Green Your Laneway

Do you live or work off a laneway? Are you interested in laneway greening? Anyone can improve their laneway for the benefit of everyone. Many people in the central city don’t have traditional gardens but that doesn’t mean you can’t have any plants. There are many opportunities to green your home or business; you just need to know where to start. Green Your Laneway is a guide to inform laneway communities on greening using planter boxes, wall creepers and green roofs and walls within their properties.

The article includes links and further information:

  • What can I green?
  • What can I plant in my laneway garden?
  • Have you considered maintenance?
  • Do I need permission for greening?
  • Have you considered access and safety?
  • Are you seeking funding?  (!!!)
