New garden sensational!
The Geographe community has embraced the stunning new Bay OK garden installed at Freycinet Park.
The garden features old jetty timbers, local native species and Bay OK garden design elements, with a generous seating area and bike racks for visitors.
GeoCatch’s Bay OK Officer, Lisa Massey, said that while visual amenity was very important, the proximity of the garden to the Port Geographe canal entrance was also a consideration.
“The critical step in the garden installation was to firstly improve the soil with applications of clay and compost to keep moisture and nutrients in the soil and out of the Bay,” she said.
The garden is a partnership between the City of Busselton and GeoCatch, with support from the South West Catchments Council, through funding from the Australian Government’s National Landcare Program
