Infrastructure Development Code


  1. The Contractor shall supply and spread the fertiliser. A proprietary fertiliser suited to the species shall be applied where plants are showing signs of lack of fertility or to ensure maximum health and vigour.
  2. Application rates and type of fertiliser vary according to size and species. A typical application rate of fertiliser is 40g/m² of soil evenly spread within the drip line of the plant, but not against the trunk.
  3. Given the generally modified nature of soil within subdivisions it is essential that a suitable garden shall be prepared.
  4. Decomposed and treated organic matter shall be mixed into the soil used to backfill garden beds to a minimum depth of 500mm at a rate of 50:50 to ensure rapid establishment of plants and shrubs.
