Road Verge Landscaping

With the need for our gardens to become more sustainable and waterwise the Town of Cottesloe encourages residents to utilise waterwise plants and practices within their gardens. The replacement of lawn verges with garden beds planted with local species is being encouraged.

Works that are undertaken within the road reserve, between the property boundary and the edge of the road in front of a privately owned property, are required to have Council approval. To apply to undertake your work, please apply online here or send an email to describing your proposal and include a plan of the works. 

Road Verge Landscaping Application Assessment Fee $205

Applications must be submitted at least 10 working days prior to commencement of works. 

Any further queries please contact the Town on 9285 5000
