In 2013 Eastern Guruma became responsible for designing and constructing landscaping for Kangi Camp at Fortescue Metals’ Solomon Mine. This project involved the challenge of establishing a lawn on sloping banks around the accommodation facilities; the Eastern Guruma landscaping team used a hydro-mulcher to first seed the banks with grass, which allowed them to plant and condition the lawn on the sloping areas without risk of injury to employees working on steep slopes.

Now that the lawn is established, the team use an autonomous mower operated by a remote control to mow the lawn, as part of ongoing landscaping maintenance at Kangi Camp. The ongoing Grounds Maintenance contract involves maintenance of lawns, plants and keeping all camp areas tidy, as well as improvements to landscaping around Kangi Camp and other camps. Recent works include a beautification project at Kangi Camp, landscaping around Solomon mine site offices, and extensive spray programs for control of weeds.
