2. Introduction In this final Project for Constructed Landscape, students are required to form a group of 6-7 people to complete this project in a group. Each group is asked to prepare a landscape proposal for an area equivalent to a 10m x 10m within Taylors University Lakeside Campus. Our group had chosen our 10m x 10m site which located near lecture theatre 20 of Block E, an open space. After choosing our site, we need to come up with a green space proposal for our site which includes a concept, master plan, planting plan, costing and construction detail as well as a maintenance plan for this project. 3. Site Analysis 10m 10m Our site is located at block E besides the strategic development & international relations office. It has a great view towards the basketball court till the commercial block. The site is 10x10 with a few railings around facing the office wall. There is currently no walkway that connects to the site but a bridge is planned. The site is currently undeveloped and unused till further notice. The surroundings - Mainly surrounded with railings - One of the view has a roof and it is also facing towards another building - Currently there is nothing in the site but it has a huge wall with a few windows around 4. The Views from the site - One of the views is facing towards the basketball court, block E parking ground and also the futsal court. -The 2nd view is facing towards the commercial block which is also opposite the Taylors University. - The 3rd view is facing towards the 2nd block behind the campus which has the same site but it is much bigger. The last view is facing a wall. - The last view is behind the wall of the whole block E 5. Sun comes from the west Wind blows from south east to north west 6. Concept Zen Garden A low maintenance decoration that is relaxing and helps stressed students to achieve inner peace. Walkway Able to let people to walk around the site and relax Bench To allow Bridge To connect the site to the walkway. 7. Vertical Planting Mitigates air pollution levels while providing a nice view. Bushes Act as a natural fence for our site while making our site greener. Pebble Foot Massage Commonly used for wellness as reflexology paths. Relieves stress. 8. Master Plan Scale 1: 50 BUSHES: An eco-friendly way to cover the whole garden instead of using railings. PEBBLE FOOT MASSAGE: Reflexology purpose and able to lower blood pressure and relief stress. Low maintanence. WALKWAY: Provides a dry path for people to walk WOODEN BENCHES: Allow people to rest VERTICAL PLANTING: Able to mitigate air pollution levels by lowering the impact of an urban environment ZEN GARDEN: Picturesque look and it costs really affordable and also easy to maintain GREEN GRASS (LAWN) : Provides a natural feel for those who visits the place 9.

Construction Details Construction Detail 1 Water flowing system in the pond In the green space, a shallow pond is located near to the vertical garden, surrounding the Zen garden. There is pebble foot massage at the bottom of the shallow pond. A pond filter that uses a pump inside the tank to pump water up to a filter box that's placed above the tank off to the side so the clean water can flow back into the pond. Freelin-Wade's PVC tubing (vinyl tubing) is lightweight clear tubing and is extremely flexible. Its smooth interior and exterior prevents sediment accumulation and makes it impervious to bacterial action. Filter Flexible vinyl tubing PumpPre-filter 12. Construction details 2 Drain away irrigation 3/4" irrigation tubing Particle filter stainless mesh Water source always on Plant food injector dosatron DMF11 Plant food tank water soluble maxsea 16:16:16 Orbit digital hose timer ( battery) Initial: 2 times daily, 30minutes Modify as required Pressure regulator Water usage: 3gal/hr per linear foot Daily run time: 3hrs/day Drain tube connect to sewer 13. Irrigation parts Hose Splitter - Connect the hose splitter to your faucet. This allows you to have access to your water but also provides an 'always on' connection to your water timer. Be sure the faucet and splitter valve remain open to ensure consistent watering. Consider covering the valves using stretch wrap to prevent accidental shut off. Digital Hose Timer - The Orbit Digital Hose Timer works best for this application since it allows for 1 minute run times, which reduce water waste. It also allows for 6 hour intervals so you can water 4 times a day, if necessary. We recommend each living wall have its own independant battery operated timer to insure reliable and easy-to-adjust watering cycles. Food Injector - The Dosatron DM11F is a water operated unit that adds a specific concentration of food to the system with each watering cycle. It uses water pressure to operate and is designed for low water flow. Venturi injectors can be used for large, high flow systems. Liquid food tanks can be made from 6 inch ABS tube for a thin profile that will be completely hidden among the plants. Particle Filter - A mesh filter prevents clogs in drip lines. Inline stainless filters provide long service and can be easily flushed clean on a regular schedule. Make sure your particle filter is downstream from your food injector. Pressure Regulator - The pressure regulator keeps the water pressure low to prevent hose connection blow-outs, and slows the watering rate. Slower watering allows plants to absorb the water, reducing waste. 30 PSI is common for most irrigation applications. Tubing - inch irrigation tubing is inexpensive and easy to use. This common type of irrigation is standard for most landscape applications. Slip connectors are quick and easy to install. Garden hose with threaded connectors are extremely easy to use. Button Drip Emitters - Button emitters come standard in gallon per hour. Barbed connectors are easily punched into the inch irrigation tubing. Place one 1/2 gallon per hour button emitter at the very top of each pocket row. Make the drip visible for ease of inspection and replacement. If the top edge is sloped, pressure compensating emitters will maintain a consistent drip from top to bottom. Use irrigation emitters at the top row only. Water will wick down the entire wall. Longer and slower watering times allow for more complete water absorption and less waste. Drain Tray - Extra water will drip from the bottom edge. You can simply let it drain into a planter or garden below, or you can use a small drip tray (2 x 2 inches) to direct the water to a sewer connection, or into a floor drain. Allow the water to drain completely by keep the 14. bottom pocket clear of the bottom of the tray. Tuck the bottom flap into the tray to prevent drips. Plant Food - We recommend using MaxSea 16:16:16 Seaweed Based Fertilizer. It is a gentle food that can be used for hydroponic feeding and is mostly made from organic nutrients. Organic nutrients are preferred because they encourage active microbiology in the soil and reduce the problem of salt build-up from chemical fertilizers. 15. Maintenance Plan Schedule January General Start planning next seasons garden. Check condition and safety of structures such as seats, vertical garden or pond. Repaint, repair, re-varnish or rectify as required. Check for infestation of pests such as rats, mosquitoes or wasp nests. If found, seek professional advice for removal. Flowers and Plants Check plants for pests and diseases, and treat if found. Prune shrubs and hedges.Divide any overcrowded perennials. Replant any dead orwilted plants. Tidy up any old foliage and cut back old foliage on perennials Apply new mulch to flowerbeds if necessary. Apply organic fertiliser once a month to all plants except the roses. Lawn Aerate lawn and apply sufficient lime and gypsum onto lawn. Do not fertilise lawn. First mowing with high blades, when grass starts growing. Re-turf or re-seed any bare patches. Tidy up edgings. Pond Annual cleaning of pond. Remove dead or wilting plant materials. Check condition of pebble foot massage path. Rectify as required.
