Yard of the Month
Lakewood Trails Neighborhood Association seeks to improve the overall appearance of our community by encouraging neighborhood beautification. The Yard of the Month program recognizes homeowners who add beauty to our neighborhood with the landscaping and maintenance of their yards.
The Yard of the Month will be provided with a decorative yard sign for display in their yard and a $50.00 gift certificate provided by North Haven Gardens. An announcement and picture will be emailed to the neighborhood as well as posted on the Lakewood Trails website and Facebook site. We want to thank North Haven Gardens for their sponsorship of our Yard of the Month program and their generous contribution of gift certificates for the winners. For upcoming classes, newsletters and plant lists from North Haven Gardens, click on the Garden Education tab at nhg.com.
