Yard of the Month - Program Guidelines
The Sunrise Beatification Committee is dedicated to improving the appearance of our community. We encourage residents to take pride in their homes and neighborhood.
The Sunrise Homeowner’s Association Yard of the Month program has been established to encourage homeowners to improve the overall appearance of their lawn and landscapes. The program is to recognize homeowners who demonstrate above‐average efforts in maintaining their property, contributing to the overall appearance of the community. These awards are administered entirely by volunteers.
On (or about) the first of every month, from May through September, the Sunrise Homeowner Beautification Committee will choose one lawn and landscape that best exhibits curb appeal and beauty within the guidelines. If you are interested in volunteering for the committee, please email Kat at firstname.lastname@example.org.
Each Yard of the Month winner will be provided with a decorative yard sign that displays their winning yard. A posting and photo on our community website as well as a $40 credit towards their HOA dues. The yard sign must be displayed prominently in the yard for the entire award month.
• All homes within Sunrise are eligible (Board members excluded).
• Award winners will be selected on the criteria listed below.
• Landscaping may be done by the residents or professional landscaper.
• A property cannot receive more than one award for Yard of the Month in a calendar period.
• Each winner is expected to maintain their yard during the award month.
Yard of the Month candidates are judged solely on the exterior appearance of their lawn and landscape as viewed from the street. General upkeep of the yard and property considers include the overall appearance, tidiness and neatness of the front of the property as evidenced by pruned, trimmed and shaped foliage, edged and defined lawns, borders & flower beds.
