Benefits of Planting Local Native Plants
Planting local native plants has many benefits including the provision of food sources and habitat for native wildlife. Local native plant species (that is plants that occur naturally on one of five soil types within the Swan Coastal Plain) require little to no soil amendments and minimal watering.
There are two main soil types in the City of Melville, being the Karrakatta and Bassendean Soils. To the very west of the City there is a strip of Cottesloe Soil and a small patch of Herdsman Soil in the south eastern section of Kardinya. You can determine the best plants for your soil type by going to the Apace website and selecting your suburb.
