Fresh Landscape Design is working with Upper Lachlan Shire Council and local community groups to develop a Streetscape Themes Guide for future improvements to the town centres of Crookwell, Gunning, Taralga, Bigga, Binda, Collector, Laggan, Dalton, Grabben Gullen, Tuena, Jerrawa and Breadalbane.

An online community survey was run to gather community comment. A schools ideas competition was held to capture the ideas of local kids. The Streetscape Improvements - Community Engagement Report summarises community view and ideas.

Fresh Landscape Design won the chance to be part of the Australian Institute of Landscape Designers and Managers' first ever show garden at the Melbourne International Flower and Garden Show (MIFGS) in 2014 'Place Grow Shift'. MIFGS is a busy place - full of pretend gardens conjured up in just a few days after months or even years of planning to give the illusion of having been there forever.

Every now and then we get to design a completely different project. The 107 Projects Roof Garden in Redfern, NSW is home base for many Milkwood training workshops as well as the 107 Projects Gallery. For us it is one to remember not just for the awards it received but also as example of what can be achieved by an enthusiastic group of people determined to build a garden using planet-friendly methods. Built on top of the freshly waterproofed concrete slab on the first floor, the garden produces food for the local community, showcases permaculture garden techniques, provides teaching resources, and is a place to hang out at lunchtime or host events.

This semester Chris studied landscape design as part of a Bachelor of Horticulture. The major  project for this unit was to redesign a neglected and remnant roadway at the Wagga campus of Charles Sturt University to create a pedestrian precinct. A vibrant new place evolved in the plan, complete with popup cafe, picnic areas, shady lawns and an amphitheatre.

 UNIVERSITY OF CANBERRA STUDENT CENTRAL

 

 

 

The breezeway in the University of Canberra Student Services area was refurbished to rejuvenate a thoroughfare space. This was a truly collaborative project with FLD working as the lead landscape architect along with other architects and structural and mechanical engineers. The project included the selection of street furniture, fittings and paving designed to project the interior design theme outside. A sunken walkway provided an innovative solution to allow access to the foundation stone while maintaining the pedestrian access to surrounding buildings.

 

 

 

 

 

 

The Centenary Trail takes walkers and cyclists around Canberra through nature reserves, farmland, parks, lookouts, campsites and the Parliamentary Triangle. In 2013 we designed and superintended the new sections of the trail with Harris Hobbs Landscapes. What a fabulous gift from the ACT Government to the people of Canberra and visitors for the Centenary of Canberra!

Erskine Business Park

 

 

Erskine Business Park

 

 

 

 

 

 

Erskine Business Park is a rapidly growing precinct in Western Sydney based around a biodiversity corridor and busy roads with many large trucks. As part of Penrith City Council’s Erskine Business Park Local Infrastructure and Estate Identity Enhancement Program we provided landscape architecture services and co-ordinated the design team.

The end result included enhancing the existing entry signs with planting and sculptural elements, development of a new DDA compliant bus shelter design to be used throughout Penrith, creating a recreation area complete with outdoor gym, table tennis and picnic facilities, street tree planting, mass plantings to enhance the streetscapes, small seating areas and a plan for bush regeneration and weeding in the biodiversity conservation area. The result is an aesthetically pleasing yet practical landscape that provides amenity for people working in the business park while protecting the adjacent biodiversity area.
