The MD is again participating in the Communities in Bloom – Best Garden Selection Program

This is a fun, casual way to recognise the care and attention MD residents put into having beautiful yards and gardens in harmony with our surroundings and wildlife.  The program provides signs to post in the winning yards for the season. All MD residents are eligible to participate.

The Criteria

This program is run informally and loosely judged by these evaluation criteria:

• Environmental Action
• Floral Displays
• Heritage Conservation
• Landscape
• Native Plant Use
• Tidiness
• Urban Forestry
• Water Conservation
