WaterUps® Commercial Projects

Macquarie Point, Hobart TAS

WaterUps® wicking systems were installed at Macquarie Point by Angus Stewart in 2019. The timber beds at the Edible Precinct house a variety of European plant species alongside native bush foods. It’s Australia’s largest edible precinct and is open to the public.

Roof terrace Crowne Plaza Hotel, Hobart TAS

In early 2020 WaterUps® were installed in the planters that formed the perimeter of The Deck roof garden restaurant in the newly built 9 storey Crowne Plaza Hotel in Hobart. WaterUps® were used to provide a consistent water supply, and reduced maintenance, for the edible natives given their exposure to sun and consistent wind.

Habitat House roof planters, Surry Hills NSW

In 2020 Green Options Landscaping installed round planter pots on the roof of Habitat House. The challenge of this design was to establish a system that provided rooftop greening that required only occasional watering given the difficult access conditions.

Planters at Hobart Airport, TAS

These decorative planters were part of an upgrade to the facade of Hobart Airport in May 2020. The planters were fitted with WaterUps® wicking cells by Horticultural and Landscape Supplies, our Tasmanian stockists. These wicking planters will provide a consistent water system to the plants and a low maintenance outcome.
