Investing in our community and supporting local business
Environmental management is the name of our game.
From implementing classic community Landcare activities, to undertaking water quality monitoring, to strategic land management planning and consultation, our staff have the qualifications and experience for all of your environmental management needs.
Living with Native Wildlife
When the Shire of Katanning needed to translocate native fauna away from a wetland development site, we were contracted to ‘make it happen’. Working with a professional fauna handler and community volunteers, we made sure that turtles, frogs and reptiles were all safely recorded and moved out of harms way.
Need assistance with native wildlife? We can:
- Undertake wildlife monitoring
- Undertake translocations
- Develop wildlife management plans
- Advise in future planning for wildlife corridors for threatened species
- Coordinate volunteer assistance and facilitate inter agency collaboration – we have the hook up!
Vegetation Surveying & Management
The Town of Narrogin hired us to advise and assist them to meet their Department of Environmental Regulation clearing license requirements for a contaminated site clean-up. We provided field staff to identify, mark and count native vegetation present on the stockpiles to be removed, resulting in a great outcome for the Shire and the environment.
Need help with vegetation surveying, monitoring and management? We can:
- Design and undertake field vegetation surveys
- Provide management recommendations for native vegetation
- Advise on introduced vegetation management
- Facilitate agency and community interaction
- Design and implement monitoring and management plans

Katanning Environmental Nursery
As part of our newest venture, we now grow local native plants right here in Katanning!
Check out the range of species and price list via our online ordering system here, to help you plan for your next revegetation or native gardening project.
IMPORTANT: Please make sure if it’s a big order or you want obscure species, you need to get in touch with us well in advance of November to avoid disappointment. We need time to source the seed stock.

Garden & Landscaping Services
Are you planning a garden or landscaping project and have no idea where to start? Or is the cost of watering and fertilising your existing garden or grounds getting you down? Well we can help!
We have extensive experience and knowledge in planning and undertaking waterwise and fertilise-wise garden and landscaping for residential, commercial, state and local government clients. We recently undertook a retrofit of the Katanning Primary School Garden (pictured) and they are already experiencing a range of expected and unexpected benefits.
Studies show that most of the water used in the home or business goes on irrigation and most people fertilise much more than they need to. So a consultation with us will not only benefit the local environment, it will benefit your bottom line!
- Design a new garden/landscaping project from scratch
- Retrofit your existing garden/landscaping
- Advise on costings and undertake a cost-benefit analysis
- Liaise with local providers
- Assist in sourcing the local species you will need, often direct from our nursery!
