Thank you to all entries and participants for helping make this year so great !

The judges had a difficult time selecting the winners for the 7th Annual Garden Competition this year as the entries were very close.

The criteria used by the judges included:

  • Overall Layout
  • Plant Health, Variety and Colour
  • Lawn Care
  • Maintenance
  • Special Features (eg. containers, deck, water features, gazebo).


All competitors were invited to show off their garden and participate in a tour of the entries at a following weekend.

At the end of the tour, a very enjoyable luncheon was provided by Diane and Mike Baltgailis.

Thanks to the judges for giving of their time and expertise in the competition !
