Wagga Wagga Nature Strip guidelines

There’s a great story here about Wagga’s strategy for street trees to cool the city.  Their award-winning strategy even includes the statement:

“Promotion of water-wise landscaping for nature strips should also occur, especially where large canopy cannot be provided due to easement requirements for utilities and overhead powerlines.

You can see the council’s verge garden / nature strip policy here and follow their link to the pdf document.

It’s a reasonable policy if you ignore the early paragraphs suggesting the use of glyphosate and fake grass.

Plant the Shady Lanes way of low-impact, working with nature instead.
