The Owensboro Neighborhood Alliances are teaming up for a fun contest that's going to encourage folks to get out in the yard and get them looking good for the quickly-approaching summer.  The Alliances just announced "Owensboro's Nicest Lawn in the Neighborhood" contest. Here's how it's going to work.

Owensboro is actually home to twelve different neighborhood alliances and each of the twelve will be choosing a finalist to represent that area of town. By the way, the entry period is from May 16th through June 6th.  So, don't worry!  You have plenty of time to get your yard and that landscaping photo ready.

Thank goodness! I just had all leaves raked out of my landscaping and all the weeds pulled, but I haven't had the time to lay down a new layer of mulch.  At the rate I am going, I am probably going to have to pull weeds again before that happens.  I will likely completely miss this entry deadline.  If I am lucky, my yard will be ready for the summer by September.  LOL.

Hopefully, you're in much better shape and ready to enter the contest.

The twelve chosen finalists will go head to head in a round of public voting, which will take place from June 20th through June 27th.  The winner will be announced on July 5th.  Each finalist will receive a $100 gift card to Integrity Nursery & Outdoor Living.  The grand prize winner, as chosen by the public, will win a $500 gift certificate to Integrity.
