The Town of Cambridge Garden Awards are held annually to recognise well designed, maintained and aesthetically pleasing gardens.
The Town encourages sustainable and water wise gardens which are clean, neat and contribute to the greening of Town streetscapes.
There are four award categories:
- Best Residential Front Garden
- Best Kept Street (or Part Street)
- Best Commercial/Group Housing Front Garden
- Best Waterwise Front Garden
Judging commences in October each year and all finalists are invited to attend the Annual General Meeting of Electors in December where the winners of each category are announced and presented with their award.
2020 Garden Awards
The focus for the 2020 Garden Awards will be verges.
Residents are encourage to transform verges into waterwise landscapes and take advantage of the Town's Native Plant Subsidy Scheme throughout the month of May.
If a verge has already been transformed into a floral display then residents are encouraged to ensure it is pruned, mulched and looking good in preparation for judging in spring. Nominations are scheduled to open in May so start planning your verge gardening project today.
