Garden of the Week

The popular Garden of the Week Contest, organized by the Niagara-on-the-Lake Horticultural Society invites you to nominate your favourite residential gardens including friends, family, neighbours or even your own garden in the area. The contest runs from June 1 to August 31, 2019.

To submit a nomination, fill out the form below. The weekly deadline is Monday evening. Any submitted nominee not been selected as a winner will carry forward to the following week for consideration. You may nominate as many gardens as you wish. Nominations will be reviewed weekly by the Niagara-on-the-Lake Horticultural Society judges. Winning gardens will be featured each week on the Town’s website and social media channels.

Only front gardens will be judged, and the gardens must be in the municipality of Niagara-on-the-Lake and visible from the road. This includes residences in the five communities as well as the surrounding rural areas. The Niagara-on-the-Lake Horticultural Society will evaluate the nominations based on four criteria:

  • Streetscape and curb appeal
  • Personal expression and creativity
  • Colour and texture
  • Maintenance and neatness.

The prize awarded to the residential garden winner of the week includes a bottle of wine donated by Caroline Estate Winery and a gift certificate donated by Regal Florist and Garden Centre.

This program is affiliated with the National Communities in Bloom program that fosters civic pride, environmental responsibility, and beautification through community involvement.
