Civic Beautification - 2 awards per ward

Two awards will be given per ward for properties that have given outstanding contributions, special thought and effort towards a front yard landscape that is environmentally sensitive and contributes to the beautification of our Garden City.

  • Use of native trees and shrubs
  • Pollinator plants
  • Use of mulch or rain barrel
  • Implementing edible gardens into the landscape while still contributing to neighbourhood curb appeal
  • Special features, highlights, or extraordinary efforts
