Revision of your catchment or property from existing aerial photography, digital data sources and/ or drone data to assess extent of possible landscape rehydration and regeneration measures. Implementation of landscape rehydration works can be at any scale from paddock, to farm, to entire catchment. Mulloon Consulting provides preliminary advice on the scale and scope of measures that may be suitable for your property.
Following a site review, a member of our expert team can undertake a site visit to discuss your goals and explore the opportunities and constraints to implementing landscape rehydration on your your property. Our team will identify key opportunities to address management issues and undertake a variety of actions that will deliver landscape rehydration, regeneration and productivity outcomes. This on-ground discussion can immediately respond to any issues or constraints you face and provide practicable solutions. Future actions can also be discussed along with improved land management practices that will contribute to positive outcomes. An important part of this review will be gaining an understanding of your capacity to implement and manage landscape rehydration works into the future.
Site Assessment Summary Report
The site assessment process can include a report processes that documents the management issues and solutions discussed at the site site visit and provides the basis for future detailed design or landscape rehydration farm plan.
Detailed Designs for Landscape Rehydration Measures
Following a site assessment our team can provide detailed designs suitable for construction for landscape rehydration and erosion control measures. Where regulatory approval is required for the works detailed designs can underpin the information required by regulatory authorities including state and local government for decision making purposes.
Landscape Rehydration Plans
A Landscape Rehydration plan considers the biophysical nature of your property, your capacity to implement Landscape Rehydration works and any on-ground or regulatory constraints to develop a plan that is site specific and responds to your goals, budget and timeframe. A landscape rehydration plan will provide clear details of specific measures to build a resilient landscape. It will also provide recommendations on monitoring and review of these measures over time. The plan will also make recommendations for capacity building and education in landscape rehydration to enhance your ability to manage installations over time. The plan will also provide advice on engaging with your neighbours and the benefits of a catchment wide approach.
Landscape Rehydration Plan Implementation
Mulloon Consulting can implement your Landscape Rehydration Plan in partnership with our specialist contractors and on-ground supervisors. We can also advise on the ongoing management of installations with a focus on vegetation and stock management, and post-rainfall reviews and remediation.
Our service includes advice and implementation of recommended monitoring of installations and structures to assist in revealing the apparent and measurable benefits of landscape rehydration. Monitoring can range from the establishment of photo points to drone footage, stream gauges, groundwater monitoring and ecological monitoring. Monitoring is best considered early in the project so that baseline data can be collected or before photos and or footage recorded prior to the implementation of works.
Capacity Building Workshops
As a subsidiary of the Mulloon Institute, and with our links to a range of ground-breaking regenerative farmers and educators, we can provide capacity building and education services to a variety of clients. Mulloon Consulting can offer workshops tailored to your community or group, focused on practical on-ground solutions to management issues and providing a workshop or workshop series introducing landscape rehydration, deomstrating the implementation of landscape rehydration measures and discussing maintenance. Workshops on the elements of catchment scale projects can also be presented.
We acknowledge that landscape rehydration actions may trigger the need for regulatory approvals. If permits are required, we can provide ongoing assistance in developing and delivering the required information for the approval process.
Catchment Scale Projects
Landscape patterns and processes do not stop at a fence line or a property boundary. These variables will, to a greater or lesser extent, influence or be influenced by what happens over the fence. As demonstrated through the Mulloon Rehydration Initiative, landscape rehydration at the catchment scale provides immense benefit to the environment, productivity, and communities.
