Indoor plants and vertical gardens enhance our environment

Vertical gardens make the people welcome.

At Sydney Olympic Park main offices, Green Look ( https://www.greenlook.com.au/) were contracted to install a vertical garden at the entry. The wall provides a perfect welcoming environment at the foyer. The vertical garden has a lush range of plants and is automatically watered. Green Look provided their custom LED lighting that provides plants with the correct light spectrum for best growth. See https://evolvement.squarespace.com/plantspectrumledlights .

As you move further into the office, you will see that each worker has a number of plants to provide oxygen and improve the feel of the office. With the indoor plants, only 3 species were chosen for their hardiness in low light levels, Sanserveria, Aspidistrus, and Zamloculcas. Staff in the office have added nice features to the plantings like their favourite animals. For the indoor plants we used a 40mm layer of Knauf Urbanscape Green roll beneath each pot, this allows for water storage and a wicking bed to give plants a great start. Green Look will be looking after these plants for quite some time so we will see them grow. You can find plenty more of our green infrastructure projects at https://evolvement.squarespace.com/services .

Synthetic grass for children's play

GREEN LOOK PLAYGROUND SPECIALISTS

Green Look has recently completed some great playgrounds. We were entrusted to manage the play equipment, softfall base course and the installation of Royal Grass Silk 25. Royal Grass Silk 25 is soft to walk on and is very durable, which makes it great for this application.

Green Square is one of Sydney’s highest growth areas in the city precinct. It is where Green Look has created a wonderful play surface. Here we needed to ensure sub-base was compacted correctly before concrete edging was installed. Interesting play equipment and shade cover were installed. Green Look installed various depths of softfall to meet the 2.1m and 1.2m fall heights required. On this project we used a combination of 22mm and 35mm Proplay. Proplay is manufactured with recycled rubber from car dashboards, how’s that for recycling!. The softfall sheets also presents good drainage and consistent softfall safety qualities. Royal Grass Silk 25 was the play surface. The area is highly used and the grass is tough for this purpose. 2 years on, and it looks brand new! Royal Grass is a premium long lasting surface which is excellent for this application.

Next playground awarded to Green Look was the indoor playspace for a new shopping centre at Kirrawee East gardens. This project has softfall beneath and a nice mound that children love to play on.

The highlight of this indoor park is the mounds. The children love running up and down and rolling down these mounds.
