We are on the verge of streetscape revival with the City of PAE Best Verges Award.
Gardening within the verges and nature strips has become increasingly popular across Australia. The City of PAE greatly values its green infrastructure and the work residents do to brighten up their verges, so we are thrilled to announce the launch of our second Annual Best Verges Award for innovative and sustainable gardening.
The Best Verges Award seeks to encourage residents to contribute to the aesthetics of their street and take an active role in their community. Outstanding verge developments from each Council ward will be chosen from the Lawn Verges and Planted Verges categories.
We have $3500 worth of prizes up for grabs in this years competition. Nominations will be evaluated by a panel according to aesthetics, creativity and innovation, waterwise strategies, streetscape value and community involvement criteria.
To submit your entry, email photos along with your contact details to firstname.lastname@example.org or mail to Katherine, City of PAE, PO Box 110, Port Adelaide, SA 5015.
To be eligible, residents need to ensure that their verge complies with our Verge Development Guidelines. To complete the application form online click here, otherwise you can download the PDF application form and either email or return via mail.
Entries close 27 October 2017 with prizes awarded in November.
Here are last years winners from our innagural competition.
