Fraser Coast Regional Council Nature Strip Policy

Permits are required before planting. Organic garden practices only (no snail bait or chemical sprays). Emphasis on protecting the street trees.

Ensure mulch doesn’t spill onto roads and nature strips nor is built up around trees.

Ground covers, native grasses, food plants and shrubs less than 0.5 m high preferred. Must not be prickly, spiky, poisonous or a declared pest species. No hard landscaping.
