To celebrate the beauty of the Kirkland territory and highlight our collective effort to beautify our town, the Municipal Council invites homeowners and corporate citizens to enter Kirkland’s newest contest “Kirkland in Bloom”!

» Deadline to register: August 1st, 2017


Assessment of the property

During the month of August, a landscape professional hired by the Town will be assessing participating properties, limiting his appraisal to the portion of land visible from the street, including the building facade and side setbacks.

Global appreciation will be attributed on a 5-point scale in accordance with pre-established criteria, based on the aesthetic and environmental value of the landscapes.  Assessment is based on the proportion of available land irrespective of lot size, so that small and larger lots are placed on the same footing.
