Transforming SA Streetscapes
SA Irrigation & Landscaping regularly works with local and state government bodies, architects, builders, developers and civil engineers to deliver commercial and civil landscaping projects.
We transform run-down urban areas into thriving, iconic features; creating beautifully manicured landscapes to enhance the atmosphere of the community. These projects include relaxing, functional places to meet, reflect and embrace the South Australian lifestyle. It’s always exciting to be involved in integrating the community, fostering tourism and lifting South Australia to world-class standards.
Some of our most recent projects include:
Adelaide City Council Dog Park
Commissioned to enhance the Dog Park in Park 5 of the Adelaide Parklands, we transformed the park from bare and sparse to a feature of the Parklands. We redeveloped the area to include an attractive path lined with River Pebbles and easy-care, drought-resistant shrubbery. Large boulders completed the transformation, and the installation of an underground irrigation system ensures the park is a vibrant, flourishing area to exercise dogs.
War Memorial, North Terrace
An important cultural landmark commemorating those who served in the First World War, the War Memorial is a high-traffic, main thoroughfare that attracts tourists and locals alike. With park benches in amongst large English Oak and shady Wattle Trees, the War Memorial is a popular meeting and resting place between the SA Library and Adelaide University.
Commissioned to overhaul the expansive front gardens, this large project included rolling out new turf, paving, installing sprinklers and establishing a feature walkway. The feature walkway incorporated succulents in various colours amongst beautifully manicured hedging for a polished, yet natural look.
Frome Road Roundabout
Situated on the corner of Frome Road and War Memorial Drive, this prominent roundabout connects the Adelaide CBD with North Adelaide. Commissioned to enhance the roundabout’s gardens in keeping with Adelaide city design and style, we created a two-tone abstract design as part of the roundabout’s feature. Using two different shades of gypsum, we injected a fresh, modern look to the streetscape. The look was completed with mulch and drought-resistant shrubs in a central star pattern, with a single tree as a central focus point.
