Best Kept Front Garden Competition

Chorley Council has joined forces with Birkacre Garden Centre and the Garden Society to find the Borough's best kept front gardens.

We're celebrating this achievement by organising our best ever Best Kept Garden competition with more prize money than ever before to be won - plus an extra category to enter to reflect community efforts. So we need you to nominate those gardens that you think do Chorley proud.

Rules and information

  1. You can nominate your own garden, a neighbour's garden or a garden you've seen in the borough, but you must have the homeowner's permission first.
  2. Gardens and displays can be of any design or size but must be visible from the road or pavement.
  3. An expert panel from Chorley Council and Chorley & District Gardening Society will judge each entry w/c 1 August.
