Four Seasons Property Services is transforming Brightwater Commons

Here’s a project Four Seasons Property Services ( FSG Property Services) are busy working on at the moment. Brightwater Commons. Known for its spectacular water displays, they’re giving it a landscaping makeover, soon to be known as Ferndale Mall.

Imagine a mall with the dazzling dance of lights you’ve always enjoyed at Brightwater Commons. Picture gardens added to that. Lush flowing greenery.
We’re collaborating with some of the other contractors, as the plan for the landscaping was drawn up by a landscaping architect. We’re bringing the muscle.

We’re installing over 2 KMs of 50 MM irrigation mainline. This gives you an idea of the scope of what we’re doing. We’re adding new indigenous plants, transplanting larger old plants (this is no mean feat) and adding a modern and vibrant look to an old venue.

We’re bringing in big numbers

We’re bringing 2500m3 insitu topsoil. The idea is that we need flowing lines which wrap around the venue elegantly. We’re going for smaller, dainty plants with different textures and appeals, like dietes bicolour, crocosmia aurea, kniphofia praecox, freylinia tropica and lots more. We’ll be keeping the gardens in great condition with an ongoing maintenance plan, and we’ll also be adding zeolite to the top soil. This will help to retain moisture, keeping the garden flourishing throughout drought conditions.

The highlight?

Each season will see flowers blooming in a different shade, giving you a unique colour scheme four times a year. We’re also transplanting a gigantic Celtis africana. That takes a very particular skill. We’re also adding Corobrik paving in a burgundy colour, with face bricks to match the trees.

It all sounds very wonderful, and believe us, it will be. Here’s the reason we’re miracle workers. We’re pulling this magic out of a hat with a teeny tiny time frame. The deadline is July / August (we’re aiming for July) which means we’re pretty much working around the clock. We’re implementing industry best practices and we look forward to seeing the general public enjoy the new and improved mall.
