Around here, folks are pretty passionate about their yards and keeping their lawn tidy and attractive, and the City of Huntsville wants to see just how passionate you are by turning your lawn maintenance into some friendly competition.

To encourage District 1 residents to maintain their yards this season and beyond, Huntsville City Councilman Devyn Keith is inviting homeowners to participate in the second annual A Cut Above District 1 Summer Landscaping Challenge.

So, do you think you have the best yard in your community? Well, here is tour chance to prove it.

The front-yard competition launches Monday, June 19, and concludes Monday, July 31. Residents in District 1 can vie for up to three titles:

  • Best Landscaping (focuses on textures, colors, composition and more technical aspects of landscaping)
  • Most Captivating Floral Display
  • Best Curb Appeal (overall quality)

“Last year’s challenge was a big hit, and we hope to build on the momentum in 2023. Whether you’re a landscaping pro or just getting started, now is the time to show your chops and help keep Huntsville beautiful.”

Devyn Keith, Huntsville City Council

Winners selected by a committee of City leaders will be contacted in mid-August. The City Council will recognize each homeowner at a public meeting later that month.
