Posted on 08/15/2018
The City’s Art and Beautification Board set out Aug. 8 to deliver yard signs to 12 winners of its annual Great Garden Awards. The Great Garden Awards are given out to gardens that exhibit great design, creativity, diversity and overall beauty.

Each member of the board is assigned a geographic location and tours various neighborhoods within those boards to find their nominations. All nominations are then voted upon by the board in its entirety.

“Giving out these awards is one of my favorite things to be able to do as a board member,” said A&B Board Chair Matt Buchanan. “There is no lack of beautiful gardens for us to choose from, but for those who went the extra mile we say congratulations on a garden well done.”

The winners of this year’s Great Garden Awards are:
