18,000 plants to improve open space.


By Jennifer Lumsden, December 10 2018

Enviro Management Services worked on LXR open space planting

Enviro Management Services is undertaking a re-vegetation project for the Level Crossing Removal Authority (LXRA) by planting 18,000 indigenous trees and grasses. EMS crews delivery quality work integrating people with disability into real operational situations.

The re-vegetation project involves two sites; Davy Reserve, in Forest Hill, which forms part of the Healesville Freeway Reserve, and Eastern Freeway Trail reserve, in Nunawading, located at the corner of the Eastern Freeway and Springvale Road on-ramp. Both areas are popular for off-leash dog walking and general recreation in public open space.

Through the use of recycled timber mulch, and through ongoing weed control and soil cultivation, the garden beds are now developed and are prepared for planting.

Each plant receives a special mixture of nutrients, water crystals and saturaid to maximise plant survival over the summer months, with all plant seed sourced locally from the Yarra River Catchment. Yarra View Nursery, a not-for-profit nursery providing disability support services, has grown all the plants for this project.

A community planting day and BBQ was held on Saturday 15th December. Many nearby residents have been supportive and grateful of the improvements to the local environment.

The re-vegetation project is yet another example of a great collaborative project of EMS’ in improving open spaces.

EMS provides landscaping, grounds maintenance, garden maintenance, environmental works (bushland management), broad acre and specialist moving, and week control services and are based in Cheltenham.
