gardening on town verges …

My group has been pushing this ‘greening’ agenda in Pilbara and Kimberley towns for more than a decade, replacing grass weeds and bare dirt with indigenous plant species to protect erosion and provide a home to smaller animals, birds and insects.

This agenda is now being followed by town and shire councils, communities, developers and residents all over the region. Images below are just a few of the outstanding improvement that is the result of this. Click to enlarge some images from Broome garden verges …Acacia argyrea Acacia hippuroides
