The site will contain aggregate pathways, sculptures, benches and picnic areas for use by the public, against a scenic backdrop of indigenous trees.
The pathways have been cast and endemic plants that make up the fauna and flora planted.
FSG, the landscape contractor, noted that the site was very sensitive so an ecologist removed the top layer of soil and certain plants and stored them safely until after the earthworks were completed. The soil will be supplemented with water retention agents and microbes alongside some other products to ensure the best viability of vulnerable and protected species.
The aim of the project is to give visitors the impression that the picnic site has been in existence for centuries, while FSG’s ongoing site maintenance will ensure the area remains pristine, it said.
