Ecological, whole-systems, holistic approach. If you want to save money, have a beautiful working environment and genuinely protect nature - call me. Read my BLOG

For farmers, owners (or project managers) of large site developments (industrial sites, subdivisions) I offer a genuinely sustainable approach and apply long-term, large scale thinking to find effective solutions to riparian, stormwater and spatial challenges. This involves site analysis coupled with a wide knowledge of materials and plants to produce an economic, attractive, high performing outcome.

Research Interests - working with AbacusIBio on:
  • finding farm pollutant sources e.g. P & N; design P & N specific planting mixes to keep pollutants out of streams and drains
  • variable-width buffers (potential 50% less land area required with 2x the effectiveness) reducing the cost of riparian planting by up to 70%
