Nominate your favorite Backyard for the Beautiful Gardens contest

Deb Dunn-Silis’ Lakeville garden was one of last year’s winners.

Now that it is officially summer, is the garden looking gorgeous? Or maybe there.

Why not share its attractiveness? Nominate the garden in our Beautiful Gardens competition.

House + Garden hunts out the best residential gardens, during nongardening subsequently publishes the winners every year. Each winning garden will be showcased at the Star Tribune and online at www.startribune.com.

The garden can be any kind — small or large; suburban, urban or rural; ornamental edible or both. It can be found anywhere in Minnesota or Wisconsin.

It might be your own parents’ garden, your buddy garden or your own. Why keep a thing that is gorgeous ?

It’s simple to nominate a garden. Just send several snapshots, along with a brief description, for example: what makes it unique and who tends the garden.

Here’s a suggestion to enhance your favourite garden’s likelihood of being chosen a winner: Photos don’t have to be of professional grade, but be sure to include at least one which reveals a back-off perspective of this garden. Close-ups of irises and amazing roses are great, but the judges also need to observe how components in the garden work together to make an entire.

We’ll accept entries through July 20. Send entries to: 650 3rd Av, Beautiful Gardens, Star Tribune. S., Minneapolis, MN 55488. Or email entries to beautifulgardens@startribune.com.
