The environmental recovery project involves the morphological remodeling and subsequent planting of native plants. The design philosophy is based on three elements:
• morphological remodeling surface, it is implemented so as to bring the steepness parameter to that found in the neighborhood of the intervention site. The goal is to make the site homogeneous to the context in terms of the perception of the landscape;
• the control of surface water, which is essential for the stable slope profiles over time;
• revegetation project will promote the rapid development of herbaceous cover(such intervention to protect the surfaces from erosion), it will be followed by planting shrubs and trees. All plants used will be native.
