Tremains Spring Spruce Up

Tremains is delighted to be principal sponsor of the Tremains Spring Spruce Up, an event managed in partnership with the Hastings District Council.

If you live in Havelock North, Flaxmere, Hastings or in a coastal or rural community, be rewarded for sprucing up your plot! We want to encourage and celebrate those who are doing their bit to keep Hastings beautiful – and cement our status as New Zealand’s most beautiful city, one property at a time.

Whether you already have a beautiful garden or you’re doing up your front yard with a lick of paint and some new plantings, we want you! With both an open and a makeover category, the Tremains Spring Spruce Up Awards has something for everyone.

Sweet cash prizes and vouchers from participating businesses to be won!


Open category: If you already have a beautiful garden or front yard, then this category is perfect for you! This category is judged after the closing date.

Before and after makeover category: Doing up your front yard? Make sure you take a before photo which you will need to supply as part of your entry.


First prize of $2000 in each category
Cash and voucher prizes for 2nd and 3rd place in each category
