Lyndarum @ Wollert

Lyndarum @ Wollert is an AVJennings project, located in ex-pasture land on undulating basalt plains, bounded by Harvest Home Road, Epping Road and De Rossi Boulevard.  Ground Control was engaged in 2008 by AVJennings to prepare a landscape master plan for the 583 lot estate, develop entry zones, streetscape and reserve spaces, ensure the protection of the many remnant River Red Gums and protect and regenerate two rural conservation reserves within the development.

As part of the estate thematic, Ground Control highlighted Dianella amoena (Matted Flax-lily), a nationally threatened grassland species once prevalent in the Wollert area, as a major thematic sculptural element. Five iconic sculptures were installed in late December 2010 as part of the initial landscape works (design: Ground Control in collaboration with the Agency of Sculpture (Benjamin Gilbert); detailing, fabrication & installation: Agency of Sculpture). These elements are now part of a constructed landscape incorporating recycled basalt fieldstone walling and pavement, indigenous and other native plantings, protective fencing, and other treatments.

The Dianella amoena thematic has been supplemented with sculptural representations of the Golden Sun-moth, another threatened species once common to the basalt plains grasslands, again a collaboration between Agency of Sculpture and Ground Control.

Lyndarum @ Wollert incorporates two community reserves, both with playspaces and public art.  The first reserve was completed in 2012, with the second reserve due for construction later in 2018.
