In 2008, Built Environs contracted Outside Ideas to landscape the new connector road at Hallett Cove. The 25,000 square metre site included areas which needed imported topsoil and soil stabilisation, but had declines so steep abseiling equipment was required for access.

The project included 40,000 plants and trees, soil stabilisation, an irrigation system to some of the planted areas and 2,500 cubic metres of mulch. The project was completed in 12 weeks, and with native plants, the growth over the first summer was tremendous.

Outside Ideas maintained the site for 12 months before the client extended the contract. This project was awarded Best Commercial Construction $100,000 – $500,000 by the Landscape Association of South Australia in 2009.
