LAKEVIEW IN BLOOM

Best Summer Yard Contest – June 2022

We are pleased to introduce the Lakeview In Bloom – Best Summer Yard Contest. The contest encourages community pride by cleaning, maintaining, and improving a property. Our community deserves a beautiful place to live, work and play! We want to recognize and reward members of our community whose properties reflect pride and have a beautiful, pleasing appearance.

We want to see your Best Summer Yards. Show us your fresh mowed lawns, potted plants and porches, your winding paths and secret hideaways, or your prized gardens. Most of all, show us your love for up keeping your yard. It is a great way to share and encourage enthusiasm for gardening and landscaping while showing off your personal style. We are so excited to see what you all come up with! Good luck to all!
