Spring has officially begun and the Village of Orland Park is getting reading for the GARDEN season. If you are an amateur gardener, 18 years of age and older and reside within the corporate limits of Orland Park, you are invited to enter the Village's Twelfth Annual Garden Contest and be recognized for what you love to do! Even if you have entered before, you may enter again. The contest is open to residents of detached single-family homes. Sorry, no landscape architects, contractors or professional gardeners are eligible.

Traditional and unusual gardens and those with special features are welcome. Judging will be based on originality, creativity and overall maintenance, as well as the use of native landscaping, color, texture and the variety and combination of plants and flowers used.
Awards will be presented for first, second and third place. Honorable mention awards will be presented for special garden features.

Applications for the Garden Contest are available at the Public Information Desk in the Frederick T. Owens Village Hall, 14700 South Ravinia Avenue or on the village's website at The deadline for entries is June 30, 2010.
