The City of Mill Creek’s Art and Beautification Board recently selected the 2017 Great Garden Awards winners. Based on tours of the city’s single-family homes in June and July, board members made their decisions and placed signs on the winners' front yards in August.
Each year members of the City of Mill Creek’s Art and Beautification Board tour the city and make note of those residents who have put exceptional time and effort into their property’s beautification. The Great Garden Award program gives awards across the city to deserving gardeners.
Great Garden Award winners receive a keepsake and a yard sign placed in their yard for the month of August. The Mill Creek City Council recognized the winners at their regular September 5th city council meeting.
