What a difference this will make to the streetscape when filled with plants.

It was great to see street works outside Marrickville West Public School in Beauchamp Street Marrickville. Four long blister islands with garden spaces have been built either side of the concreted blister islands at the pedestrian crossing.

This is the type of work that is the norm in the northern suburbs of Marrickville municipality, so it is really nice to see it happening in south Marrickville. Hopefully Marrickville Council chooses nice plants that actually enhance the streetscape. Well done Marrickville Council.  Every opportunity to increase greenery in the streets improves the whole visual outlook & everyone benefits.

This shows the before & after.  The before is this concreted & unattractive blister island, which has been the norm in the southern suburbs.  The addition of the green blister islands will make a significant difference to the streetscape.

This shows the ‘before & after’ culture. The ‘before’ is an unattractive  concrete blister island, which has been the norm in the southern suburbs of the LGA. The addition of the green blister islands should make a significant difference to the streetscape.

A significant size.  Imagine this filled with plants.
