After setting up walls, roads and drainage on our sites, we make sure we preserve the environment and hedge the soil against erosion by planting Vetiver Grass. Few existing plants that have been known and used quietly over centuries, have suddenly been promoted and widely used world wide in the last 20 years like Vetiver Grass. And fewer plants still have been idolized as Miracle Grass, Wonder Grass with capacity to create a living wall, a living filter strip and “live nail” reinforcement.
When planted in single rows Vetiver plants will form a hedge which is very effective in slowing and spreading run off water, reducing soil erosion, conserving soil moisture and trapping sediment and farm chemicals on site.
We have been using this plant extensively on our sites and also helped other players in need to implement it on their development.
