Remediation IconFrom the replanting of spoil heaps by the Earl of Dudley to the work of the Midlands Reafforestation Society, the West Midlands was not only at the heart of the Industrial Revolution, but was also one of the first places to use green infrastructure to remediate and restore the 'waste land' where industry moved on.

Today, our approaches to remediation and restoration of brownfield land have moved on and become more sophisticated. NW Environmental can advise on the many different approaches that can be used such as:

Grassland Habitats

Wildflower meadow creation

Grassland management, including grazing

Management and enhancement of naturally recolonised grassland

Woodland Habitats

New woodland planting

Advanced ground preparation

Woodland ground flora enhancement

Woodland management


Wetland Habitats

Pond and lake creation

Wetland creation

Sustainable Urban Drainage schemes

Rain Gardens


Heathland creation

Heathland management

Urban Habitats

Green roofs

Green walls

Creating breeding and roosting spaces

Wildlife gardens

'Urban commons'
