It’s time again to nominate your house or business, or your neighbor’s, for the H20-20 Keeping Watertown Beautiful Yard of the Month.
To be considered for the award, a committee made up of volunteer master gardeners and citizens will look to see if the property is well tended and attractive. The property must have “passerby” appeal that shows the business/homeowner has pride in their home/business and town shared through their landscape and property decorations.
To nominate a yard for the Yard of the Month, you simply need to grab a piece of paper, or use a form provided at each of the nomination drop boxes. The information needed to nominate a yard is: Name of the person(s) who owns the property, address of the property, Ward property is in, the nominee’s phone number, and e-mail (if known). Citizens can nominate their own yard as well. Then simply drop the form into one of the conveniently located Yard of the Month drop boxes. The drop boxes are located at County Fair Foods, HyVee, and the Watertown Regional Library. Nominations can also be submitted on line by going to the website www.watertown2020.com . The deadline for submitting your nomination for Yard of the Month is Monday, July 28th.
Winners of the Yard of the Month will receive a specially designed “Yard of the Month” sign placed in their front yard for one month, a certificate of recognition signed by the Mayor, acknowledgement on the City of Watertown website, H2O-20 Website and Facebook page and recognition in the local newspaper and radio stations.
