Verge gardens

If you have a verge in front of your property, then you have the chance to create a beautiful public garden. A well-maintained verge garden can help to reduce lawn mowing, provide habitat for birds, cool the neighbourhood and make your home and street look fantastic. It can also strengthen community connections, building relationships between neighbours and thereby reducing loneliness.

Because verges are situated on public land owned by Council, you must first read the Verge Garden Guidelines and email the completed checklist

For garden proposals in any other public space location, including verges not situated in front of the owner’s property, see details here.
