Southern Gazette (South Perth) - - Residential -

GREEN-THUMBED home own­ers have the chance to win more than $1300 worth of land­scap­ing prod­ucts as part of prop­erty agency Bourkes’ lat­est com­mu­nity event.

Sell­ing agents Adam Piller and James Thomp­son are run­ning the in­au­gu­ral Bourkes Best Yard com­pe­ti­tion, spon­sored by Earth & Wa­ter in Como and Gar­den Af­fair in South Perth.

“This is a fun and in­clu­sive event and we are look­ing for­ward to see­ing en­tries from any young, as­pir­ing green thumbs through to older en­thu­si­asts, in­di­vid­ual gar­den­ers or a fam­ily ef­fort,” Mr Piller said.

The com­pe­ti­tion aims to re­ward gar­den­ers with the most cre­ative and well-tended en­tries from a wide va­ri­ety of land­scapes, in­clud­ing tra­di­tional back yards, front gar­dens, court­yards, bal­conies as well as pool sur­rounds.

Awards will be given out for Best Large Gar­den, Best Small Gar­den and Best Court­yard or Bal­cony, with first-prize win­ners tak­ing home a fully in­stalled liv­ing gar­den wall from Earth & Wa­ter val­ued at $300 and a $100 store voucher from Gar­den Af­fair.

Judges Nigel Thomp­son, from Earth & Wa­ter, Bruce Jour­dain, from Gar­den Af­fair, and Perth hor­ti­cul­tur­al­ist and turf ex­pert Nick Bell will award prizes to the win­ners and also hand out $50 gift vouch­ers from Gar­den Af­fair to the run­ners-up.

The Bourkes Best Yard com­pe­ti­tion closes on Oc­to­ber 31, with win­ners an­nounced on Novem­ber 10.
