Blaine’s annual Yard of the Week contest will begin its fifth season this month.

Blaine community development coordinator Debbie Harger said the first award of the year will be presented May 12 and will recognize a spring garden in bloom as selected by the Blaine is Beautiful committee. Subsequent awards will be given each week through September 15.

Yards must be within Blaine city limits or the Semiahmoo area and can include all types of gardening efforts such as container gardens, flower boxes, vegetable gardens and rock or water gardens.

“Basically anything that creates beauty visible from the street will be considered,” Harger said.

Commercial businesses and multi-family residences will also be eligible this year, she said.

Winners of the contest will receive recognition and be included in a drive-by tour at the end of the year.
