Healthy Urban Habitat
We’ve developed a Healthy Urban Habitat website to provide our customers with useful tips, tools and videos as well as a place for customers to share their own garden stories so we can all learn from each other, and you can also:
- locate events and gardening workshops near you
- stay tuned for upcoming competitions
- check out interactive gardening tools
- apply seasonal tips in your own garden

Greening the West
While we’re providing advice to help you green up your backyard, we’re also involved with a major initiative to benefit the communities of the western suburbs - Greening the West.
City West Water is facilitating Greening the West to deliver positive health and social outcomes by providing a greener urban landscape. We’re working with a range of partners from local councils, water corporations, government agencies and industry and community groups.
The aim of the program is to increase vegetation in the west, and increase access to quality green space by providing a greener urban landscape.
Visit Greening the West website for more information.
