Yard of the Month Guidelines

If you would like to nominate a yard in the neighborhood for yard of the month, please contact us using the email icon in the footer.



The Yard of the Month Committee is dedicated to maintaining the property values, the quality of living and the appearance of our community. Our primary goal is to encourage attractive and well-maintained yards in the neighborhood.

Yard of the Month Contest

We look to celebrate those who do a superior job in maintaining and beautifying their yards.
