Show off your green thumbs, Westlake!
Any Westlake resident who enjoys gardening or landscaping should sign up for the 2021 Westlake in Bloom competition!
The June 25 registration deadline will be here sooner than you think, with judging set to take place July 6-8.
This year, the free registration process will be easier than ever for Westlake residents, businesses and institutions. Sign-up forms can be completed online through the City's website without downloading, emailing or mailing a thing.
Paper entry forms are available at Westlake City Hall, Porter Library, Cahoon Nursery, Dean’s Greenhouse and Gale’s Westlake Garden Center and can be mailed to Westlake City Hall, 27700 Hilliard Blvd.
If you have ever considered entering but decided not to, remember that there are a number of categories available. Does your front yard often get compliments from your neighbors? What about your flower boxes or hanging baskets? Do you have a particularly nice assortment of floral features on your patio or maybe around your apartment or condominium entrance? Maybe you enjoy growing your own food and have a wonderful vegetable garden. Or, if you have a shady spot in your yard, you may have a lush shade garden to showcase. These are just some of the categories that make up Westlake in Bloom.
All entrants receive an invitation to the awards ceremony in August where the winners will receive their awards, presented by Mayor Dennis Clough. You could be one of them!
