No one can deny the detrimental effects of lawn clippings from 12 Acres of parklands possibly flowing into the lake.
But there is a Zero cost temporary solution!
Simply by letting the grass grow as close as practical to the lake, in parklands flowing to streets and around drains can have a filtering effect. This is a temporary solution until proper planted vegetation buffers can be investigated and installed.
The Care Group would like to suggest a trial to Council but only if it has community support! It is envisaged the strip required would be approximately 1-2 m wide. The top of the grass buffer zone could be trimmed to improve the appearance.
