In October 2011 Outside Ideas was awarded the Days Road Basin portion of the South Road Superway contract. The site forms part of the Regency Park Golf Course and is used as a stormwater collection basin to collect runoff from local streets.

Following on from this, in April 2013 Outside Ideas was awarded the main landscaping contract. This included over 12,000 square metres of concreting, the removal of existing paths and driveways, kerbing infills, an exposed aggregate concrete footpath running the length of the site, as well as excavation and civil works. The scope included 18 bio retention basins to filter stormwater as it runs off the road, constructed using waterproof liners and multiple layers of filtered sand to clean the water before it is released. The new wetlands feature aquatic planting and rock work, as well as over 200,000 plants and trees.

The project ran for more than 18 months and was completed in 2014.
