Melville Pavement Competiion 2017

Melville Pavement Competition: Overall Winner

Retired horticulturalist Johann Swart is the OVERALL WINNER OF THE MELVILLE BEST PAVEMENTS COMPETITION – for the TWO lovely pavements he has created at 117 and 126 3rd Avenue.

Here is what the judges had to say: “The judges were delighted to find these two lovely gardens across the road from each other. They manage to combine excellent pedestrian access with mature and well planted gardens that are waterwise and mostly indigenous. 126 3rd Ave has a spectacular collection of flowing grass aloes and a beautiful combination of grey and orange planting. 117 is rich and wild with the green denseness balanced by touches of grey and white. These are fine examples of low-maintenance pavement gardens. Well done to the owners and all involved in their creation and maintenance.”

A big thanks to our chief judge, gardening guru Melanie Walker

We have listed winners in four categories and commendations for a number of other pavements together with commentary by our chief judge on our website -

Congratulations to all who entered and all who have made their pavements look so good.
