Surry Hills residents going green
Residential property owners and tenants in the inner-city Sydney suburb of Surry Hills are experiencing a "green revolution", according to the local authority.
Sydney City Council revealed earlier this week (April 10) that since Prospect Lane underwent a green makeover and became a community garden thanks to a funding grant.
And now, it appears that the sustainable initiative has made a lasting impression when it comes to inner-city real estate.
From greener household gardens to the increased numbers of planter boxes on apartment balconies, it appears that Sydneysiders are taking inspiration from their new green space.
City of Sydney lord mayor Clover Moore asserted that she is keen to see the initiative act "as a catalyst for change".
She said: "The city's support has allowed us to successfully turn an undesirable space into a nice little patch of green between two of our lovely Surry Hills streets - and now we'd like to continue greening the entire area"
It's easy to go green in any type of residential property if you are willing to put in a bit of elbow grease.
Raised garden beds in the backyard can be a great option if your household wants to try out a vegetable patch - or if you're based in a smaller space, a balcony herb garden will allow you to enjoy the fruits of your labour.
