Riparian - Double Row with Cortaderia Richardii

Length Options

PRICE: $1,248.77

This plant pack consists of a planting plan, plants, fertiliser tablets, and plant protectors.

The 'Riparian Double Row with Cortaderia Richardii' is designed for riparian planting purposes along streams and waterways. Riparian zone management has numerous potential benefits including stream bank stablisation and erosion control, reduced losses of sediment and nutrients from land, stock control and shelter, and flood mitigation. 

Carex secta makes up the first row, an extremely tolerant sedge which is planted right on the water's edge to provide bank stabilsation in times of high water. The second row, planted 1.5m behind the carex secta, provides both bank stabilisation and runoff filtering, and is made up of cortaderia richardii and cordyline australis. These two species combined make a spectacular looking planting, which is beneficial for both bank stablisation and filtering runoff. All of these species are very hardy and tolerate wind exposure, full sun, and frost. 

The planting plan is for an area 5m wide x 100m long.
