The Community Garden Challenge was a neighbourhood sensation, with over 150 green-thumbed residents from our villa communities flooding us with picturesque entries.

Taking the top honour of the Grand AED 20,000 Prize was Rahim Sajan from Polo Homes in Arabian Ranches for his magnificent garden which scored points for the landscaping, design, creativity, edible patch and most importantly – his devotion and passion to involve the family in creating and building the green space.

From native palm trees, creepers to a vegetable patch, this winning garden spanned the entrance, alleys, backyard, swimming pool and the walls of the home.

The winner on his victorious garden ‘We have built an oasis that we hope to develop into a mature and sustainable garden space to enjoy for years to come. Soil is moved to provide nutrition supply to the remaining planting areas, designed to maximise colour and beauty and to preserve water and use natural forms of plant rotation’, said Rahim.
