Yard of the Month Information
I sincerely enjoyed driving around the neighborhood each month looking at the beautiful landscaping and flower gardens on display throughout the neighborhood. Congratulations to all the previous winners of the Yard of the Month (YOTM) for 2022. While we were only able to recognize and award a single winner each month there were other residents whose homes were nominated. To all of you, job well done! The YOTM program is one way that the SPHOA continues to encourage our residents to invest in their property. Thank you.
This year (2023) the YOTM season will run from May- September 2023. The judging will take place the first week of each month. The goal of the Yard of the Month (YOTM) program is to recognize individuals whose property exemplifies the vision of the SPHOA neighborhood – beautiful and electric. Each month 1 winner will be selected and recognized. The yard chosen each month will be awarded a gift certificate from either LOWE or Home Depot in the amount of $100 and the YOTM sign displayed in the winner’s yard for the month. Honorary mention is made on the SPHOA website featuring the home with the sign displayed. Judging for the award is done by the SPHOA board members and members of the social event team. A special holiday edition will be recognized in December.
December: The YOTM for December will be judged on the house with the best Christmas decorations. Theme, creativity, and originality in ornamental lighting and decorations will be considered as well as daylight and evening displays as well. Residents will have an opportunity to win in one of three categories: Best Traditional/Best Religious with themes; Best use of Lights with themes, and Best Whimsical with themes. Your participation will surely make our community a welcoming place to visit during the Holiday season. Although there will only be one winner per category everyone is a winner! Every resident gets braggin’ rights!
