Richmond Hill Blooms is a program that encourages residents to play a role in making Richmond Hill a more beautiful place to live, work and play by creating attractive, colourful and well-maintained front gardens and recognizing them. Every nominated residential front garden is acknowledged with a recognition sign for their garden as part of the Richmond Hill Blooms program two-step nomination. Following this recognition, a short list of best gardens are identified by Richmond Hill staff horticulturalists. The Richmond Hill Garden and Horticultural Society then select the top three gardens per ward based on the Ontario Horticultural Association’s Garden and Special Planting Criteria.
On September 19th at the Richmond Hill Centre for the Performing Arts the top three residential gardens in each ward were announced and awarded a plaque. I congratulate all residents whose gardens were nominated and thank you for taking pride and the time to help beautify our already beautiful Ward 4.
