Block Planting

Problem

This creekline was showing signs of a rising watertable. The evidence is the barley grass, bare wet spots and poor pasture composition due to waterlogging.

Solution

The creekline was fenced off and salt tolerant trees and shrubs were planted to lower the water table. As they grow they will soak up the water and reduce the spread of salinity. Directional surface drainage has helped direct the surface run off to the eroded creekline.
