Redbank Garden Competition 2020

Redbank residents with green thumbs and those who are keen gardeners have been preparing their beautiful gardens all year for the Annual Redbank
Garden Competition. The competition was held in late October and the gardens across the Redbank estate were looking breathtaking. With a total of 28 entries this year, the judges found it very difficult to choose a winner.

The judging panel this year was led by Craig Smith, Redbank’s Landscape Maintenance Manager, whose extensive knowledge in garden maintenance and landscape design meant that he had the perfect eye in distinguishing the most impressive garden in this year’s competition.

All the judges were so amazed with the efforts of this year’s entries and the residents had really outdone themselves. Although it was a difficult decision for the judges by the end of the day the top three Redbank gardens for this year’s competition had to be determined.

To announce the winners and congratulate those who entered, Redbank hosted a community BBQ at the head office. After some short introductions and chatter amongst neighbours it was time to announce this year’s top three for the Annual Redbank Garden competition.

Taking first place for their stunning Yeomans garden was Ida and Warick Harris, taking home the grand prize of $5000. The judges commented how the love, passion and pride that Ida and Warwick had put into their garden shone through; which made them the overall winners of this year’s Annual Redbank Garden competition.

Coming in a close second place were Steve and Kylie Sek, whose Mountain View garden was gorgeous with vibrant potted colour blooming throughout. As runners-up the Sek’s took home $3,000 for presenting such a unique and beautiful garden. The judges were impressed how the Seks had used the sloping gradient of their block to enhance their garden bed.

In third place, came Matt Giles, a new homeowner in the Redbank estate, whose attention to detail and determination in his garden didn’t go unnoticed by the judges. Matt took home a prize of $2,000 for his amazing efforts. The judges loved the symmetry that Matt had created in his garden, creating a crisp appearance across his front yard.

After the formal announcements had ceased the community BBQ came alive in celebration of this year’s winners and the efforts that had been made by all the Redbank residents who entered.

Next Year’s Annual Redbank Spring Garden competition is set to be bigger and better than ever before; the judges cannot wait to see what amazing gardens residents display next year!
