Extreme Makeover Nacogdoches Yard Edition
The tenth annual Nacogdoches Azalea Trail will usher in springtime in East Texas March 14-31, 2009 and the Nacogdoches CVB wants to help homeowners along the trail get ready! To do so, the CVB presents the 1st annual Extreme Makeover Nacogdoches Yard Edition.
“We are thrilled to present this contest to our homeowners along the trails,” said Sherri Skeeters, assistant director of the CVB “we couldn’t have pulled it all together without the support of our sponsors and the SFA Mast Arboretum.”
All homeowners along the three azalea trails are encouraged to enter the contest. Residents can see if their home qualifies by logging onto www.nacogdochesazaleas.com.
The CVB is looking for a special front yard along the route that they can enhance with beautiful azaleas, donated by the SFA Mast Arboretum. Entries must be received by Friday, September 26, 2008 in order to be selected by a panel of expert judges.
Bailey Bark Materials is donating the mulch and supplies for the makeover, while Ronny Nelson’s company Lawn World will do the labor on the 100 square foot makeover.
The makeover will take place in October, just in time to make the special front yard breathtaking during March’s Azalea Trail. Before and after photos will be displayed on the Azalea Trail website and will be recognized during the Azalea season.
“We really hope this is something we can do every year,” said Skeeters, The Azalea trail brings in thousands of visitors to the Oldest Town in Texas each spring. With a record breaking 2,000 coming into the Visitor’s Center last March. “We really hope our extreme makeover will help to enhance the already beautiful trail.”
