Blue Mountains Botanic Garden Mount Tomah
To better understand the natural soil landscape and receive guidance on the management of the Blue Mountains Botanic Garden Mount Tomah spectacular gardens, the Garden engaged SESL Australia. The scope of work included on-site soil surveys, laboratory testing and a soil management plan. The soil management plan outlined strategies to reduce soil compaction without harming the existing flora and fauna.
Characterising soil behaviours advises a better approach to sustainable management and amelioration (amendments). The SESL soil scientists conducted their investigation to evaluate physical characteristics of the soils (texture, structure, colour and water holding ability).
