As part of Moss Vales Sesquicentenary (150th) celebration, the Wingebarribee Shire Council undertook the landscape upgrade of Leighton Gardens. Moss Vale is the first major town when coming to the Southern Highlands from the South and the grand Leighton Gardens is located on the main street, being one of the districts beautiful highlights. Jonathan Purvis Landscapes provided concepts for the paved area and accordingly the council chose Borals Bradstone Old Town pavers in Grey Green, likening it to the Yorkstone paving specified. Laid in a random pattern, three sized pavers were used 600mm x 300mm, 450mm x 300mm and 300mm x 300mm covering approximately 260 square metres as a walk way and entrance to the park from the street. Almost the entire project was completed by the Council with their new landscaping team, consisting of Ryan Petty, Jake Uecker and Cory Milne, undertaking all the landscape work including paving, sandstone walls and garden beds. At a project cost of $300,000 they managed to complete the project over 5 months, starting in July 2013 and finishing in November the same year. The new and improved Leighton Gardens is sure to attract locals and visitors alike.
