CLS was engaged by the City of Burnside Council to landscape the Constable Hyde Memorial Garden.
The landscape design was created by WAX Design. CLS worked closely with the City of Burnside to ensure that each individual play equipment had an appropriate fall zone with either rubber soft fall pavement, organic soft fall mulch or turf.
The site is surrounded by beautifully well-established trees which was a challenge when working around tree protection zones. With the help from Shane Selway (ARB Consultant), CLS was able to execute a high quality project in a complex surrounding environment. The raw elements like bluestone sitting boulders, musical timber clunking bollard, lizard sculpture, natural log edging and log steppers complemented each other well in this natural playground space.
The new perimeter fencing, lighting, concrete footpath and newly turfed open space will provide for a well secured and enjoyable space with plenty of seating for kids, the parents and the entire community. Constable Hyde Memorial Garden can be found on the corner of Tusmore Avenue and Kensington Road, Leabrook.
