We’ve recently been involved in the Wildflower Capital Initiative to redevelop the Northbridge Tunnels. Our team installed 17 grasstrees surrounding the tunnel portals, its wonderful to see such beautiful Native WA plants displayed in such a prominent area. Make sure you keep your eye out next time you’re driving past.
The 1,000 year old grasstree is progressing well in it’s new home in Campground Park, Yanchep. Grasstrees Australia rescued this amazing specimen from Two Rocks in March 2017, and it is by far the largest Xanthorrhoea Preissii we have come across. A massive congratulations to Capricorn Yanchep and Horizon West for their involvement in this wonderful project.
Grasstrees Australia proudly installed a number of Xanthorrhoea Preissi at Yagan Square including a feature grasstree well over 300 years old. There was also a number of Kingia Australis installed as part of the amazing landscape. We are honored to be a part of such a wonderful redevelopment, definitely worth a visit next time you’re in the CBD.
Keep your eye out for our grasstrees installed at the Perth Airport DFO.
We are extremely proud to be part of this landscape, stores open October 3rd, 2018.
Grasstrees Australia was honoured to be awarded Silver Exhibitor 2018 for our display at the Perth Garden Festival. Many thanks to the organisers and all who attended for such a successful weekend.
Recent completion of the landscape at the newly renovated Perth Airport International Terminal highlights WA Xanthorrhoea Preissii as the feature plant species.
These particular grasstree specimens were extracted many months previously from Perth Airport sites , nursery stabilised at Grasstrees Australia facility for their return to Perth Airport as the focal point in this landscape project.
A great win for our environment.
With pride Grasstrees Australia were announced ‘NATIONAL FINALISTS’ in the 2014 Nursery & Garden Industry Awards, Best Specialty Garden Centre category.
To have Grasstrees Australia’s commitment in the preservation of WA Native plants recognised on this level is an honour. To then be judged across a national forum, with winners announced at a Nursery & Garden Industry Australia (NGIA) function held in Darling Harbour Sydney recently, certainly raises the profile of our very special WA Native flora, of course in particular Grasstrees (Xanthorrhoea Preissii) and Zamia palms (Macrozamia Riedlei).
Grasstrees Australia are proud to be involved with the Gateway WA Perth Airport and Freight Access project, Perth’s biggest ever infrastructure project.
Along with the team at Gateway WA, Grasstrees Australia staff is passionate with environmental care. By professionally removing grasstrees (Xanthorrhoea Preissii) and Macrozamia Riedlei Palms within the clearing zones, under license from the DPAW (Department of Parks and Wildlife) these WA Native plants are rescued from destruction. Following nursery stabilisation at our facility in Wattle Grove, rescued plants will be returned to the Gateway WA project in approx. mid 2015 as a major attraction in landscape design at that time.
We are mutually striving to minimise any adverse environmental impact and are striving to sustain our native WA flora treasures.
May 2013 saw our final installation of nursery held grasstrees and macrozamia palms at the Joondalup Health Campus.
The project began in February 2009, with an excess of 350 Xanthorrhoea Preissii and Macrozamia Riedlei extracted from the developing site, that has today become Joondalup Health Campus.
As each phase progressed, plants were removed from their natural habitat at this site, returned to GTA nursery facility for stabilisation and a nursery hold period. They were then returned upon completion of each stage, into the now well developing landscape at the hospital.
John Holland’s Joondalup Health Campus Redevelopment team, with whom we worked closely on throughout this project, are congratulated and sincerely thanked by all of us here at Grasstrees Australia. The professional, expert and efficient work ethics of this team is acknowledged by us. It is our pleasure to have been associated with this project.
A great environmental example.
