Supporting City of Swan on their redevelopment of Ellenbrooks main street, The Broadway.

The City of Swan has recently completed Stage 3 of the construction on The Broadway, Ellenbrook. This project involves duplicating the lanes on the busy section between The Promenade and Bordeaux Lane, easing congestion and safety on the road. This project included the clearing of the current vegetation and the establishment of new landscaping in the verges along the road to replace the cleared vegetation.

 

For this project Plantrite contract grew the landscaping stock required by the City of Swan. The order was for in excess of 20,000 plants, supplied in 140mm pots. The project required a range of species including Acacia lasiocarpa Prostrate, Calothamnus quadrifidus ‘Clean and Green’, Eremophila glabra Prostrate ‘Kalbarri Carpet’, Myoporum parvifolium ‘Yareena’ and Olearia axillaris ‘Mini’. This mix of species allows for a great diversity of ground covering plants and will allow the verge to have a great mix of colours and points of interest year-round.

Plants Grown

20,989

Timeframe

6 months

The project required Plantrite to contract grow the requested stock order over a 6 month timeframe. Careful planning and preparation was required to ensure all stock was suitable for the project, with the plants delivered over three deliveries to allow for easy planting. The 140mm pot size selected for the project allows for a more established look in a high traffic zone.

 

The planting has resulted in a biodiverse main street, which along with the species selected for other projects by the City of Swan has turned Ellenbrook into a native and sustainable area.

 

The City of Swans decision to contract grow meant that they were able to have the exact species required for the project. They were able to keep up to date on their order through monthly green stock reports, giving them peace of mind their order was being looked after.
