Lawn of the Week
Get your mower and green thumb ready- this summer our "Lawn of the Week" program is back! City staff will be identifying outstanding yards of IGH residents whose lawn exemplify both neatness and natural beauty.  As they find a winner, a sign will be placed in their front yard for one week to proclaim their lawn as the "Lawn of the Week."

The winners will be honored at a Parks and Recreation Commission meeting in the fall, with a slide show that features each lawn.  Recipients will receive a certificate of achievement and a gift card from Gertens!

If you would like to nominate a lawn in your neighborhood, please contact Jen Graham at 651-450-2580 or
