Morinville’s Best Garden contest is on for its 11th year and the Town of Morinville is looking for nominees by July 20. The contest will take place July 25.

There are six categories this year: Unique Container, Entire Yard-Front to Back, Outdoor Living Area, Perennial Garden, Kids Garden, and Best Lawn.
“Recognizing Morinville’s Best Gardens is important. Residents and businesses put a lot of time and effort into enhancing their gardens and properties,” said Chantal Godberson, Events and Culture Programmer in a release Thursday. “This amazing work builds pride and adds beauty to our community and should be acknowledged.”
