Proudly Sponsored by: Bayleys

The Nelmac Garden Marlborough "Best Garden" Awards promotes camaraderie and collaboration between neighbours and encourages the beautification of the Marlborough region as a whole.  Some streets have been so proud to win an award that they have purchased their own street sign to publicise the achievement! Categories include commercial frontages, rest homes and private residences. You can nominate yourself, your neighbour, your street or your retirement village's garden. Celebrate the gardens you see everyday, reward yourself for all your hard work and give yourself or your neighbour a pat on the back!

Nominations are now closed - Winners will be announced at the Stihl Shop Garden Fete on Sunday 12 November 2017.
