Beautification Award Nominations

Nominations are currently open! Nominate a neighbor here!

Nominations are accepted in the month of May for June awards, in June for July awards, and in July for August awards.

Beautification Awards recognize township properties with outstanding gardening, landscape design and property maintenance.

Monthly winners have decorative lawn markers placed on their properties and are considered for a Beautification Award which includes recognition at a township trustee meeting and a matted certificate with a photograph of their property.

We recognize attractive properties not only because they’re beautiful, but because they inspire others to maintain and improve their property. The ripple effect results in attractive neighborhoods and higher property values.

Community members nominate properties and residents on our Visual Improvement Program (VIP) Committee judge properties according to curb appeal, maintenance, and the design of green space which includes plants, color, texture and space.

These Properties Were Recognized in 2022

A total of 24 stand-out properties were selected in 2022 for Beautification Awards from the township's Visual Improvement Program Committee (VIP).

Beautification Awards are a way to say thank you to people who work hard to make their yards attractive. Their efforts  benefit the entire community by encouraging others to maintain attractive, well-kept neighborhoods. Winners are honored each October at a Washington Township Trustee meeting that includes a reception and an awards presentation with a slide show of the winning properties. Awards are based on:

    • The use of flowers and landscaping
    • Maintenance
    • Overall curb appearance
    • How well the property stands out in the neighborhood
