Beauty Spot Award Program


The LIB Beauty Spot Award successfully launched in 2016. Designed to honor beauty throughout the greater Lewes community, the award also serves to thank gardeners for their efforts to enhance beauty on their properties.  A LIB Beauty Spot winner can be based on overall landscape, planted beds, containers, front door, patios – or even a beautiful corner. It doesn’t have to be an entire yard or property. It can be any size “spot” in the zip code 19958.

Awardees received the Beauty Spot Award sign to display in their yard for a month; an award certificate from LIB; a $25 gift certificate from Wharton’s Garden Center; acknowledgement in the LIB newsletter, website and Facebook; as well as coverage in the Cape Gazette

All residential properties or spots in the greater Lewes 19958 zip code are eligible to participate. Lewes in Bloom membership is not necessary. Residents can self-nominate their property, and the general public can also nominate a residential property that catches their eye. LIB Board of Advisor’s members and LIB Beauty Spot Selection Committee members are not eligible. Candidate residences can be either owner- or professionally-designed and planted, but must be owner-maintained.
