Good things are happening along the verge on Meeks Road Marrickville. This area is a part of a group of bushpockets; this one & three others along Victoria Road. Unfortunately the verge was accidently cleared by Council in June 2012. Council worked quickly to remedy the situation & also arranged community planting events to revegetate this strip.
From memory eight Lilly Pillies & two Firewheel trees have been planted, plus a number of Acacia. There are also native grasses & ground cover. The wooden bollards look really good & clearly mark this area as something special. The traffic island at the top of the street also looks good.
I look forward to watching the trees & plants grow. It would be great if there were more of these bushpockets created around Marrickville LGA as they not only look great & improve the streetscape, but they also create areas of biodiversity to support wildlife.
It was good to see that Marrickville Council has planted 4 replacement trees along the verge bushpocket that they accidently destroyed last June 2012. It won’t be too long before the community makes this into the lovely streetscape & wildlife habitat that it once was.
