BULBULA integrated AGRO industry Park

BULBULA, ETHIOPIA, 18 May 2021 – The Bulbula Integrated Agro-Industrial Park, which occupies 271 hectares of land in Western Oromia Regional State, has been inaugurated in the presence of Abiy Ahmed, Prime Minister of the Federal Democratic Republic of Ethiopia.

The Bulbula Integrated Agro-Industrial Park, strategically located between Lake Langano and Lake Abiyata in the heart the Great Rift Valley of Ethiopia, includes a bank, a waste treatment plant, a health clinic, a police station, training centres and managerial facilities.

As we Noor landscaping are a team of professionals specializing in landscaping with an extensive knowledge in the art of designing, and horticulture science with vast experience. We believe that we have the required knowledge and experience to ensuring state of the art technology beautification endeavor at the BULBULA IAIP prefecture on approximate plot size of 40 hectare. Our company has taken the time to visit the site and deeply evaluated the previously prepared plan by the consultant.

By taking in to consideration the personal visit and the plan

We redisgned the  plan view for BULBULA IAIP which is found below.

For successful implementation and establishment of the proposed landscaping this document aims to cover the following key areas:

  • All imported soils will be uncontaminated and from a recognised area.
  •  Information regarding the components and volumes of soils will be available.
  • Plants will be suitable for the soil type – this will determine plant selection.
  • Imported top soils will be in accordance with soil expert specification for Top Soil.
  • Any stripped soil to be stockpiled will first be graded and prepared for storage.
  • Topsoil will be stored separately from subsoil and all other excavated materials in a separate area of the site.
  • If soil has to be stored for more than six months, the stockpile will be sown with a deep rooting grass/ legume seed mixture (or other vegetation appropriate to the specific nature of the top soil)
  • Stockpiles left for long periods in situ will be managed to prevent seeding from adjacent land.
  • All tree and shrub composts to be used during planting will be peat free.
  •  All debris and weed will be cleared from the planting areas prior to the soil preparation.
  • All virgin areas of soil will be cultivated to a minimum depth of 200mm using appropriate machinery. This will break up compaction, bury perennial weeds and expose dormant wild flower seeds.
  • Where new planting is to occur a rotavator will then be used to create a fine till and to incorporate multi purpose top soil where necessary. This will be added to the existing soil and this will be uncontaminated and from a recognised area.
  •  A layer of mulch will be applied to the surface of the planting areas following planting, to reduce the colonisation of weeds. This layer will consist of treated bark chippings, to a depth of 50mm.
  •  Where existing soil has been compacted due to construction actives, this will be cultivated and the required soil ameliorations incorporated prior to planting being carried out.
  •  Tree pits will be excavated as detailed within Section 5 below.
  •  New trees will have an area of at least 500mm² mulched with the tree centrally located unless otherwise stated.

A layer of bark chip mulch, 50-100 mm in depth will be applied following planting to reduce the colonisation of weeds and to assist with moisture retention

One of the main factors in plantation works includes but not limited to the following major points:

  • Plant selection standards from nursery and wild collections
  • Handling of plants at the time of transportation and
  • Their temporary stay at site

Follow up and Maintenance

A strict and programmed site follow up will be established with in the contract period. There are many method of site maintaining works, watering and the next table shows the activities to be performed for different places of the site.


  • In March/April plants will be checked for survival.
  • Any plants that have died will be replaced using the same methods for planting.
  • Any loose soil around the base of the new plants and any plants lifted by frost will be firmed down by foot.
  • Mulching depth will be checked and reinstated to a depth of 50mm if inadequate.
  • Regular watering will occur. See section 8.0 Irrigation.


  • Plants will be inspected and checked for any diseases or problems and rectified as appropriate.
  • The mulch will be checked and reinstated if found to be inadequate.
  • Weeds will be removed by hand if found to be growing in the mulched area.
  • The plants will be formatively pruned where identified as necessary to ensure good long term form.
  • Regular watering will occur. See section 8.0 Irrigation.


  • Ties and plants will be checked to establish whether or not they have a secure root‐hold and can remain upright.
  • Stakes and supports will be removed where plants indicate they can support themselves.
  • Mulching depth will be checked and reinstated if inadequate.
  • Regular watering will continue if prolonged summer temperatures extend into the season or if drying winds occur. See section 8.0 Irrigation.






GRASS TURF to gardens and “non Garden” front areas.

        All turfs to be laid on a dressed fine raked tilth to be formed from levelled and raked soil which has been compressed.  All to be laid with tightly butting joints and to be laid off boards and cut around any features.  Tamp down turfs to ensure firm root contact with levelled and compacted soil bed. Watering regime to be weather dependable and to ensure turf remains moist until it is well established.


One of the main factors for fast-maintained garden is watering. We will use water sprinklers and hoze which will be available to different places of the site in order to give continuous water supply.


Garden places which need followup

Maintenance Activities



Shurbs and trees

Mulching, water harvesting,post emergent weed control,composting etc.



All will be done after getting aproval from the resident engineer


Lawn grass

Weeding,punning,gap filling,pest control etc.


Garden upgrading works

replanting hedges, climbers, flower beds and rock garden plants  etc.


Miscellaneous Maintenance

Mowing, fertilization, trimming, insect control, check and adjust

Table 1.2 Activities for follow up and garden maintenance

  • Tree Watering – 20 litres per tree every other week (weekly during drought periods) from April / May – September for the first two years.
  • Hedging – same as for the trees but 5 litres per linear metre.
  • Mulching – all planting beds / pits to have 50 – 75mm of bark mulch laid over the pit as noted (to be replenished every year). 
  • Staking – All New Trees shall be staked to one third the clear height of the stem (to promote incremental movement). Removed after two years (three years maximum).
  • Weeding – remove all weed growth from all planting beds / pits (weed growth is a major obstacle to successful establishment).
  • All areas of new planting will require irrigation throughout the growing season.
  • Water demand will be dependent on species, soil types and weather conditions, however newly planted standard trees up to 18‐20 cm in girth will require approximately 30 liters per day from April‐ This can be reduced in prolonged wet spells.
  • Watering will be carried out using a hose pipe fitted with a fine rose.
  • Irrigation will be carried out for the first two growing seasons to ensure good root establishment.
  • Irrigation will be carried out first thing in the morning or late in the afternoon to avoid excessive evaporation or leaf scorch.
