2021 Award Categories

Awards will be presented in the following categories: 

  • Best Waterwise Native Garden

Judging Process

Information and photos provided with your entry form will be used to undertake preliminary judging of each category. Only gardens selected for final judging will be viewed in person.

Finalists will be notified prior to COB Thursday 14 October, with final judging to be carried out by the Parks Team on Friday 15 October 7am-3pm. Please ensure your garden can be accessed or viewed during these times.

What are we looking for this year?

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!
