We carry out maintenance of garden beds that are found throughout the city on reserves, roadsides and traffic devices such as roundabouts. The frequency of visits varies based on the type of garden beds.
High profile landscapes are defined as memorials and prominent locations which are irrigated and/or have a high visual profile in relation to tourism and aesthetics.
These are scheduled to be visited on either a weekly or three weekly basis year round and are mulched annually. Replanting is prioritised and will align with a design or theme, some examples include Eternal Flame, Gemmel Tassie Memorial, Pt Noarlunga Memorial, Rotary Park, Market Square and Ellis Park.
Defined as linear landscapes that reflect the character of the location and have high amenity value. These landscapes are often irrigated to ensure longevity of the plants and are scheduled to be visited on a four weekly basis year round, mulched as required. Replanting is planned and will align with a design or theme. Examples include Willunga streetscape, McLaren Vale streetscape and Aldinga streetscape.
General landscapes are defined as non-irrigated reserve and roadside landscapes with moderate amenity value. These are scheduled to be visited on a six weekly basis year round and mulched as required. Replanting is undertaken as opportunity and resources allow. Examples are John Nichol Reserve, Riverbend Reserve, Hutchinson Reserve.
Natural areas such as coastal vegetation, wetland vegetation, watercourse vegetation, trail vegetation and bushland vegetation have site specific maintenance plans are developed for each site, which determine the required visitation frequencies to achieve standards.
