Four residents in the Shire of Serpentine Jarrahdale have been recognised for their winning gardens in the inaugural SJ Garden Competition.

There are four categories in the competition including Native Garden, Waterwise Garden, Traditional Garden and Rural Garden - which represented the different type of properties located in the Shire.

Due to COVID_19 restrictions the Shire moved the award ceremony online, publishing a video on their Shire's digital channel overnight.

Award winners are:

  • Native Garden - Garry Dore of Jarrahdale

  • Waterwise Garden - Yvette Dowell of Whitby

  • Traditional Garden - Fiona McCallum from Serpentine 

  • Rural Garden - Ian Wheeler and Megan Bosch of Darling Downs

The winners of each category received a $200 garden voucher.

Shire President Cr Michelle Rich said the SJ Garden Competition was held to recognise the beautiful gardens within the Shire and encourage residents to improve their own spaces while reaping the health benefits of being active and outdoors. 

"The four gardens are all very different, showcasing colourful flowers, hardy natives, tropical fruits and beautiful spaces to relax," she said. 

"They all show what you can achieve with a love for gardening and great imagination.

"The quality of entrants was fantastic, which made it a difficult job for the judges."
