One of Canberra's best loved events, Floirade, is set to return next month for it's biggest year yet. Over one million flowers will bloom in Canberra's Commonwealth Park with the even set to run from 17th September to 16th October.
In a surprise move, Floriade has made history by transporting 192 planter boxes from a Canberra nursery and installed them at Floriade. These planter boxes will make up one tenth of the total floral display and it means that no additional soil or physical beds needed to be dug to accommodate these additional flowers.
The team at StrathAyr Turf Systems have been working with Floriade for the past two years on the designs of the planter boxes. Chief Operations Officer Peter Casimaty, is delighted to be involved with the event.
“The innovation of the StrathAyr planter boxes brings another element of design to Floriade and enables more flexibility in use of the park. The technology has been adapted from StrathAyr portable sports fields, portable tennis courts and drop-in cricket wickets,” commented Casimaty.
Running from 17th September to 16th October, the annual festival is much more than just a flower show. For further information or to see the full schedule of events and activities, visit the website: www.floriadeaustralia.com.
