Lake Vista Garden Club Awards Program
The Lake Vista Garden Club Awards Program promotes the beautification of Lake Vista by providing recognition to the contributions made by individual homeowners in landscaping their property.
Recognition is provided by bestowing awards in three categories of achievement: the monthly “Garden of the Month,” “Le Petit Jardin”, and the annual “Hall of Honor.”
The winners are chosen by a team of Lake Vista Garden Club members who both walk and drive around the neighborhood during each month, and make their selection based on established guidelines, included in the descriptions below.
Winning gardens are announced at Garden Club meetings and posted on the LVPOA Message Board and Garden Club link, and identified onsite through the placement of the official award signs.
Garden of the Month
The “Garden of the Month” designation is given each month to the “best” garden in Lake Vista. In keeping with the unique park-like and open design of the neighborhood, with most homes fronting both on a park or lane as well as on the street or cul-de-sac, gardens in this category are considered from both sides, although one side may predominate.
1. The lawns and gardens must have been established for a period of three months or more.
2. Beds, trees, and shrubs are in scale and proportion to the size of the lot and the house.
3. The garden displays variety and balance in color and greenery: not just colorful annuals and perennials, but shades of green in horticulture and lawn.
4. The plants, trees, and lawns are healthy and well-groomed; walkways and sidewalks are neat and clean.
5. Landscape design compliments the home and green space.
Still interested to purchase or donate a tree?
The Lake Vista Garden Club is promoting an opportunity for property owners to purchase or donate tree(s) for their property or the neighborhood at a volume price discount of $355.00. We have negotiated with Roussel Outdoors, a licensed and insured contractor to plant a selection of 13 beautiful trees specifically for Lake Vista. Tree choices and descriptions can be obtained from the Lake Vista Garden Club homepage.
