Spring Garden Competition

Since 2003, Coffs Harbour City Council has been the major sponsor of the Waterwise Garden categories in the Coffs Harbour Garden Club Spring Garden Competition.

Entries to the competition open yearly in early September and further information on how to enter can be found on the Coffs Harbour Garden Club website.

There are Waterwise Garden categories for residential and non-residential properties and the winners of the Waterwise Garden categories take home some of the best prizes on offer.  

The judging criteria for the Waterwise Garden categories are based on the information in the Coffs Harbour City Council Waterwise Garden Guide. Coffs Harbour Water has developed a Guide to the Waterwise Garden criteria the judges will be looking for in your garden.
