Waterwise Recognition Program

We are pleased to recognize the efforts of Brantford residents who have converted to waterwise gardening.

Waterwise landscaping criteria

  • More plants than grass
  • Most plants are native, perennial, or drought-tolerant
  • Property requires little to no watering
  • Rain barrels are frequently used
  • Well mulched (includes living mulch)

How the program works

A team of judges including past award winners, Brantford Garden Club members, and City staff, will be scouting front yards throughout Brantford to look for those with significant coverage of waterwise landscaping.

Your landscaping must meet a minimum aesthetic standard and any invasive or aggressive plants must be under control.

Winning properties will be notified by mail and invited to attend a Brantford Garden Club meeting in the fall to be formally recognized.
