Extensive clearing in the past has left many properties exposed and vulnerable to the environmental extremes. For over 30 years Wariapendi has been providing knowledge and expertise to rural property owners and managers to help reverse the effects of land degradation, increase productivity and provide for future sustainability.

Wariapendi offers a service which provides professional advice on how to increase productivity, improve capital value and enhance the lifestyle benefits that living on a rural property provides. Our advice includes how to enact revegetation projects, create windbreaks/wildlife corridors, control erosion, create wetlands and how to manage and enhance riparian zones and any remnant natural vegetation on the site.
