Wollondilly Garden Competition Winners Announced

Posted on: 19.10.2018

The winners of Wollondilly Shire Council’s annual Garden Competition were announced last night during a presentation at the Bargo Sports Club.

The 2018 Garden Competition had 42 entrants, including seven schools, from 14 different towns and included several first time entries.

Mayor, Cr Judith Hannan said, “With so many beautiful gardens in the Shire, this competition is one that is close to the hearts of many.”

“Given that we have had so little rain across the Shire this year, it is particularly impressive that our entrants have been able to sustain such lovely gardens,” she said.

The drought has had an impact on the area, but judges reported that this year’s standard of garden was still high and included dynamic, interesting and colourful garden displays of varying sizes.

The judges included previous Grand Champion Winners and Council Parks & Gardens staff. It took five days to visit and tour every garden in the competition, including both homes and schools.
