When the homes are built and the people come to live at Googong, they’ll need spaces like this (under construction, above) to live their lives and create a community. And when these spaces are built well, they look like this (below) in a short space of time…
It’s all about space. Leaving enough of it free of homes so that there’s enough room for people to get out into it, and coincidentally build communities. At least that’s what landscape architect Matt Frawley thinks, and it’s this philosophy that sits very comfortably with the property group he works with.
“It has always been about making communities and so our focus has been on public open space – we put in two to three times more than other developer: at Googong this translates to around 24 per cent of the total space.” Matt believes that making real, genuine-scaled spaces available for passive and active recreation is a critical part of the magic in watching communities form. “With enough of the right spaces, people want to get out into it.”
What is TerraCottem?
TerraCottem is a proven-in-the-field soil conditioner, that’s supported by a technical service package.
The support comes from the TerraCottem team. They offer industry-respected experience and are ready to advise on projects, big or small. They’ll work out the specs. They’ll make relevant suggestions. They’ll arrange the how-to training. Their aim is to make every planting with TerraCottem a success.
TerraCottem developed from a University of Ghent research project to successfully grow plants on the edge of the nutrient poor, arid Sahara. The results showed that a specific mix of hydro-absorbent, nutritive and root stimulating components produced swift, dramatic results. The formula became known as TerraCottem and this is what it can do…
Most sports field renovations or reconstructions take place within a limited window between seasons. TerraCottem added during the site prep, gives impressive root establishment fast, buffering the new playing surface so it doesn’t take a hammering before establishment. And once established, the new playing surface will cope with greater traffic, all with less irrigation.
