BAYSWATER council is trialling a vertical garden on the corner of Whatley Crescent and King William Street.

If all goes to plan the garden could be extend along Whatley Crescent, transforming an existing fence into a lush street feature.

The vertical garden is a partnership between the city, which funded the trial, Baysie Rollers and Bayswater Men’s Shed.

Bayswater mayor Dan Bull said the community wanted to see more greenery in the town centre.

“Plants, landscaping and vertical gardens were all priorities put forward at the city’s place activation workshops,” he says.

“This vertical garden is a creative way to bring nature into an urban area where space is limited.”
