Vetiver Grass Planting
Shire Geotechnics is a strong believer of planting measures where we consider planting is a suitable and cost effective approach for ground creep, ground stabilisation and retention etc.
Vetiver grass is a native grass of South India, is very hardy and grows to one metre in height. What makes Vetiver grass special is it grows strong deep root systems which extend 4 to 6 metres.
When densely planted in a hedge or on a slope the root systems help bind the soils at depth providing a form of natural earth retaining system.
