Renaturation after the conclusion of the construction work.

Even if nothing more can be seen of the pipeline afterwards:

First the earth must be moved before things are truly complete. We use machines with special tyres which compact the soil as little as possible for this. We excavate the earth in clean layers so that the layers of earth can be placed back in the ground again in the correct order. After the work is concluded, the soil structure precisely matches the original profile. We loosen up any soil compaction again. The same plants and animals which lived there before the start of construction thereby quickly feel at home again.

Landscape architects are involved from the very beginning.

They analyse the existing condition of the landscape before the start of construction. In doing so, they sometimes also identify conditions which are not optimal, e.g. that the biodiversity could be greater in a certain place or that the ecosystem is negatively impacted by already existing influences. This is a good opportunity to correct these things during the later renaturation.

This is why it is often attested to us that following the renaturation the landscape is often not only visually but also ecologically in the same condition as it was or in an even better condition than it was before the work began.
