Indigenous gardens

Maroondah is home to a number of rare and locally or regionally significant species. These species are under tremendous pressure from weed infestation and vandalism. The Maroondah Bushland team, with support from volunteers, maintains these reserves by removing weed infestations and regenerating or revegetating depleted areas.

Building your own indigenous garden can:

  • strengthen existing corridors and increase the number of habitat pockets within Maroondah,
  • can create new corridors that link to remnant flora and fauna ecosystems in Maroondah’s bushland reserves,
  • protect fragile local natural areas by reducing potential weed infestations caused by weedy plants escaping from gardens
  • create new habitats for wildlife,
  • significantly reduce ongoing maintenance, fertiliser and water use,
  • create inviting outdoor living areas,
  • raise awareness and appreciation of local indigenous vegetation and wildlife
