Decide on plants

The three most important things to consider are:

  1. What kind of ecosystem do you intend to create, forest, woodland, grassland, combination etc?
  2. How many plants are needed? Many revegetation projects plant four plants per square metre. I have found that students only manage to get two plants per square metre. 
  1. It is easiest to get help from you local indigenous nursery. Tell them the kind of ecosystem you want to create, show them your plan and tell them the location and type of soil. An example of what could be planted in a 16 square metre area is:
    a. 1 tree (most trees should be smaller varieties)
    b. 2 shrubs
    c. 24 grasses
    d. 9 other small pants.
