- 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.
- 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.
- Given the generally modified nature of soil within subdivisions it is essential that a suitable garden shall be prepared.
- 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.
