Outdoor living competition theme
Enjoying the outdoors is what the garden show’s display garden competition is all about.
This year’s competition theme is Al Fresco Experience. Whether it’s a place to play, entertain, dine, hang out or enjoy a cup of coffee, the six display garden competitors have been asked to transform a 17-by-20 foot indoor area into a dynamic and inspiring outdoor living space.
“The focus is outdoor living, and we are challenging the display garden competitors to create an outdoor space that suits the needs of a variety of family interests,” says Calgary Horticultural Society events manager Cassandra Christie.
The display garden competitors are: Year Round Landscaping, Natural Landscapes, Garden Accents, Create Escape, Jemco Landscaping and Landform.
Competitors are vying for a Judge’s Choice prize of $2,500, and there is also a People’s Choice prize of $1,000. “We encourage all our visitors to the Garden Show to stop by and take in the incredible displays, and also to put their vote in,” Christie says.
The display gardens will be located around the Equiplex building perimeter at Spruce Meadows.
