/Commercial landscaping at Deakin University Waurn Ponds campus, Geelong

King’s Landscaping Group¬†worked with Civilex Victoria on commercial landscaping¬†works at Deakin University in Waurn Ponds, developing key infrastructure for students and visitors to the campus. We installed more than 10 000 square metres of landscaping for footpaths, a roundabout and sporting field. Read More

The sporting field has become a world-class performance and training facility for professional athletes and local football teams, including the Geelong Cats.

One of the biggest impacts of the project was the quantity of turf laid. This involved significant earthworks, including careful cultivation and preparation of the land, followed by the all-important irrigation install.

Hard landscaping included bluestone pathways, linking up key buildings, providing a safe, accessible and visually exciting thoroughfare.

The garden beds feature rock and steel edging, and planting of semi-advanced trees created a mature and established landscape, blending in with the existing vegetation.

Other landscape features included timber and concrete seating, handrails, wheelchair guide, anti-skates, circular steel edging planter boxes and an entrance sculpture

Following completion of the build, we continued to oversee the life and quality of the softscapes with weekly maintenance services.
