Project Description

Marian College is undergoing an extensive Staged redevelopment which includes a number of new buildings and renovated buildings.  We originally did a small Planting plan for the school back in 2016 with the Master Plan design starting in 2020.  The aim was to introduce multiple outdoor areas with ample shade and seating throughout the school.  Spill out areas adjacent to buildings, interesting planting and sculptural elements all feature in the Master Plan. 
The design also included the creation of temporary spaces with a lifespan of a few years which will be utilised in the future for new buildings. The first, Second and Third stages have been installed.  The first stage of the project was a temporary area, which in the future will be utilised for a new building.  In the mean time it includes seating, wicking garden beds, seasonal flowers and shade. The area has now become the photographic hub of the school with the seasonal plants getting replanted. The wicking garden beds hold water in them, so only need to be topped up every two weeks or so. When the area has the new building constructed, these wicking garden beds will be relocated to their new home where they will be used to grow herbs and vegetables. Wicking garden beds are an ideal solution for all kinds and sizes of raised or inground gardens. Why not check out this short video on using wicking gardens or self watering pots.
