- Revegetation -
Revegetation is the bringing together of proper design, technology, equipment, materials, expertise, and hard work to establish successful plant communities on disturbed lands. Rocky Mountain Reclamation is well known for its ability to combine all of these elements to obtain a superior end result for their Clientele.
Some of the steps to successful revegetation include: proper design, determining the best seed mixtures, soil amendments, fertilizers, and erosion control materials to maximize plant establishment and soil stabilization for the site conditions and post reclamation land use, determining best revegetation technologies to apply to the project, incorporating proper, well-maintained equipment into the process, utilizing revegetation experts with many years of on the ground experience, and getting out there and actually getting the work done, in spite of all the factors making it difficult to succeed.
Some of the revegetation procedures include: seedbed preparation, applying soil amendments, rangeland drill seeding, native hay mulching, straw mulching, hydromulching, tackifying, installing erosion control blankets and mats, and installing BMP’s and other erosion armor and protection materials
