Soilco goes Wet and Wild

When Landscape Solutions needed to get the best out of the existing site soil at Sydney largest family theme park Wet’N’Wild, who did they call? Soilco!

Our companies worked together on the landscaping package of the $80 million Construction project. Approximately 50,000m3 of site soil was treated in different ways based on access to material in areas and progress of works.

Landscape Solutions – Australia’s No.1 ‘full-service’ landscape company took advantage of Soilco’s expertise – hiring a loader, a screen and one of our trained operators for the entire operation. Together, we utilised a Mustang wheeled mounted trommel with a 20mm revolving drum screen. After screening, lime, gypsum and fertiliser were bucket blended to soil testing recommendations. The ameliorated soil was then spread as a soil underlay for the spray grass native mix.

Other works onsite included Soilco Premium Compost being spread with lime and gypsum to improve soil on slopes. The Soilco cultivator was then utilised to mix the soil improvers with the insitu soil.

The final result at Wet’N’Wild showcased the benefit of engaging Soilco’s expertise and equipment. Screening services were complimented by soil testing and supply of soil improvement product. The Soilco spreader and cultivator were on hand to work on difficult areas, and growing media with different textures and nutritional values were created to suit the diversity of plants in the landscape design.
