  • Gully Blocking : can be over 3m deep, 139 km of gullies will be blocked.

  • Brash Spreading: The area of bare peat is estimated to be 50 hectares. Includes cutting, delivery and spreading of heather brash onto the bare peat areas.

  • Bare peat re-vegetation: spreading chopped up heather brash, on steeper slopes a geo textile material is required. Then a nurse grass seed is sown with successive additions of lime and fertilizer for four out of the first five years

  • Plug Plants: These are small plants, mainly Eriophorum angustifolium, Eriophorum vaginatum and Empetrum nigra.

  • Hydro-seeding: Hydro-seeding seeds of Calluna vulgaris, Erica tetralix, Erica cinerea and Vaccinium myrtillus by helicopter of cleaned seed.

  • Sphagnum: helicopter application, in suspension, of embryonic plants of 5 Sphagnum species and Polytrichum commune.
