Planting some flowers and regularly mowing your lawn will not get you a Yard of the Month award on its own. Creativity, functionality, and suitability are assessed as well, and award-winning landscapes complement the structure
while showing originality.
Judging takes place from April to October with particular criteria that qualify a home or business for an award. Yards are judged in 4 categories amounting to 100 points. The categories are project creativity, overall design, technical merit, and planting.
The landscape should include a variety of plant species, with a mixture of colors, forms, and textures. Judges want to see that the right plants are in the right location so that the least amount of water needs
Extra planning could get your yard noticed by the judges and featured on the Webster social media pages and in the newsletter. Good luck!
