NOTE: Nominations are now open for the 2017 season.
All property owners, whether residential, commercial or even industrial are able to participate...and it's free! Residents are able to nominate their own property or other properties they feel would like to be involved. Keep in mind though, permission should be granted from property owners. Once nominated, property owners will be informed by mail or email that their property will be assessed by the Trillium Sub-Committee that is made up of environmental and horticultural industry professionals and advocates.
Property assessment will be of curbside landscaping from the nearest public roadway (backyards excluded). The Trillium Sub-Committee will assess each property utilizing a scoring matrix that was developed by Darryl Bley, Instructor from the Niagara Parks School of Horticulture. Criteria includes; Principles of Design, Turf, Plants, Hardscaping Features, Unique Features and Environmental Issues.
Nomination forms are to be submitted online. The deadline to submit a nomination form annually is July 1st by 4:00pm. If you do not have means to submit online, please call Recreation and Culture at 905-356-7521 ext.3330 for assistance.
NOTE: The Trillium Sub-Committee will be visiting all nominated properties on Thursday, July13, 2017 between 8:45am and 5:00pm. We suggest that you keep your garage doors closed and try not to park along the roadway in front of the property to allow for best viewing and pictures.
