Finding the Right Plants for You

27 March 2020

Creating a waterwise verge garden can help to save you water, money, increase wildlife habitats and provide a thermal buffer for seasonal changes.

In addition to the front landscaping package provided by Richard Noble & Company, adding more plants to your verge is a simple way to reap these benefits.

Placement of trees and plant species have the potential to damage underground services, so its important to select plant species carefully. The following guidelines can help you choose the right plants for your garden.

  • As a general rule, the Water Corporation recommends plants and flowers that are under 70cm high to avoid blocking the line of sight of pedestrians, cyclists and drivers.  A guide has been put together by the Water Corporation to assist in the planting of trees and shrubs based on your property and region. Visit their Website for more details.
  • Also consider using the Water Corporation directory to search for waterwise plants for your verge that will thrive best in your area.
