It's been a tough summer for keeping up with your yard. 

Between the excessive rain and fluctuating temps, just keeping your yard under control has been an accomplishment.

That's why these 6 yards, chosen by the village of Machesney Park, deserve some extra praise.

Here are the 6 yards of distinction in Machesney Park for the month of August:

District 1 - Mai Residence - 2960 Vaughndale Drive

District 3 - Ulmer Residence - 9228 N. Alpine Rd


District 4 - Fiepke Residence - 8109 Mildred Road

Congrats to all the winners. Looking forward to what the residents have in store for September.
