Common challenges with
Landscape Maintenance in Thailand
Incorrect plants/ turf types often specified for use resulting in high maintenance
Poor irrigation system design / irrigation water quality / restricted access to
quality irrigation water
Insufficient / incorrect drainage installed
Construction/Design does not match the available maintenance budget
Inconsistent depths / types of soils results in wet / dry and other problematic
Management of Subcontractors
Common challenges with
Landscape Maintenance in Phuket
– Communication between Expats and local staff
– Need to be able to adapt due to unavailability of products /
plants available in larger markets.
– Lack of continuation between the construction (and
contractor) and maintenance / management phase.
– Long term viability / financial considerations rarely taken
into account
Environmental Conditions
• Need to control site run off / leaching
• Salinity often an issue due to proximity to beach.
• 7 month dry season
• 5 month wet season
• Plants / grasses required that are adapted to seaside environments
• Tropical range of plants
• Differing soils from decomposed granites through to sands.
• Diverse range of insects, diseases and other pests.
The Alternatives

Experience in the region
Local Thai Staff
Thailand Based
International Management
• Not landscape experts
• Prone to shortcuts, lack of knowledge of modern landscape principles /
products / developments due to lack of expertise in the field.
• Products specified are what are locally/personally available and not
generally what’s best for the project
• Lack of experience with different environmental conditions and the
management tasks required.
• Priority lies in other areas, not specifically landscaping.
• Generally have limited budget reserved for landscaping inputs
