Glen Eira City Council Nature Strip Guidelines
‘Residents are permitted to plant ground covers and low-growing shrubs and grasses as an alternative to grass. Indigenous plants are preferred as they provide habitat for native butterflies, bees, birds and other wildlife and often require less water.
“A permit is required from Council before planting a nature strip. This is an obligation under Glen Eira City Council’s Local Law (No. 32). Residents are encouraged to read the Nature Strip Planting Guidelines for all nature strip planning and planting. Our Indigenous Plants of Glen Eira also has information on Indigenous plants.”
