Yard of the Month

The Yard of the Month program is intended to inspire residents of the Oakcrest to take pride in the appearance and upkeep of their yards and the exterior of their homes, and to improve the appearance of our community by promoting well-kept yards. One winner each month will receive a small prize and display a "Yard of the Month" sign in their yard for the entire month. A picture of the winning yard will also be posted in the Wildwood At Oakcrest Community News Facebook Group. Every homeowner is invited to participate.
