The wet weather needn’t dampen your spirits – now is one of the best times of the year to plant your Waterwise verge garden.

As a Gold Waterwise Council, the City of Gosnells is actively encouraging residents to save water and establish a healthy Waterwise verge garden, while complying with the City’s verge rules.

A Waterwise local native verge garden not only looks great, it has a range of other benefits to the community and our environment – including providing habitat to wildlife, reduction in water use compared to lawn and filtration of the air.

The City permits a low-growing local native garden (maintained to 600mm) on verges.

“Now’s the time for you to plant your Waterwise verge garden, while the rain’s around and the weather is mild,” Mayor Terresa Lynes said.

“A Waterwise verge garden has many benefits for the community and the environment. Together, we can create a greener, water-efficient future for our community.”
