BRAMPTON – Think you have the most beautiful front garden in Brampton? We want to see it for the Gardens of Brampton Recognition Program! Brampton is a Green City, and as part of the Brampton Grow Green Environmental Master Plan, the City of Brampton is committed to keeping our community healthy, resilient, environmentally sustainable – and beautiful! Brampton is home to many front gardens, and the City knows residents take pride in them.

“Show us your front gardens, Brampton! Brampton is known as the Flower City, and our residents’ beautiful gardens help us live up to the name,” says Patrick Brown, Mayor, City of Brampton. “Residents are encouraged to take part in the Gardens of Brampton contest. Those selected will be recognized for their hard work!”

Residents are encouraged to submit pictures of their front gardens until August 8, 2022, following the required submission criteria:

• One photo per household
• Landscape (horizontal) view that encompasses the entire front garden
• No pets, people or easily identifiable house numbers must be shown
• Aim to take the photo daytime for best lighting
• Acceptable file formats are JPG or PNG (in high-resolution quality)
• Photo must be submitted via registration form (photos sent via social media or email will not be accepted)

The City, along with the Brampton Horticultural Society and the Chinguacousy Garden Club, will be selecting the best front gardens to be recognized. Gardens will be judged by the following criteria:

• Visual Appeal: the overall visual impact; colour and texture; a pleasing sense of harmony and balance. Residents should also remember to remove any winter lights and take photos from the curb!
• Overall Appearance: a good use of space, design coordination between plants and other elements.
• General Maintenance: the quality of care in pruning; weed and disease control; taking into consideration of environment methods (mulching, drought tolerant planting).
• Individuality: the creative use of special features such as ponds, garden sculpture, rockeries or a themed garden.

Those recognized will be featured online and will receive a recognition card. Photos can be submitted online at Brampton.ca.
