AMP – Ocean Keys Shopping Centre
Ocean Keys is a large shopping centre situated in Clarkson North of the river and has extensive gardens all the way around the entire city block with numerous trees and attractive garden beds and driveways that we have recently taken over the maintenance of. We are in the process of upgrading them with new mulch and planting attractive flowers in some of the garden beds. We have also upgraded the reticulation and maintain that as it’s the life blood of presenting a pleasant, and pleasing entrance to a well-managed and presented shopping centre making shopping a little more pleasant.
Watercorp – Platinum Waterwise Business Awards
Ocean Keys Shopping Centre is one of two businesses that have been awarded Platinum Waterwise Business of the Year for 2020.
Ocean Keys has recently become a mulch convert, describing it as an easy to way to create a good-looking garden while saving on the water bill. Mulching helps by maintaining moisture around the plant’s roots and can save up to 20% of water used for irrigation. However not all mulch is made equal; make sure you select the right one for your garden to get the most bang for your buck.
Good soil is the foundation of a healthy waterwise garden, and the healthier your soil is, the more drought-resistant your plants will be.
Sandy soil, commonly found in WA, has a low water and nutrient holding capacity. Here are some handy tips on how to improve your soil:
Mulch is like sunscreen for your soil
Applying mulch to your garden can greatly reduce evaporation loss, improve the soil, reduce plant stress and weed growth, as well as improve the appearance of your garden.
Lease Equity – Kingsway City
We took over the management of the gardens nearly 5 years ago not long after LEASE EQUITY gained management of the 15 odd acres of extensive gardens and lawns. Kingsway city is more than a shopping centre but a whole village with nearly every fast-food outlet and service / repair outfit in Perth represented with two of the major supermarkets as well. We inherited the gardens in a less than satisfactory condition with virtually no retic effectively working and not much in the way of gardens and we have transformed it into an oasis of colour, and interesting flowers with avenues of trees and shade to park under, with more to come as it transfers into the leading shopping venue north of the river.
Spencer Road Family Practice
An approx. 3-acre medical centre with extensive lawns and gardens around the multitude of medical facilities. With 12 doctors, several dentists, pharmacy, yoga centre, physiotherapist, podiatrist, clinical labs, and physiologist as well, it is a very busy place and managing the gardens with this much traffic is interesting. we have maintained and improved the gardens and resuscitated the reticulation. We have also attended to maintenance on the buildings and gardens here for nearly 5 years now and improved them slowly as it is the first thing the older community remark on, the pleasant and welcoming gardens and keeps them with a happy disposition.
