Although nature strips are the responsibility of Council, residents of abutting properties are expected to maintain the nature strip by regular, mowing, maintenance and clearing of litter and rubbish.

The policy aims to ensure appropriate treatments are used on nature strips while still allowing safe access for pedestrians, postal deliveries, vehicles using the road, kerbside parking and rubbish collection.

Some options for treatments on nature strips include grass, gravels and mulches and approved plantings.

Residents may apply for a permit if their nature strip landscaping or proposed landscaping does not comply with the Beautification of Nature Strips Policy. 

For more information on the Beautification of Nature Strips Policy contact Council on 9742 0777.
