Interactive Approved Plants List

This list is extracted from Easton Park’s Approved Plants List found at Nabr and a mirror is also hosted on this website.

Although this list is advertised as “the approved plants list”, the first page of the document states:

The attached list should be used as a starting point for selecting plants in the Easton Park. Requirements for specific Lots may be more or less restrictive depending on landscape indigenous to the immediate site and the location of the site within the Development.”
