Locals have recognised the rapid grass growth along Koombana Bay Drive in recent weeks. WA Eco Plant are responsible for the swift revegetation, having applied the Ecoblanket® less than four weeks ago. In this short period of time, the batter has reached 99% guaranteed cover crop coverage. Working alongside the City of Bunbury, WA Eco Plant had the challenge of stabilising roadside banks. Not only was this an eyesore for the public, but the erosion threatened the stability of the surrounding land.
The Ecoblanket®, a prescribed, premium organic compost and native seed blend, was tailored to the specific requirements of the site and fortified with ameliorants. Due to this point of difference from other remedial solutions, the Ecoblanket® has since surpassed progress expectations in successfully stabilising the embankments.
Not only is Ecoblanket® the most comprehensive treatment on the market, the solution is cost effective when compared to the cost of traditional revegetation methods.
As a permanent, guaranteed treatment, the Ecoblanket® on Koombana Bay Drive will transition through a number of phases to reach full maturity. From day one, the site has seen the immediate benefits of the nutrient rich compost, as well as the blanket-like protection from the elements. This shield has fostered cover crop; which is the lush green coverage locals are currently sighting. Over time, this short-term greenery is followed by the sustainable rehabilitation as natives cultivate.
The Ecoblanket® will turn grey soon, allowing for the essential germination of native seeds. For this particular project, seed mixes have been strategically placed to result in lush, low-lying natives which will stabilise the embankment and deliver a height-appropriate and naturally ‘manicured’ result over time.
Located on a prominent entrance to Bunbury, the rehabilitation transformation is now on public display.
