I was more than a little surprised to come across the landscaping on Kintore Street Dulwich Hill, outside Dulwich Hill Primary School.   The school itself is green & leafy with many tall trees.   This feeling has been continued into the streetscape by work done by Marrickville Council.   The landscaping & trees are probably traffic calming measures for the school & I think it looks wonderful.

I also think that an environment like this teaches children to appreciate nature & beauty.  This is something good that they would likely carry into adulthood.  I wish there was more of this around the LGA as it makes this street look great.

Simple, but effective landscaping in traffic islands just a little further up Kintore Street

Simple, but effective landscaping in traffic islands just a little further up Kintore Street.  Not only attractive, but also helps to lower the urban heat island effect.
