The awards are designed to encourage the community to embrace sustainability of our urban landscapes, using a number of techniques that reduce water use including:
- selection of plants that have low water requirements
- mulching to retain moisture
- water source (rainwater, bore)

- use of recycled materials
- sustainability and care of the environment such as garden, appearance, design and functionality
