In the city of Rijeka, around 1,500,000 m² of grassland and vegetation are mowed 4 to 10 times a year, leaves are raked in autumn, and shrubs are pruned in spring or autumn. Approximately 9,000 m² of space is covered by hedges of various heights (some over 3 m tall), which are pruned, dug and fertilized several times a year. All newly-planted spaces are watered during summer months.
Plants in 200 decorative plant troughs are regularly maintained by digging, weeding, fertilizing and watering, and when necessary, plant replacement.
1,380 m² of flower beds in the area of the city of Rijeka planted with seasonal flowers require intensive upkeep year-round. Throughout the year, these flower beds are regularly weeded, fertilized and watered.
