It’s time for Blaine’s gardeners to make the most of the summer sunshine: The annual Yard of the Week contest will be launching on Wednesday, May 21. 

Since 2007, the Blaine is Beautiful committee has granted the award to outstanding yards and gardens to encourage more beautiful landscaping and a more beautiful town. To qualify for the prize, the yard or garden must be visible from the street and must be within city limits, including Semiahmoo. Both residential and commercial properties are eligible. 

The Blaine is Beautiful committee encourages nominations from the community, even if those nominations are for your own yard. Winners of the coveted prize will receive a certificate, recognition in The Northern Light and on the city of Blaine’s website and a sandwich board that identifies the yard as the week’s winner. The contest will run through August 28. For more information, or to nominate yourself or a neighbor, contact Debbie Harger at 360/543-9982 or at
