CDTS offer a comprehensive service for restoring native grassland using local origin seed. By utilising our Brush seed harvester to collect seed from a suitable donor site and hydroseeding the collected seed onto a receptor site.
The above series of photos demonstrate the process:
- Seed collection from a carefully selected donor site.
- The collected seed
- Preparation of the donor site
- Application of the seed by Hydroseeding.
This method of establishing native grassland and Heathland can be used on a wide range of sensitive sites.
To ensure success careful planning is essential from selecting a suitable donor site, carefully timed seed collection and storage, preparation of the donor site and application of the seed.
