Works Overview

Wetland Solutions was able to complete this project on-time and within budget. The project underlines the benefits of implementing a wetland planting when conditions are best suited to wetland plant establishment.

Works included:

  • Weed control
  • Supply and spread mulch (276m³)
  • Plant supply (7,902)
  • Planting & maintenance


Longford Park Pond plays a key role in trapping sediments contained in stormwater run-off from the surrounding new housing and road catchment areas.

Stormwater sediment control ponds generally require maintenance every 15 – 20 years; this requires the excavation/removal of sediments and re-planting.


The project was designed to facilitate the maintenance up-grade of an existing 15 year old sediment control pond and public amenity.

Newly constructed forebays with planted deep and shallow zones improves the retention of sediments.


Weed control, spread bark mulch and establish the associated riparian and amenity plantings during the winter.

Aquatic weed control and establish the wetland planting during the spring/summer.

Ongoing maintenance, ecological weed control and plant replacements.
