The Hume Global Learning Centre – Sunbury, is a council project where principle contractors CICG engaged Melbourne Landscaper Red’s Landscaping and Civil to construct the soft and hard landscape.
It truly is an exciting space which is sure to prepare the community of Hume for the digital future, recreating what a library can be to the next generation, turning it into an exciting meeting place for young and old.
Public Spaces like the Hume Global Learning Centre provide great public amenity, especially when combined with an appropriate landscape design. The result is an accessible, inclusive public space for the enjoyment of the people of Hume.
The Red’s team have been very happy with the outcome of this project. Completing the project within budget and timeframe.
- Construction and form work of large staircase. Black colour finish.
- Black and white exposed concrete.
- Earthmoving and excavation.
- Large turf area.
- Fully controlled Wi-Fi irrigation system for all new soft landscape.
- Concrete sleeper retaining walls
- Mass planting of native trees and shrubs

The Red’s Landscaping team were thrilled to work on this project with the Hume City Council and appreciate the continued support and business with council and contractors to make spaces like this possible.
Landscaping of the Hume Global Learning Centre – Sunbury
The concrete formwork for the long flights of stairs were a challenge for the team at Red’s Landscaping Melbourne. The concrete stairs in exposed aggregate are a stunning feature of the landscape. Mudstone Rock Boulders were used to soften the look of the retaining walls and blend the stairs into the expansive drought resistant lawns.
Drought Resistant Native Plants
The landscape design of the Hume Global Learning Centre included drought resistant eucalyptus trees and native ground covers. The green eucalyptus trees in the planter pots help to soften the new brick walls of the learning centre.
Lomandra Garden Beds at Hume Global Learning Centre Sunbury
Garden beds along the Global Learning Centre walls were planted with drought resistant lomandra. These provided a pleasant green space between the exposed aggregate footpaths and the brick walls.
