Planting Mt Atkinson wetland

Australian Ecosystems

20 September 2021

Mt Atkinson is a Stockland estate out in the West of Melbourne. This film showcases the use of 600CC plant stock on the project. The clip shows how the nursery prepared and the construction team planted over 135,000 plants into this 3.5 hectare site.

The film highlights the design choice made by TBLD landscape architects to use our 600cc plant stock over forestry tubes, as they believe the more mature plant stock has a better chance of establishing in these degraded catchment sites, and that even after just six months they are able to provide enough canopy closure to reduce weed invasion. They also provide a more instant effect in the landscape and look amazing immediately after planting!
