Native Verge Display Garden

Check out the native verge display garden on Bradley Grove at Mitchell Park Sports and Community Centre.

Why create a native verge garden?

Native verge gardens green our neighbourhoods, cool our streets and provide habitat for wildlife. Small birds, skinks, butterflies and native bees use native plants for food and shelter. Native gardens can help them to move across our suburbs.

Plant selection

The verge garden on Bradley Grove has native plants that:

  • are hardy and well suited to the local environment
  • have varied flowering times for a constant show
  • have diverse colours, textures and sizes to create a visually appealing and dynamic garden.

Use these tips to design your own native garden!
