Land reclamation & Landscape engineering

Since the beginning of 1990‘s, environmental landscape renovation and protection activities took place all over the Czech Republic. This was largely supported by the development of landscape renovation programs including the Program of Water Course Revitalization and the Landscape Protection Program, which reinforced the implementation of measures intended for increasing the retention capacity of landscaped areas. These programs accentuate especially the remediation of negative impacts of unsuitable implemented landscape modifications, inadequate land management and large scale dewatering, renovation of the natural functions of water courses and the flood plain, including surrounding planting and protection areas and ensuring the conditions for biological enhancement of water courses. Landscape protection is based on the protection of the landscape on the component level and as a whole.
