Spring Yard of the Season deadline – May 24

Yard of the Season has been established to promote goodwill and reward exemplary lawn care in the community! The purpose of the program is to recognize neighbors who demonstrate above-average efforts in maintaining their property, thereby contributing to the overall appearance of the community at large. This project is sponsored by The Jeter Group in Calvert City!

Yard of the Season Guidelines
– All residential properties within the city limits are automatically eligible.
– Award winners are selected based on the recommended judging criteria listed below.
– The upkeep of the yard can reflect the efforts of the residents themselves or that of a professional landscaper.
– The same property cannot receive more than one award in a 12-month calendar period.
– The judging months are May, August, October (Fall Decorating Contest), and December (Holiday Decorating Contest).

Judging Criteria
-Yard of the Season candidates are judged solely on the total exterior appearance of their property and front yard.
– Factors include the overall appearance, tidiness, neatness, trimmed and shaped foliage, and visually appealing façade.
– Nominations can be submitted via the form below.
– Walkways and driveways shall be clean (including trash containers or yard products removed from view). The area in front of the curb must be free from debris and dirt. The appearance after dusk includes accent lighting, safety lighting, visible interior lighting, etc.
– The front entryway should be inviting, with original and creative touches to show personality (hanging baskets, pots, yard art, bird feeders, etc.)

The Yard of the Season is dedicated to improving the quality of living and appearance of our community. We encourage residents to take pride in their homes and neighborhoods. In turn, we look to celebrate those who do a superior job in maintaining their yards in such a way that they enhance the overall curb appeal of the entire community.

Winners will receive a $50 gift card to Holly Nursery. These gift cards are sponsored by The Jeter Group in Calvert City.
