YK gardeners recognized with multiple awards
Yellowknife, N.W.T. -Some Yellowknife residents were recognized with awards for their garden work they present at the Lawn and Landscaping Competition.
Awards were given out for the best residential and commercial landscaping, best lawn, best vegetable and rock gardens, as well as the best greenhouse and the highly coveted people's choice award.
This year's winner of the commercial landscaping award, Faith Embleton, explained why she and her husband decided to enter this year.
"Our friends are also encouraging us saying you should entre, so this year I relented and entered. But the landscaping and gardening that my husband and I do it really isn’t about this contest, it’s about pride of ownership of our property and of the city of Yellowknife."
Embleton said getting this recognition from the gardening community is good for her business as well.
"It’s actually very good it does help advertise your business for one, and I think it just promotes our community pride of what our community looks like. And I think it’s not a horrendous job to get out in your yard and beautify it."
She also said she gets comments from tourists who are staying at her bed and breakfast on their garden.
