Yard of the Month
Yard of the Month recognizes Waterside Residents who contribute to the overall aesthetics and health of our community by maintaining exceptionally clean and beautiful properties. Nominations for the program are open to all Waterside residents.
To be considered for the Yard of the Month Program, a property must:
Be well-groomed (properties can have a natural, wild-scape appearance, but grass must be mowed, and the perimeter of the property must be edged).
Be attractive and pleasing to the eye (eg. green lawn; a variety of plants such as trees, shrubs, ground cover, flowers, wildflowers; plants with a variety of heights, textures, and colors; landscape features such as fountains, large rocks in beds, etc.).
Have buildings, fences, porches, and patios in good condition (i.e. minimal distraction from the landscape due to deterioration, damage or construction).
Have invested extra effort through the use of attractive art pieces (eg. pottery, ironwork), potted plants, birdhouses, etc. *Natural landscape should be the primary focus.
Be free of litter, junk and debris (no appliances or indoor furniture on porches or patios; free of junked or inoperable vehicles; no parking on the lawn).
