New verge garden outside the Salvos Store in Tempe

New verge garden outside the Salvos Store in Tempe

I saw great work by Marrickville Council today.  They have done extensive work planting the large verge outside the Salvos Store in Bellevue Street Tempe & it looks wonderful.

This large verge has historically been a place where people dump anything & everything.  It often looked very ugly & was something that caused many problems for the store itself.

I was particularly impressed with the use of coir logs to stop erosion as these not only look nice, but will also send a clear message that this area is cared for.  Hopefully, the community will see that the verge is now a garden & will respect it by not leaving their donations or rubbish in this location.

Here is a fuller view.  The other side of the entrace gate has also been planted with native plants.
