A major slip several years ago destroyed Days Track – a public walkway. After a lengthy process to reform the track and establish pathways, Nelmac was contracted to plant the site to re-beautify and stabilise the hill.

The Nelmac team created the design with over 1,500 plants from our Nursery, including mostly natives. Every plant was secured with a plant guard to protect it from spray control for the surrounding weeds and pests such as weka that can dig up plants before they’re established.

This very steep site presented a challenge to the team. It was also a very high rainfall season. The team and the client were pleased that the project was completed in a very short timeframe.
