Landscaper David Giddens lays grass at the Canterbury Television site as it is prepared for the anniversary of the February 22 earthquake.

In December it was decided the Madras St site, where 115 people were killed, should be tidied up amid concerns that families visiting it for the anniversary might find its unkempt state disrespectful.

The Canterbury Earthquake Recovery Authority landscape plan includes grassing some of the site, the replacement of high fencing with a low post and chain fence, planter boxes on the perimeter and a sign that recognises the site's significance.
