“Council’s current position is that fruit and vegetable gardens are not supported. We encourage planting of native vegetation endemic to the Adelaide region. Plantings must remain below 500mm in height and allow 300mm of space next to the kerb to allow passengers to safely alight from vehicles.”
Council plants and maintains street trees.
