Hobson Bay City Council Nature Strip Guidelines

Excavation and cultivation must be by hand.

Low growing plants, no weeds, fine gravel or organic mulch.

Prune plants so they do not protrude onto pathways, driveways or within 600mm of the back of the kerb

If a street tree is required on the nature strip please contact the Council and we will arrange for one to be planted. Any landscaping of nature strips must be avoided in early stages of a tree being planted.

You can help your tree flourish by watering it regularly and keeping the base weed free and mulched.
