Climate change will have a range of impacts in North East Victoria, including on our gardens and on the way we garden.

Our gardens will have to cope with drier, hotter weather, drier soils, more storms and the potential for more fires.

We will be faced with less water availability and potentially, higher costs for inputs such as water and fertiliser.

We can adapt to these conditions by planting different plants that are resilient to harsh conditions. We can also be innovative in how we design gardens to make more efficient use of water and to maximise the amount of nutrients in the soil.

The Bridge Street West streetscape has been modified with the impacts of climate change in mind. Plantings have been carefully selected to be resilient to stress, induced by low water.

To find out more about plant species that are tolerant of dry conditions, storms or that are fire retardant, click here.
