We’ve been a key role player in quite a diversity of projects. This was only possible due to our extensive knowledge of plant habitats and propagation. The following are some examples that we have indulged in over the past few years:
icon-check A vertical garden was installed at a private residence at Atholl in Johannesburg. Only indigenous plants were used.
A green wall was erected at the offices of RedPepper in Northcliff .The creepers were grown at the nursery in pots supplied by the client to a height of approximately 3m. It was transported to Northcliff and lifted to the rooftop by a crane.
A research study for the Water Research Commission on medicinal plants that occur in freshwater systems. Report K8-971 Available form their website.
A manual called “Biological remediation of impacted infrastructure sites based on sustainable development principles” Part of the FET Water programme managed by UNESCO sponsored by DWA and the Flemish Government.
A holding nursery was successfully established for the Department of Water Affairs at De Hoop Dam with the purpose to rehabilitate the disturbed construction area below the dam wall.
A training manual on horticultural aspects and how to manage a nursery was developed to regularly train own personnel. Training was also undertaken at the DWA holding nursery at De Hoop as well as at the EVRAZ iron mine near Roossenekal.
A feasibility study was undertaken for Coal of Africa on the establishment of a holding nursery at their Vele Colliery near Mapangbugwe.
A feasibility study was also undertaken for SANParks about the feasibility (and business model) of establishing nurseries at some of their game reserves. The emphasis in this study was on Marakele National Park.
The sidewalks along the bus route section in Nana Sita Street between Paul Kruger and Nelson Mandela Drive, Pretoria, were planted with grasses and grassland species of the Grassland Biome. A landscape architect did the design, but we recommended the plants to be used and we also undertook the placement of the plants.
