Having nature for a neighbour can be wonderful – but can sometimes be a challenge too.
That’s where Nature For Neighbourhoods comes in.
The Auckland Council programme offers free expert advice to residents.
It is for property owners who might be unsure how to best tackle the wilder parts of their gardens and bordering land and includes a free on-site consultation, advice on what species to plant and how to eradicate and control weeds.
A garden waste collection completes the service.
The programme is delivered by Kaipatiki Project. Call 482 1172 or email restoration@kaipa tiki.org.nz with details.
