Nature Strips

A nature strip is an area of public land between the property boundary and the kerb, excluding any public pavement. In most cases, a nature strip is grassed, but a nature strip can also be modified by adding plants to create more attractive look.

Nature strips play an important role in keeping our streets looking attractive while helping our environment by soaking up rain, and helping keep the air moist and cool. They can also improve local environment through indigenous plantings, providing habitat for local native wildlife and insects.
