Docklands Secrets - September 2011

Docklands Secrets - September 2011 Image

Where the grass is greener …

NewQuay West residents are lucky.  Not only do they have their own new park, but their park has already had two lots of  instant turf.

The City of Melbourne insisted that the first lot of Quay Park grass be pulled up and removed because it was the wrong type.

It was replaced with a drought tolerant species.

A City of Melbourne spokesperson explained: “As part of the approval process for the Quay Park project, City of Melbourne had specified that warm season grasses should be planted in the new park. This was agreed by MAB.”

“City of Melbourne’s preference is to use drought tolerant turf species for our parks and open spaces, as they require less watering and stay green through all the seasons.”

“However, during the construction of Quay Park, City of Melbourne found that a different type of grass had been used. Following a discussion with MAB, it was agreed that the turf should be replaced to conform to what had been agreed for the park.”

“City of Melbourne understands that MAB’s contractor had mistakenly planted the wrong turf species.”
