Nature Strip Maintenance

Nature strips are the Council-owned land located between the constructed road and private property.

It is the responsibility of the property owner/resident to maintain the nature strips directly outside their house. This includes front, side and rear grassed nature strips.

Where there is an instance of an overgrown nature strip, Council will contact the property owners and direct them to tend to the nature strip as soon as possible and maintain it on a regular basis.

Contact details for a number of organisations that provide options for senior residents to assist with basic garden and lawn mowing assistance are provided below. Assistance is subject to eligibility criteria and further information can be found on Georges River Council’s Services for Seniors webpage.

Please note that a small number of residents are registered under a historical Council-run Lawn Mowing Assistance Scheme for elderly ratepayers. This Scheme is no longer open to new applications and has not been for a significant period of time.
