The area that sets Flora Victoria apart from all other environmental contracting companies is that we provide every service associated with the creation of native grasslands. This includes consultancy/site planning, production of the highest quality local provenance native grass seed,  site preparation, sowing, planting and maintenance of any size grassland revegetation project. Flora Victoria has developed it's own equipment for harvesting and sowing native grass quickly and efficiently, enabling us to complete large projects at a reduced cost for our clients. Our extensive knowlege and experience revegetating native grasslands, landscapes and the production of native grass seed mean that we  are able to get the best results possible.

By agricultural standards we sow small areas, in the world of native grass seeding we sow very large areas, and we sow more every year. To date we have sown about 100 hectares of native grass and our average size project has risen from about 1 hectare to about 5 hectares.

Tubestock planting is also still an important form of revegetation and Flora Victoria are equipped to plant large numbers of plants if required.

This important remnant grassland has large areas of Phalaris aquatica spreading through it, displacing indigenous species including the endangered Spiny Rice Flower (Pimelea spinescens ssp. spinescens). Here an area of about half a hectare has been prepared for direct seeding.
