City of Cockburn Guidelines relating to landscaping on verges:

  • No plant is to be more than 600 mm when mature, or of hazardous nature (e.g. thorny or poisonous);
  • Hardstand material (e.g. pavers only) is limited to 25% of the verge area, excluding the crossover. If hardstand is used it’s to be integrated into the soft landscaping, so as not to provide an area for vehicle parking;
  • Artificial turf or synthetic grass is not recommended as a verge treatment, separate approval is required if this is used;
  • Loose pea gravel, crushed brick or other stone aggregates are not permitted as verge treatments;
  • Verge treatment is not to impede pedestrian access;
  • General level and grade of the verge is not to be altered;
  • Existing street trees are to be protected and not to be pruned or interfered with in any way without approval from the City and;
  • Verge treatments are to be set back 1.5m from the road frontage, and if no footpath is present, a 1.5m pedestrian area must be available at the property boundary.
