Resources for Ecosystem Restoration
Develop a resilient ecological design for a restored ecology with the changing resources. In ecosystem restoration, we need to remember that the environmental conditions for the previous ecosystem may not exist anymore. It took centuries for that system to develop. What we can do is select a reasonable reference ecosystem and create a strategy that encourages the site in a trajectory towards the next resilient ecology. During the process of ecosystem restoration, it is developing, invasive species, human disturbance, and natural setbacks from neighboring sites, or introduced species will require some intrusion by practitioners to keep the trajectory within a range of acceptable milestones.
We create the space, providing the abiotic and biotic conditions for the prefered species. Then plant enough density snd diversity to out compete the plants the may encroach on the designed system. This takes less and less time as the system develops. Neighboiring sites and human spaces may negatively affect the site conditions at times. Observation and frequent inspection will determine courses of action to maintain the outcomes desired.
Maps are formatted to deliver the most information with the least amount on visual fatigue. Detail is layered into the designn for added value.
Build a Legacy of Sustainable Design for Generations to Come
Abundance by personal choice, cultural change, and ecological solutions.
SouthWoods develops and enhances the systems that nature uses to increase natural capital and raise the carrying capacity of the land. Following nature's patterns, systems, cycles, and the site specific requirements, we ensure a resilient trajectory to a stable ecosystem.
