Easy Gardens

The Easy Gardens program provides a once-off garden modification service to help eligible residents maintain their homes and provide safer, more sustainable outdoor living surrounds. The assistance is offered to eligible residents who are unable to perform essential garden maintenance tasks and who are at risk of premature admission into supported accommodation or a residential aged care facility.

The Easy Gardens program encompasses a garden modification that may include:

  • A further assessment of client needs following initial assessment and/or referral
  • A garden design plan outlining external modifications and work required
  • Replacement and or relocation of drought tolerant plants, adding weed matting with mulching, bark chips or pebbles
  • Installing or replacing clothes lines with safe pathways, laying of paving and garden edging
  • Foliage trimming, lopping and removals • Installing easy reach raised garden beds.

Approved contractors, volunteer groups or other organisations are assigned to undertake the work.  A client contribution is negotiated and all works agreed with prior to work commencing. Current funding allows for approximately 40 clients to be assisted and a waiting list applies. 

For more information please contact the Program Coordinator, Cosi, on 8408 1549.
