North Terrace Adelaide Redevelopment.
The upgrade of North Terrace Adelaide was one of the most rewarding commercial landscaping projects Visual Landscape Gardening has undertaken.
From Kintore Avenue Adelaide, where the ANZAC monument is situated through to King William Road Adelaide, green granite large format pavers were laid on a mortar base to match previous paving along North Terrace. Plaques commemorating people were in filled into sections of the paving. Feature slate cobblestone pavers were laid within the green granite pavers before natural lawn turf was laid with an irrigation system. The garden beds were planted with colourful foliage, low maintenance plants before the beds were mulched, again with an irrigation system. Bus stop areas were given special tactile safety pavers to prevent slipping and finally edging was inserted to lawn areas.
Although a large commercial landscaping project, strict time lines had to be adhered to – and met, due to parades and the ‘Northern Lights Display’.
