‘The Shed’ Demonstration Verge
In 2020 a group of Burnside residents proposed a project and were successful in gaining funding from the 'Your Neighbourhood' program for the establishment of a demonstration verge garden. The idea was to show a practical example to local residents of a verge planted with attractive, mainly native species that conform to Council’s Verge Planting Guidelines(PDF, 153KB). The Demonstration Verge at The Shed, 6 Conyngham Street, Glenside was planted up in August 2021 and will be maintained by council as a resource for residents.
If you want to plant your own verge you need to submit a Verge/Road Reserve Landscaping or Planting Application to get permission from Council.
