In keeping with the City’s commitment to environmental sustainability, all gardens will be judged against waterwise criteria (including use of native plants, mulch and other water saving measures) and demonstrated controlled use of pesticides and chemical fertilisers.

Entrants in the Best Small Space Garden will also be judged against creative use of space and incorporation of landscaping features.

Be sure to include this information on your entry form!
