Pensar Civil Project

The lengths (of irrigation) we go to…
This is a temporary irrigation system we set up for a Main Roads / Pensar Civil project in Gladstone.
This irrigation set up will enable 3 months of plant and turf maintenance with no mains water supply.
Water cartage trucks load a 13,000 litre water tank, which in turn feeds the irrigation system to water the plants and turf we installed throughout the entire project.

Yalbalinga Cultural Garden

The new cultural garden was created in the courtyard of the Indigenous Higher Education Unit at the Strathfield Campus of ACU (Australian Catholic University). The gardens incorporate a Yarning Circle, Dancing Circle, Bush food & medicine, and tie together culture, spirituality, art and environment.

Materials for the project were sourced from throughout the eastern coast of Australia.
It was an absolute pleasure to be a part of this project and we were very happy with outcome.
