The Edmond Urban Forestry Commission is seeking nominations for the 2018 Landscape Improvement Award! This award recognizes local home owner associations/neighborhood groups that have enhanced their neighborhood environment through the planting of trees and other landscaping. The winning group will receive additional trees for their neighborhood and the Landscape Improvement Award sign will be placed near their winning project during the following growing season.
Neighborhood groups that are located within Edmond City Limits may apply with a project that was completed since July 31st, 2017 within a neighborhood-managed area. Landscape projects that enhance the neighborhood environment are eligible, with greatest emphasis on tree plantings.
The Landscape Improvement Award sign was placed near the entrance of the Autumn Ridge neighborhood this spring, recognizing them as recipient of the 2017 award. Their winning project included the addition of shrubs and perennials within the forested landscapes at the entrance to the neighborhood and installation of a new fountain in the detention pond.
