The Newark Garden Club presented its 2018 Civic Beautification Award to Melanie’s Mane Attraction, 415 N. Main St., Newark.
Salon owner Melanie Clingerman has been a stylist for 39 years. She was raised in Newark and attended local schools.
Clingerman does all the gardening at her salon. This year, she featured boxwood shrubs, hostas, hanging basket and a 3-foot pot of variegated coleus plants by the door. Pink impatiens line both sides of the walk. She also added lawn art, which now features a fall/harvest motif.
Since 1990, the club annually recognizes businesses that do outstanding work in landscaping and beautifying their properties. Newark Garden Club is affiliated with the 7th District State Federation of Garden Clubs Inc. and National Garden Clubs Inc.
