Yard of the Week Winners

In 2012, Day County Housing Development brought the Yard of the Week program back to life in Webster, with the help of local residents, Day County Arts Council, Reporter & Farmer, Fiksdal Furniture & Gifts, and Webster Lumber & Home Center.

Week 13 #YOTW17

This yard greets the viewer with a large eagle in a corner of the front yard. While this draws the viewers eye, a closer study of the yard leads one to a multitude of delightful moments that lead all the way around the house and back to the back yard. Flowers line the driveway and colorful blooms of all kinds make this yard a banquet for the eye.

Week 12 #YOTW17

This yard shows a great effort that is done for several welcoming areas of the yard. There is a mix of potted and permanent plants!

Week 11 #YOTW17

This is a very large yard that has a clean inviting look. The area at the house has chairs set up in a very inviting way and accented with several areas of flowers. There are often residents and guests sitting outside enjoying the pleasure of South Dakota summer air. On the east side the trees have been trimmed but the residents have made good use of two very large roots to make them places that add interest to the yard. The west side has day lilies and a very large but well kept back yard.

Week 14 #YOTW16

"This shaded yard with a cottage like home has not only an inviting and always beautifully groomed front yard but also a back yard that seems to invite the neighbors in for a late night chat on the patio. The artistically arranged floral displays offer lots of opportunities to view the art of Mother Nature at her best. This yard shows that love has gone into its creation."

Week 10 #YOTW16

"Featuring a large well groomed yard crowned by a relocated farmhouse. The yard, which overlooks Webster, has a rural theme featuring an antique piece of farm equipment set in a bed of flowers. As though developed as a beautiful landscape painting, the south side of the yard features a background of a field proudly growing corn."

Jim & Betty Paszek | 2016
