Road verge (nature strip) landscaping and maintenance

Find out what you can and can't do on a road verge (nature strip) and who is responsible for maintaining this land

The road verge, also known as the nature strip, is the area of land between your property boundary and the road. Within our region, the road verge generally consists of grass, footpath and a council provided street tree.
