Saxton Creek


The client sought to improve creek water flow and help with flood control. Nelmac prepared a design and planting layout for the site.

The site posed some challenges: in addition to undertaking the work during a wet planting season, there were restrictions to accessing private land, tight timeframes and different soils from rock hard to bog. The Nelmac team planted nearly 3,000 mostly native plants and there has been a good survival success rate.
