“It’s definitely something that a lot of residents enjoy doing,” David Ugarte, the resident service specialist for Hunt Military Communities, said. “As well as our advisory board, they enjoy being judges for that contest.”
The four-member community advisory board goes through the housing areas on a scheduled day each month. They take photos of the yards they like best among the duplexes and for the single houses.
“We choose a photo at random for each category for the winner,” Ugarte said. The winning duplex and the winning single house each receive a $20 gift card to Lowe’s.
September’s winners are 545B Willow Circle, duplex; and 635 Dyer Circle, single house.
This month’s judging dates are Oct. 26-30 and the winners will be announced
Nov. 2. Some 342 of Redstone’s 353 houses were occupied as of Sept. 29.
