Thanks for visiting the Harcourt Centre project page. This page was set up to provide visitors with information about what was done and why.

What was done?

A number of trees and herbaceous plants were installed within existing below-ground planters. Compost and mulch were also added to improve soil quality. Valuable existing species were retained to provide structure and reduce waste. Some existing planting was modified to improve appearance.

Why was the project undertaken?

The project was undertaken following the clients (Iput) to provide additional colour, interest and environmental benefit to the existing planted areas. The proposal is intended to positively contribute to the streetscape and sense of identity of the building.

What was planted?

The planting palette included a number of trees and perennial species. Plants were chosen for their resilience, environmental benefits and to maximise ornamental return. A survey of existing species in the wider landscape also helped to direct decision-making.
