Reclaiming the city for wild nature
I offer a service creating places for wild nature typically on remediated brownfield sites such as abandoned industrial areas. Working as a sub-consultant to government and corporate clients I provide the following specialities within design teams:
integrating remediated wild places into the urban fabric.
specifying horticultural soil profiles including site soil testing and re-use strategies (usually in partnership with consultant soil scientists / agronomists), imported soil testing specifications and hold points.
advising on cost effective tree and habitat establishment strategies on contaminated land sites.
formulating plant species mixes informed by the desired ecosystem climax process and habitat structure, soil types, plant stock availability and establishment regime.
landscape design for remediated waterways including WSUD devices.
I have worked in natural area rehabilitation, restoration and remediation for over twenty years in South-East Queensland.
