A survey was undertaken of the ant fauna of a planted bush garden (350 ml) at the City Beach Primary School, Perth, Western Australia. Although the bush garden had been planted with flora native to the area, we found that its ant fauna most closely resembled that of surrounding modified habitats (lawn, and lawn under trees) rather than that of local woodland. Two cosmopolitan tramp ants, present in large numbers in the bush garden, may have been advantaged over many native ant species by local factors such as the relatively small size of the bush garden, and the use of wood shavings to line paths in the garden.
