Green Infrastructure

The basis of green infrastructure is biodiverse, low carbon sustainable solutions.

Salix have developed a range of nature-based solutions that sequester or lock in carbon and create low maintenance, diverse ecological networks.

  • Our green infrastructure projects use low/zero carbon construction materials and installation.
  • Provides soil erosion control and long-term surface stability on steep slopes and embankments.
  • We work with local growers, manufacturers and suppliers to create a range of environmentally appropriate products and solutions.
  • Biochar is a key component of our solutions, created from recovered and recycled organic materials which improve soil conditions whilst indefinitely locking carbon within the landscape.
  • Construction programmes and costs can be greatly reduced using our nature-based solutions.
