Creating Riparian Zones

The strip of land beside a waterway is a called the riparian zone and it is a crucial buffer between land and water. Some riparian zones are grassed, but ideally they are home to many species of plants that existed prior to land development. Effective riparian zones include plants that can deal with floods and seasonal wet and dry periods, and will improve the health of your waterways.

Choose the right tree for your site

Trees work well when integrated into the landscape to complement and diversify existing land uses. Tree planting needs to be well planned by considering the long-term maintenance and end-use of the trees. If on farms, then take a whole farm approach and look at your land’s potential, water resources, environmental factors and terrain.
