February 2019 Yard of the Month

The Keep La Marque Beautiful Commission wants to recognize Industrial Commissioning Consultants International (ICCI) at 714 SH 3 in La Marque as our February Business Yard of The Month. I spoke to the Chief Technology Officer, Bill Bogar, about how excited we were to see a new business move into our neighborhood who put such effort into making and old place look new again (the fence is beautiful). Bill told me that they do weekly trash patrol to keep everything spiffy, and he was very interested in being involved in KLMB’s city-wide clean-up events. We love businesses and residents who want to be involved in our city beautification projects. Congratulations to ICCI, and all their employees, for keeping La Marque beautiful, and a job well done!

April 2018 Yard of the Month

When Brandy Grantland and Dave Edwards moved into their new home in Painted Meadows it didn't look like it does today. The yard didn't do justice to their pretty new home, so they went to work and created a beautiful frame for it. Now, when you drive into their neighborhood, your attention is instantly grabbed by the flow of the gardens, the beauty of the plants, and the whimsy of the decorations. Congratulations and thank you, to Dave and Brandy on an outstanding landscaping job from the Keep La Marque Beautiful Commission. - Photos and story by Vivian Allen, KLMBC Treasurer and Yard of the Month Chair.
