What are we looking for?
Regardless of the size or location of your garden, if you are a passionate gardener, we want to hear from you! We’re looking for someone who demonstrates creativity and inventiveness, and who is committed to making a gorgeous garden for themselves or the use of others.
The judges will consider the following:
DESIGN ELEMENTS This includes the look and functionality of the garden, how the layout relates to the needs of those using it, and how well the garden sits within its broader setting.
PLANT CHOICES The judges will assess how well you have selected your plants for your local environment, how they work together and how successfully they are growing in your garden.
SUSTAINABLE FEATURES Tell us how you manage your resources. Do you collect rainwater, make compost or recycle or upcycle materials?
