Looking good!

 

UPDATE, December 8, 2011: Plantings are underway in amongst the blue metal. See Mike Gillam's comment posted on the full story page for the latest.

 

Yeperenye Pty Ltd appears to be putting itself in contention for the Alice Springs landscape design award, with this effort at its carpark adjacent to the ANZ bank on Parsons Street.

After chopping down mature trees, including a number of river gums, and clearing all other vegetation from the area in late October, the company promised that a "beautification program" would follow shortly.  It was to include "smaller, safer trees and shrubs". Perhaps they're coming, though not many people would start a garden by spreading thick piles of blue metal. KIERAN FINNANE comments.

 

The Alice Springs News Online has invited Yeperenye Pty Ltd to respond. To date they have not done so.
