City of Albany
Sorry, I have Plants This weekend
With a bit more time on your hands are you interested in greening your home garden or even your verge?
Did you know by greening your garden or verge can improve local water quality, improve community health and well-being, and increase local amenity. Plus it can make it look pretty gorgeous too when you do that mail or bin run in Iso!
We think it’s pretty important and the City has worked hard to lead the way in saving water and greening our spaces and is an endorsed Waterwise Council and Waterwise Aquatic Centre!
