The Design Tool Kit is a specific collection of resources to support a design team in developing a stewardship strategy for a patch of vegetation. A shared toolkit supports development of a shared language around Vegetation and Revegetation and Vegetation Processes that allows for stronger information exchange.

Conceptual Resources

Assessment Methods and Site Layout

Water Management and Terraforming

Grading, fill, ditches, drains, soil degradation, modification of the In-Stream Wood Budget and simplification of Stream Structure, have modified the above ground and below grown flow of water, typically reducing water retention in the landscape, and delivering water and pollution more quickly to rivers and streams, degrading In-Stream Flow and Water Quality

Vegetation Patterns

Species are combined into vegetation patterns that evolve through Vegetation Processes. These recurring patterns suggest horticultural strategies for establishment and maintenance.


Individual species have a growth forms and life histories, environmental tolerances, horticultural behaviors, and potential yields which are often poorly understood. The toolkit will accumulate both knowledge and areas of uncertainty on a series of Flora pages.
