Run over many years, the Napier City Council's annual garden competition is aimed at encouraging citywide pride in garden beautification. Consistently popular, the competition is open to residents, ratepayers, schools and businesses located within the Council's territorial boundaries.
Judging for the annual event usually gets underway in October and culminates in a prize-giving evening held in late November.
The competition covers a wide variety of categories to embrace the diversity of gardens throughout the city. Essentially, there are three main categories - specialist, residential and children's gardens. Each of these categories provides for other subsections.
A local service club organises and runs each year's competition on the Council's behalf - an arrangement that has worked well for many years.
If your property is worth showcasing, you might consider entering the competition to share your pleasure in your garden with others?
