  • Loose pea gravel, crushed brick or other stone aggregates are generally not permitted as verge treatments;
  • The verge treatment is not to impede pedestrian access;
  • The general level and grade of the verge is not to be altered;
  • All irrigation pipework and associated fittings are to be laid at a depth of not more than 300mm, nor less than 150mm, below ground level;

Mulch depth*


Select larger pots eg 175mm-200mm for smaller verges, and smaller pots e.g., 140mm and tube stock for larger verges e.g., corner blocks.

Plant spacing is the distance plants should be planted apart and relates to the mature width or spread of each plant species which is usually stated on the plant tag. Plant with some overlap to eliminate gaps where weeds can grow through e.g. The plant below grows to 1.5m width, space these plants 1-1.2m apart, or for higher density planting at 0.7m spacing.
