Newton, NC – Do you or someone you know have a yard that deserves recognition? The Newton Appearance Commission invites you to nominate that special yard for the Newton AppearanceYard of the Month honor.

The commission will choose one yard to receive the Yard of the Month honor each month from June through August. Selection will be based on attractive, well-maintained landscaping and overall aesthetics.

A certificate will be presented to the homeowner selected each month. Winners will also be presented with a Yard of the Month sign to display in their yard that month. The winners and their yards will be featured on Newton’s website and social media pages, and in the citywide newsletter.
