YNB Winner - Glenside Landscaping
The Environs Club is a group of residents in the new Glenside development. Formed by David Everett, the group aims to improve the immediate environment and attract wildlife to the area.
“There are some really large gum trees but very little understorey growth,” says David. “We applied for the YNB funding to purchase plants and shrubs.”
Council’s Technical Officer, Conservation and Land Management, Dr Mark Ellis, visited the site with David. “He was great,” says David. “Mark is so knowledgeable and he knew just the right plants and shrubs to suit the area.”
Mark put together a pack of 19 different species of wildflowers, grasses and shrubs from Council’s biodiversity nursery. David and his neighbours planted all 215 of them.
