Best Kept Gardens & Community Green Space

The Best Kept Garden & Community Green Area is part of the annual Ennis Tidy Towns Local Awards and is our way of saying thanks to all of you who take such pride in your gardens, green areas, residential streetscapes, civic gardens and Shrines.

Your passion and hard work is a major contributor to Ennis ranking so highly in the National Tidy Towns Awards and for this, we are truly grateful.

Like the National Awards, our  Competition is recognising the importance of native biodiversity and therefore have a Community Biodiversity toolkit with tips.

 

Annual Best Kept Gardens Competition 2020

We continue to recognise the importance of native biodiversity in gardens and therefore we are continuing our ‘Biodiversity Garden’ Category for 2020. These are gardens which purposely make room for traditional garden plants as well as native flora, bees, butterflies, hedgehogs and other wildlife. We would also like to see biodiversity catered for, where possible, in the Large, Medium and Small Garden categories.

And don’t worry, if your garden is at the back of your house we will contact you to arrange a time to view it so please do enter! Adjudication will adhere to all COVID19 guidelines to ensure everyone’s safety.

Annual Best Kept Community Green Space Competition 2020

The Community Green Space Competition (also known as the Green Areas Award) is part of
the annual Ennis Tidy Towns Local Awards and is supported by the community.

Like the National Awards, our Community Green Space Competition is recognising the
importance of native biodiversity and therefore we would like to see projects or measures you
have taken to promote native flora and fauna. We are mindful that it needs to be site
appropriate so if you live along a residential street, maintain a civic garden or Shrine we will
recognise the more limited options available and how more formal planting may be desired.
Best of luck from all at Ennis Tidy Towns!
