Find out what you can and can't do with a nature strip.
What is a nature strip?
A nature strip is the narrow strip of land between your property boundary and the road kerb. This land is public land and can contain utilities including gas, water, sewerage, power (above and below ground), and telecommunications.
Normally nature strips will be covered in lawn, but there are several other things you can do to your nature strip in order to beautify your street.
When carefully planned and maintained, nature strips planted with indigenous or native plants can provide opportunities to improve the local environment, enhance amenity and support local biodiversity.
DID YOU KNOW? Parking of any vehicles or trailers on the nature strip is prohibited.
