Good news for those of us who like verge gardens.  As at 30th March 2012 Marrickville Council has constructed a total of 181 verge gardens at the following locations –

  • Ivanhoe Street Marrickville – 40 gardens
  • Mansion Street Marrickville – 8 gardens
  • Robert Street Marrickville – 31 gardens
  • Piggott Street Marrickville – 25 gardens
  • Livingstone Road Marrickville – 11 gardens
  • Sydenham Road Marrickville – 28 gardens
  • Crown Street St Peters – 38 gardens.

Council is also planning to create 36 new verge gardens & plant 23 new street trees in Old Canterbury Road Lewisham.  See –

I thank Marrickville Council for this excellent work in improving our streetscapes.  Verge gardens are so much nicer than concrete & have many benefits, not least that they bring beauty to our streets.

The new verge gardens in Mansion Street Marrickville South have very much improved the streetscape.
