The City of Creedmoor proudly sponsors a Yard of the Month contest to encourage residents to participate in yard beautification. From May through September each year, beautiful yards and proud gardeners in our community are recognized and rewarded through this seasonal program. City staff and officials are proud to recognize the efforts residents and encourage everyone to follow their lead to showcase beautiful properties in Creedmoor.
Yards are scored on the following criteria: general upkeep of lawn (well-manicured grass, edged, uniformly green, and generally weed free); flower beds, plants, and shrubbery are neatly pruned and vibrant; entryways, walkways, and/or driveways are inviting; unique landscaping or originality/ creativity; and a pleasant and overall appearance which makes the property an asset and beautifies the community.
Nomination boxes are located at Southern States, City Hall, Creedmoor Drug, and Roma’s Pizza. Nomination cards may be dropped in the boxes at any of these locations, or mailed directly to: Yard of the Month, Creedmoor City Hall, P.O. Box 765, Creedmoor, NC 27522.
Nominees must live within the city limits.
Nominations must be submitted by the 15th of the month preceding the contest month (ex, by April 15 for consideration in May's contest).
Winners will be announced by the end of the first week of the contest month.
Nominees who are not selected must be resubmitted in order to be considered in subsequent month's contest(s).
To provide neighborhood recognition of their hard work, winners receive the Yard of The Month sign to proudly display in their yard for the winning month and they also receive a $25.00 Gift Certificate to Southern States. In addition, the winning yard is photographed and highlighted in a press release to the local newspaper and on the city’s website and social media pages.
Nominate your own yard, or your neighbor’s yard, for consideration in the next Yard of the Month contest!
