The Mountlake Terrace Evergreen Awards recognize property owners and renters who take pride in their community by beautifying, renovating, and improving their homes, condominiums and businesses and adding features that promote sustainability.
Nominations are welcomed and encouraged from all community members. You can nominate your own property or one owned by someone else. Properties being marketed for sale and previous winners are not eligible.
Each property nominated is photographed from the front. If there are indoor sustainable features and/or special features in the back or side yard, please let us know, so that arrangements can be made to photograph those areas, as well. We also use photographs that show the condition of a property before improvements are made for transformation nominees.
