Landscape and irrigation design and built for Tala Island
....................................................................................................................................................


     Tala Island in Bahrain is uniquely shaped in an elongated curve it has a variety of villas
     each with individual beach access to a calm lagoon together with a wide range of
     apartments

     The island is set in over a million square feet of irrigated, lush landscaped grounds that
     have high level of communal area, common beach access and visitor amenities creating a
     residential island of distinction and balance.

     After being awarded the contract; preparation of landscape shop drawings, material
     submittals as well as irrigation design were my main tasks; during the construction
     phase, i became involved in all aspects of site supervision technical support
     as well as coordination.

     It is important to mention that the major problem for the island was that underground salt
     water that was relatively shallow for this; the use of halophytes plant as well as salt barriers
     were a must for the survival of the landscape.
