Yard of the Month

Is there an especially attractive yard, maybe yours, in your neighborhood? Master Gardeners want to know!

Each month, nominated Douglas County landscapes are considered by the DCMG for the Yard of the Month contest. The winning entry is acknowledged by recognition in the local newspaper and having the Douglas County Master Gardenersí Yard of the Month sign posted in their yard.
