Verge Garden In Shorncliffe 4017

We started the verge garden 12 months ago. We have over-sown the existing non-native grass with Dichondra Repens, a no-mow native grass with pretty kidney shaped leaves.

The native grasses and plants have been planted in ‘drifts’, located to suit shade and sun requirements. We have deliberately not used a border strip to avoid it being a potential trip hazard.

We initially put a small sign on the tree to explain that the verge no longer needed to be mown, but it seems old habits die hard in the suburbs!!
