1.1 Analysis of Site Conditions

With increasing site problematics, the procedures for the establishing of vegetation and for bioengineering get more complicated, more complex and more expensive. Sites with low space for roots (e.g. rocky soils with only a thin loose layer), poor in clay mineral and organic matter (raw soils), low soil-pH or strong slope inclination (steep slopes) demand for specific seed mixtures and hydroseeding recipes especially rich in components. To be able to select all components adequately, an as comprehensive as possible analysis of the site is necessary.

Restoration procedures and operation methods of bioengineering are successful only, if plants and components are optimally adjusted to the respective site conditions.
