Naturestrips are the piece of public land often between the paved footpath and the kerb. Naturestrips usually consist of lawn and it is the responsibility of residents in the adjacent property to maintain the lawn by regular mowing, weeding and picking up of litter.
Some residents in the City of Whitehorse may wish to plant small plants on the naturestrip that add interest or complement the garden of the adjacent property. Before doing this, residents must obtain a permit issued by Council. Naturestrip Planting Permit Application Form (34.50kB)
