Backyard Habitat

The Creating Backyard Habitat book was officially launched at Sustainability Lane on Sunday 8 October. The book provides practical advice on creating wildlife-friendly gardens in Lane Cove using local native plants.

This volume provides guidance on planning, designing and caring for native gardens, and how to incorporate important habitat spaces for our native birds and other animals. Handy lists of native plants suitable for the Lane Cove area, plus examples of local habitat gardens will provide inspiration for all gardeners.

The book was written to provide advice particularly for residents living adjacent to bushland however the information is useful for anyone who has a garden space.
