Riparian - Double Row with Olearia Dartonii

Length Options

PRICE: $1,254.07

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

The 'Riparian Double Row with Olearia Dartonii' 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 an extremely tolerant mix of species. They are all tolerant of sun, wind, and frost. The pittosporum, cordyline australis, and olearia dartonii all can grow to up to 5m in height providing shade for water bodies potentially increasing its biodiversity value and ecosystem health, and providing habitat for aquatic species. It also provides shelter and stock control for neighbouring paddocks. 

This flatpack is very drought tolerant. 

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