Guerilla garden gang nipped in the bud by police.
THEY are mysterious gardening bandits fixing some of Sydney's worst eyesores.
Using fake IDs, refusing to comply with development application processes and wearing clever disguises - including posing as Leichhardt Council workers complete with T-shirts sporting the council's logo - the six-person gardening gang was shut down during its 18th "hit" yesterday.
The green thumbs, filming for new Channel 10 series Guerrilla Gardeners, premiering later this month, were told to down tools by Sutherland Shire Council.
It was the first time the team hasn't completed a project, with other councils around Sydney including Newtown, Ashfield and Canterbury, telling them to move on once they're finished.
"It's always a risk," said Amy, who refused to give her full name.
