Revegetation of Riparian Strips
Riparian buffer planting consists of planting native plant species along the shoreline to create a transition zone that contributes to the protection and quality of the body of water. This eco-responsible approach, which has become essential, will prompt further changes in the maintenance of all public land along the watercourse. For instance, grass will not be cut ten metres from the water’s edge. However, where benches are located close to the water’s edge, the landscaping will allow access to them and a view of the water.
