Planting, playgrounds and paths… no problem to GSL

With the development of the Broken Run subdivision in Wigram, GSL were once again utilised by Gillman Wheelans Subdivisions to complete the planting for the water retention basin. The project involved herbicide spraying of the planting sites. Supply and placement of Woolmulch and Coir matting, then planting over six thousand wetland tolerant native plants. These created a functional and attractive landscape that blended into the surrounding environment—designed by XteriorScapes. GSL have also planted the reserves and streets of the subdivision with a selection of European deciduous trees.

As well as planting the basin, GSL did the site works and landscaping for the children’s playground and dug the tree pits. GSL created the elevated platform for the playground and prepared the area for the installation of the playground equipment. GSL placed the large rocks around the perimeter of the playground that give additional seating and visual appeal. 

GSL were then asked to construct the footpaths around the playground. The GSL staff used the sub soil from the tree pits to build up the working platform for the footpaths, thus saving the client both time and money. This effective use of resources and continual focus on the smartest way to do the job are just some of the reasons GSL continue to be trusted and valued by their customers, time after time.
