume of kids heading to the park during school holidays, and with Soft Fall needing a top up four times a year, it’s a perfect time to get on top of it. Soft Fall or Playsafe Certified Pine Bark is a soft round pine bark that is specially developed for playground surfacing and recommended to be applied at a minimum depth of between 200 and 300mm when used for a play area. Ecoscape Solutions can install hundreds of cubic meters of certified Soft Fall in less than a day, saving you time and money. Get in touch to enquire about a Soft Fall top-up in your local area.
