How To Win Yard Of The Month Every Month

Posted on: 11 July 2018

If you are a part of a planned community or a homeowner's association, they may offer a prize for yard of the month. And although one of your neighbors may seem to get the prize just about every month, wouldn't it be nice if you could have a turn yourself? So, how can you get started at getting one step closer to making that monthly prize all yours? This article will take a closer look at a few ways that you can spruce up your yard. 

Add a Wood Fence

If you have a chain link fence, you aren't doing any one any favors. Not only are chain link fences flimsy but they are a complete eyesore and can make your house look completely outdated and drab. To really spruce things up, invest in a nice wood fence. If you want a fence in your front yard, consider getting a wooden picket fence that's just a couple of feet high; that way you get a little bit of security without having it cover the front of your house from the street. If you need a fence for your backyard, there are several different types of wood fencing options and designs for you to pick. Companies like Rainier Fencing & Decking can help with this.

Keep Your Lawn Green

Does your lawn look more dead than it does alive? Maybe you need some new sod or you just need to water your grass more. make sure that you fertilize your lawn every season, that you water it at least every other day, and that you mow it every week or so. Also, if you have an abundance of weeds that are practically taking over, then invest in some weed killer spray that you can spray right on them. 


Flowers make everything look prettier; even if your house is a little outdated. You can plant both annuals (which you have to replant every year) or perennials which come back every spring. With a combination of both types of flowers, you can make your yard look more like an oasis than anything else. 

If you want to win yard of the month this year, then you may have to step up your gardening game. Try using these three tips to help make your yard stand out from the rest.
