Green Your Laneway Project

Time Out (Melbourne) - - Future Melbourne -

What is it: A $1.8 mil­lion green re­design of four Mel­bourne laneways. When will it open? The next Green Laneway (Guild­ford Lane) is ex­pected to open in 2018.

Last year, the City of Mel­bourne an­nounced the Green Your Laneway project. Hun­dreds of pub­lic nom­i­na­tions and trucks of soil later, the first of these ver­dant laneways – Coro­man­del Place – was un­veiled in July. The up­grade in­volved street mu­rals, pot plants, un­der­ground ir­ri­ga­tion and planter boxes, so that over time, vines will creep along the walls of the laneway. The next laneway is Guild­ford Place, which will fea­ture a com­mu­nal gar­den and a mu­ral of an over­grown fac­tory by Mel­bourne artist Mike Maka­tron.
