New Irrigation System

Construction Started: Early April 2011
Completed: Early June 2011

Ensuring Marine Parade Gardens are presented in pristine condition is an ongoing challenge for parks and reserves staff.

In a high-profile area close to the CBD, the gardens and lawn are among the city’s most popular scenic attractions and provide the perfect setting for the Art Deco Weekend’s Great Gatsby Picnic.

So the gardens are maintained to a high standard, and that includes using reel rather than ride-on mowers to achieve a well-manicured expanse of lawn.

Most recently, the lawn came in for special attention. Paspalum had infiltrated the grass and, as part of the regular maintenance cycle, the turf was uplifted and replaced.

That work, carried out every few years, provided an opportunity for installing a new irrigation system, which will ensure the green sward is well-watered and help keep it looking in tip-top condition year round.

Work commenced in early April, but was delayed for several weeks because of very wet weather. The job was completed in early June, when the ground conditions allowed Council to operate machinery and sow new grass seed.
