Arco created, implemented and currently maintains a robust Plant Maintenance Program. This program was based on a 4 year period. During last summer, Taupo experienced extremely dry weather, our establish Plant Maintenance Program ensured the impact of the dry conditions had minimal effect on the establishing plants.

Due to the wetland environment, the weed control maintenance part for the program was review after 6 months and adjusted slightly. This was to ensure the establishing plants were not out grown by unwanted plants.
