Our residents take great pride in their gardens and rightly so, we are known as The Garden City.
Every year we encourage you to spruce up your gardens for the City of Bayswater Garden Awards, which feature a host of prizes for keen gardeners who are blessed with green thumbs.
All gardens are in the running, including verge gardens, front gardens, vegetable gardens and native gardens.
To enter, all you have to do is send a picture of your garden or your neighbour's garden to firstname.lastname@example.org - entries open on 1 September and the competition closes on October 20.
Our judges will then pick a winner and runner-up from each ward. The first prize is $200 and the runner-up prize is $100.
There will be a presentation awards night on November 23 so I encourage you all to take part and make the most of the glorious spring weather which will soon be upon us.
If you have difficulty in submitting an entry, please contact the City on 9272 0694.
