Every nominated residential front garden will be acknowledged with a recognition sign for their garden as part of the Richmond Hill Blooms program two-step judging process. Following this recognition, a short list of best gardens will be identified by Richmond Hill staff horticulturalists. The Richmond Hill Garden and Horticultural Society will then select the top three gardens per ward based on the Ontario Horticultural Association's Garden and Special Planting Criteria.
The top three front gardens in each ward will receive a plaque and recognition on the City’s website. Winners will be announced this fall.
