  • Lawn clippings – are they good for the council gardens?

    The Moreton Bay Regional Council does not encourage lawn clipping to be added to the community gardens.  They can actually fine you for dumping your lawn clippings in these gardens.   Lawn clippings often carry weed seeds with them which only makes the job of the garden maintenance crew more difficult and a constant source of […]

  • Dumping of green waste on community gardens – Did you know you can be fined by MBRC?

    Public gardens, Parks and Vacant lots are becoming dumping grounds with some residents tipping grass clippings in gardens and throwing palm leaves and garden rubbish on vacant lots and in public parks.       MBRC are very concerned at the increase within Pacific Harbour as this can build up and create a fire hazard and a breeding […]

  • Gardens around street trees – who maintains them?

    Street tree gardens are not maintained under the MBRC garden maintenance contract.        The street trees themselves are on a regular shaping and lifting program through the council, and require council permission to remove.   However if there is a garden around the base of the tree, it is up to the lot owner […]

  • Street Trees – who maintains them?

    Street Trees are maintained by Moreton Bay Regional Council.      They create a uniform streetscape in our area and will mostly be a Tuckeroo (Cupaniopsis anacardioides).     There is normally only one street tree per house lot. MBRC have a tree maintenance program to keep the trees trimmed and lifted above traffic height, however […]

  • Maintenance Standards within the PHRCA Estate

    Did you know that the PHRCA area has a different standard of infrastructure than other areas of Bribie Island?     Examples are that we have sections of exposed aggregate concrete, flagstones and pavers in our pathways, rather than just all plain concrete. When these areas need maintenance or replacing, MBRC will only replace at their […]

Unfortunately, there are some vacant blocks that are becoming unkempt and this reflects on the whole area and becomes a frustration […]

  • Does your Pandanus look sick? It could have Pandanus Dieback!

    It might be Pandanus Dieback. One of the north coast’s iconic plants, the coastal Pandanus tree Pandanustectorius, is under local threat from dieback caused by a flatid insect known as the Pandanus planthopper jamella australiae.  The planthoppers exude honeydew; this encourages mould growth and rotting of terminal growth points.
