Boulevard Garden Guidelines
The City of Nanaimo defines a boulevard “as the area between the street curb and the sidewalk, owned by the City, that’s typically planted with grass and trees. Residents may transform the boulevard adjacent to their home into a well-designed and well- maintained garden using this guide. Boulevard gardens can create more beautiful, interesting and diverse streets, add character to neighbourhoods and increase feelings of community pride. They also provide environmental benefits such as increasing ecological diversity and providing bird, butterfly and pollinator habitats.”
NOCA has an active boulevard beautification program. Contact us at firstname.lastname@example.org if you’d like to get involved and learn more from your neighbours who are beautifying their boulevards.
