The Stay Home, Spruce Up contest wrapped up at the end of May, and we are excited to announce the three winners that were selected by the Ferndale Beautification Commission.
First Place ($100 Home Depot Gift Card):
Resident: Christy on Jewell Street
Improvements Done: “We painted the exterior of our house; including trim, several sections of siding (upper level of house), porch, chimney, and gutters. We also decided to replace the mulch in the plant beds with one yard of large egg rocks.”
Second Place ($50 Visa Gift Card):
Resident: Christopher on Manatee Street
Improvements Done: “We trimmed up the plants and removed leaves from the flower beds and got rid of all the weeds. We laid new mulch, put up decorative pieces, added flowers, and put up a small fencing in the rear of the property.”
Third Place ($50 Visa Gift Card):
Resident: Melissa on Orchard Street
Improvements Done: “We removed old rocks, weeds, and landscape fabric. We dug out a better slope for the downspout and leveled a small pad. Used paver bricks from another part of the yard to line the downspout path and small area under the bird feeder to make it easier to clean to deter rodents. We cleaned off the porch and planted flower seeds in pots, weeded the flower beds, and put up the decorations we had in storage.”
Thank you to everyone who entered!
