Street gardens

If you've a grassed nature strip alternatively known as a verge in front of your house, then you have the chance to create a beautiful street or verge garden. A well-maintained street garden can help to reduce lawn mowing, provide habitat for birds and help to make your home and street look fantastic.

Because nature strips and verges are Council land, you must first read and agree to the street garden guidelines and submit an application for approval before you plant your street garden. As part of the application process, you'll also need to have reviewed the garden plant and natives for shade lists.
