Garden Club to honor beautiful Del Mar store fronts

Attention Del Mar village business owners: The Del Mar Garden Club is undertaking a new project called “The Pride of Del Mar.”

The club will be giving awards to the best looking outside store fronts in the village. A certificate and public recognition will be given to the businesses that beautify the front of their shop or office with the vegetation of their choice. The Garden Club has led the way by landscaping the post office, library, Crest Rim and City Hall. In addition, the Garden Club maintains the crosswalk at 14th street and the “alley” near 15th.

The post office frontage has been an ongoing project for over 20 years and includes the displays in the kiosk at the west end of the post office.  The Garden Club and many residents of Del Mar recognize the outstanding job many business owners do to make our village more beautiful. Now the Garden Club would like to acknowledge those businesses.

As spring approaches it is time for the business owners in Del Mar to continue the beautification traditions choosing whatever they prefer, be it succulents, native plants or seasonal flowers. The awards will be presented twice a year, in spring and fall and there will be various categories such as succulents, native plants, and flowering plants.
