The winners of the 2019 Bayside Garden Competition have been announced last Saturday at an outdoor function at the Bayside Garden Centre.
Bayside Council mayor Joe Awada said the centre was the perfect venue to celebrate the gardeners of Bayside.
"Nothing showcases this wonderful mix of people and buildings better than the gardens we create," Councillor Awada said.
"Private gardens are as vital as public parks and reserves. The Bayside Garden Competition
recognises the role gardens play in making our suburbs some of the most attractive in Sydney."
