Winning designs will be constructed. The budget for the creation and construction of each garden is $25,000 (CAN) and divided in the following fashion:

- $5,000 for the designers’ honorarium, which is paid to the designers in two instalments;
- Up to $10,000 for the purchase of materials necessary for the realization of the project (including engineering or other fees if required). This budget is managed jointly by the Festival and the designer;
- Up to $10,000 for labour costs for the construction of the garden. The budget for labour is nontransferable. Up to $2,000 is available for travel expenses and meals to allow designers to travel to the Festival. In addition, designers are housed summer houses nearby in Métis-sur-Mer at the Festival’s expense during the week of the Festival opening, from June 15 to 22, 2013. Designers are free and encouraged to solicit donations or grants for materials or other expenses (travel, printed material, etc.) for the realization of their garden. The Festival offers a range of visibility for donors and sponsors depending on the magnitude of the contribution in cash or product.
