BSW Beautification 

Yard of the Month is Back!

The Braun Station West (BSW) Board of Directors is pleased to announce the return of the Yard of the Month award! We would like to recognize our residents who demonstrate superior effort in maintaining their property, which positively contributes to the overall appearance of our community.

Each month, one award will go to Best Xeriscape, and three awards to Exemplary Yard. Please submit nominations using the link below. 

Yard of the Month Nomination Form

Nominated yards that are not selected will automatically be considered in the remaining months’ judging.

The four winners will be chosen around the 15th of each month, weather permitting, for the months of May through September and will be announced shortly thereafter.

Good luck to all you green thumbs!
