2021 Westlake in Bloom Winners

More than 60 entrants competed to be named among the top 3 in each of 17 categories during the 2021 Westlake in Bloom Competition.


Each of the first-place winners were then judged to see who deserved the coveted Lu Walter “Best in Bloom” Award, reserved for the best of the best every year.


Last year’s top prize went to Lou and Jean Povinelli, who also took first place in the “Residential Landscaping – Rear Yard, Small” category.


Westlake Mayor Dennis M. Clough expressed gratitude for the hard work and passion showcased by the gardeners and landscapers who competed, helping to make the City of Westlake a little more beautiful in the process.

In his ninth year as the event’s chief organizer, Planning and Economic Development Director James Bedell proudly called upon each of the winners by name to receive their custom awards for first, second and third place. The Mayor posed for pictures with each of them as a slideshow of their meticulously cultivated gardens, flower boxes, yards and businesses scrolled by in the background.
