Habitat gardens with indigenous species help to improve the health of Brimbank’s overall biodiversity, while helping to mitigate the impacts of climate change, and supporting our native birds, reptiles, frogs and beneficial insects. Native and habitat gardens help to close the gap for our local wildlife and have plenty of other benefits too.  Find our more which plants to chose and which to avoid when creating your eco-friendly garden.
