The City of Park Ridge and the Park Ridge Garden Club are co-sponsoring a Beautification Awards Program for all residents in the City of Park Ridge.  The Awards Program gives special recognition to those residents who have made their homes and landscaping the most attractive in our City.

Five winners will each receive $100 from the Garden Club, lawn signs from the City, and gift certificates from the Chamber of Commerce valid at local businesses.  Previous winners are not eligible.

 

Judging is done on the street view portion of the property only by landscape design consultants from the

Garden Clubs of Illinois. The following standards for evaluating landscape design will be used:

•    Year-round overall appearance - paved areas, condition of buildings, perennial plant material.

•    Design - color, layout, originality, beauty, special feature.

•    Lawn condition - maintenance, quality of turf.

•    Trees, shrubs - condition of plant material, proportion and scale of plant material to structures.

•    Flowers and other plantings - variety, color, condition.

 

Application deadline is July 3, with photos being taken the week of July 13.
