FALLBROOK – The Fallbrook Beautification Alliance (FBA) is pleased to announce that nominations are now being accepted for the Fallbrook 2013 Outstanding Landscape Awards. The program, established in 2008, is designed to recognize the efforts of individuals and organizations that contribute to community pride through excellence in landscaping, beautification and continued property maintenance.

One again the FBA will be awarding each of the winning property owners with one adult ticket to Fallbrook’s popular July 4 celebration held annually at the Grand Tradition Estate and Gardens. The winners will be announced in the Village News, FBA website and posted lawn signs.

"The program continues to grow and we have been very impressed by the beautiful landscapes and gardens in Fallbrook. A big thank you to all the people of Fallbrook that help beautify our community." stated Janice Phoenix, chairman of the program.

Fallbrook residents or businesses are invited to submit their nominations by April 30 for consideration in the following categories:

• Residential: Overall appearance or improvement of property

• Multi-Family Development: Apartments, condos or residential development

• Commercial Property: Restaurant, retail, gas station, manufacturing, etc.

• Non-Profit Agency: School, church, museum, etc.

• Water Wise Gardens: Garden must be predominantly water wise plants

A panel of volunteer judges will review the submitted nominations in each category. The sites will be judged on the plants used, landscape design and maintenance, as well as how the landscape complements the structural features of the location. Recognition will be given to those who go "above and beyond" in renovating and maintaining their property.

To be eligible, projects must be located in the Fallbrook 92028 zip code and visible, by the public, from the street. Previous years nominations (other than the prior years’ winners) may be re-submitted for consideration. No member of the FBA executive board, advisory board or panel of judges will be eligible to compete.

There is no charge to submit a nomination, and the public is encouraged to nominate as many properties as they believe deserve the recognition and award, theirs or a neighbor’s. Photographs may be included with the nomination, but are not required. The FBA will not be able to return photos.
