Front Yards in Bloom

Creating Bloomin’ Great Neighbourhoods One Yard at a Time! 
Do your friends and neighbours have beautiful yards?  Consider nominating someone’s yard for a Front Yards in Bloom Award. This program is all about recognizing and appreciating neighbours who make an effort to beautify their front yards. 

Did you know you can nominate a yard in one of four categories? 
General: Appealing front yards that makes people smile as they pass by! Can include a variety of colours, textures, plants, and garden features.
Natural: Yards with a “natural” aesthetic, using native plants, and limited chemicals.
Edible: Yards including edible fruits, flowers, and plants into the landscape design.
Public Spaces (*New*): Yards with landscaping features and aesthetic appeal in  front of a public building (e.g., schools, offices, multi-unit residences, churches, and community league halls)

Nominations can be submitted until Mon June 30.  It’s easy to nominate! Submit nominations online at www.frontyardsinbloom.ca or by calling 311.  Anyone can submit a nomination (no self-nominations please)

Nominees will receive a yellow lawn sign and mailbox brochure.  Award recipients will be announced at the Edmonton In Bloom Awards, Wed Aug 13, 2014. 

We are hoping to get more than 3,000 nominations city-wide this year, so don’t delay, nominate someone’s yard today!
