Pride of PoCo Garden Awards
The citizens of Port Coquitlam can take pride in the fact that Port Coquitlam is a beautiful City. Much of the credit goes to the City's residents, who take great pride in creating beautiful gardens around their properties.

The PoCo Garden Club and the City of Port Coquitlam encourage greater and more imaginative use of flowers and other plants to make our community even more beautiful. The Pride of Poco Garden Awards recognize the efforts and promote awareness of those who beautify our community through the use of plants, flowers, fruits, vegtables and other landscape elements. 

Categories
Citizens are encouraged to nominate gardens that offer striking floral displays and landscaping designs in the following categories:

Nomination Forms
Printed nomination forms will be available from these facilities in the Spring of 2015:

How to Make a Nomination
The Awards will be every two years, starting from 2013.

Judging

A panel of judges comprised of representatives of the City of Port Coquitlam and the PoCo Garden Club views all of the nominated gardens. Effective use of colour, space, and maintenance of plant and landscape materials will also be considered. Naturescape gardens and hardscape elements (stone walls, concrete or brick patios, tile paths, wooden deck and arbors, etc.) will also be included in the judging.

Awards Nominees and Recipient Recognition
After a residence or business is nominated, the homeowner is given a nomination sign to display in their yard to indicate their property has been included in this year’s Awards program.

Prize-winning gardens are photographed and may be featured on the City's website or in publications such as the Community Calendar.

The Pride of PoCo Garden Awards winners will be recognized for their efforts at a reception held in September 2015
