LOW SHELTER (NATIVE)

PRINCIPLE

Backbone of double meandering lines of hardy natives to provide efficient stock shelter, bird habitat and improved farm landscape.

SITE PREP

Pre-plant spot spray with 'Round-up' (Addition of dye recommended).

ESTABLISHMENT

Species and spacings are a guide and may be adapted to perceived shelter needs.

STEP 1

(12 plants per 20m) Establish the 'backbone' plants at 1.8m spacing along an inebriated line.

STEP 2

(8 plants per 20m) Repeat the operation along an imaginery opposite line.

STEP 3

(6 plants per 20m) Add supplementary species as shown. For longer sites, these extras should be located randomly to avoid symmetry. Please - no equidistantly planted Kowhais hanging regularly over the fence every 10m!

Note:

  • Many plants are site-specific. Obtain advice on selection.
  • Plant-material from local seed sources should be used.
