Do you want some help to improve your front garden?

Green Thumb Grants are $200 Bunnings gift cards we offer to tenants for garden projects. There are two categories:

Front yard

Ideas can include planting a tree, building a raised veggie bed, growing grass and flowers or soil improvement.

Plus! Work with your neighbours on a team project and each household will receive $200. You could create a verge or communal garden, plant a shady tree with a new bench seat or any other project that has value and benefit to you and your neighbours or street. Your neighbour doesn’t have to be a Westside customer.

Shade your house

Plant something or create a structure that will help shade the hottest part of your home in summer.

Westside will need to consider each application, especially if they require a council application, you are in a unit complex or have shared garden space.

Do you need help with your idea?

Contact our Sustainable Communities Project Officer to discuss your ideas.

Phone 8155 6082

The Westside maintenance team are able to provide advice if you need to complete an Alteration Request Form or submit a Council application for your project.

How to apply

Applying is simple. Write a few sentences about what you want to do, and add a photo or a sketch and send to:

In person or post
Westside Housing
478 Port Road
West Hindmarsh SA 5007

Preference will be given to those who have not received a Green Thumb Grant before.
