Niagara Falls, ON, June 1, 2017 – Nominations are now available online for the Niagara Falls Summer Trillium Recognition Program, at www.niagarafalls.ca/trillium. This well-established program encourages residents to beautify their curbside landscaping and to foster city-wide beautification by enhancing properties through decorative hardscapes and plant material. The deadline to make a nomination is July 1, 2017.
Each property that enters the program will be assessed by the Trillium Sub-Committee on Thursday, July 13th. The assessment consists of a quick overview of 6 essential elements that make up a great landscape:
- Principles of design
- Environmental features
- Unique features
The assessment is conducted by professional landscapers and experienced horticulturalists. Upon completion, property owners can receive professional feedback regarding their property if desired. The program also offers gardening learning tools and essentials to help beginners get started through an online Q&A feature, where residents can ask professionals precise gardening questions. New for the assessments this year, will be a focus on native plant material as the Trillium Sub-Committee wants to encourage residents to buy and plant local.
The program is administered through the Park in the City Committee and delivered by the Trillium Sub-Committee. The Sub-Committee requests that residents register online to enter the program by visiting www.niagarafalls.ca/trillium to complete a nomination and to learn more about the program.
