Nominations are being accepted for the sixth annual Betty Crocker Landscape Awards. This program annually honors the best of Hawaii’s garden and landscape projects and the individuals who make them happen. Deadline for nominations is May 15.
Nominations are being sought in four categories
- Private individuals. These are local homeowners and others who help create a better Hawaii and spread their gardening aloha by simply beautifying their front and back yards for all to see.
- Professional projects. This category covers professional landscape architects, government planners, gardeners and caretakers whose projects show a high degree of excellence and enhance the scenic beauty of the state.
- Volunteers, public spaces and non-profit groups. Winners include those who take care of public and private spaces, including schools, parks, and public right-of-ways, thereby maintaining and adding to the natural greening of Hawaii.
- Xeriscaping. This categories includes projects whose landscaping and gardening efforts are consistent with best natural practices, especially those that include Native Hawaiian and other “less thirsty” plants which conserve water.
Nominations should include the name, address and phone number of the landscaping project, the person principally responsible for the work, and the nominator. They should also include detailed written descriptions and photographs of the project.
Nominations can be sent to:
Scenic Hawaii, P.O. Box 10501, Honolulu, HI 96816
