Nature Strips and Verge Gardens

Nature strips and verge gardens are in the space between the front property line and the kerb. This area is normally mown by the residents but a growing number are choosing to plant gardens instead. We encourage native gardens for habitat that comply with local council policies. Register here to add your nature strip (it's free) to provide examples and inspiration to others.
