Ready, set, grow! We are excited to announce the launch of our Dellrose Yard of the Month program, recognizing our homeowners who strive to beautifully maintain their property and add to the overall appeal of the Dellrose community.
Each month, we will select one home to feature as our dedicated Yard of the Month and will showcase them in our email communications, on our website and social media pages and within the HOA communications too. If selected, you will be awarded with a $50 gift card and will have the honor of displaying the official Dellrose Yard of the Month lawn sign in front of your home to share your achievement with your neighbors. The program will award monthly winners during the months of April through September for landscaping, and for holiday decorations during the months of October and December.
1. Landscaping Awards (April through September):
Yard of the Month candidates for landscaping are judged solely on the exterior appearance of their property as viewed from the street. Yards will be judged on neatness, landscaping, and color. Overall appearance and factors include, but are not limited to, tidiness and neatness of the front and side yards, pruned and trimmed trees and shrubs, edged and defined lawns, borders and flower beds, and a visually appealing façade.
