Liffey Springs

Liffey Springs

Liffey Springs is a new subdivision in Lincoln. Grounds & Services Ltd (GSL) were contracted to implement the Landscape Design with the goal of creating a tranquil park setting using the natural springs and existing foliage vegetation of the area. This was done in close consultation with both the architect and the client.

The developers of Liffey Springs stated one of the reasons they chose GSL was:

“they are the best around at doing this type of work”.


To complete this project, GSL performed hard and soft landscaping as well as minor civil construction. This saw GSL carry out:

  • Earthworks to prepare the area, shape the creek and banks
  • Lawn leveling to prepare for the hydro seeding
  • Footpath construction to mirror the natural contours of the creek
  • Formation of landscaped areas with rock placement
  • Soil preparation for planting beds, including backfilling and adding compost
  • Planting using a variety of natives to compliment the existing foliage.

GSL used their diverse skills to execute the project. A qualified Turf Specialist ensured the turf was pristine while GSL horticulturalists worked closely with the landscape designers to ensure planting plans were followed. Specialist machinery and plant operators created planting beds and footpaths of a high standard with quality finishing.

GSL pride themselves in good finishing and detailed work. Liffey Springs residents will enjoy the benefits of GSL’s commitment for many years to come.
