LAWTON, OK (KSWO) - One elementary school in Southwest Oklahoma will receive a free landscaping makeover from 4-D Landscape in Lawton.They are asking the public to cast their vote for their favorite elementary school.
Owner, Danny Elkouri said it seems like elementary schools usually get left out. This makeover is the perfect way to give them something special and new.
4-D Landscape has been in Lawton for 27 years and Elkouri said this is the first time they have done the makeover competition.
"We wanted to sow back into the community and knowing that LPS have suffered a 3.4 million dollar budget cut we though this would be a nice way that they could enjoy something that we could give to them," said Elkouri.
Over 70 elementary schools from across Southwest Oklahoma have already entered the competition and Elkouri said the winner will receive landscaping that is personalized and fits their needs.
"We want it to be in a location that will have high traffic and it will also be conducive for care, we don't want to just do it and not cared for. We want to put it in a place where they will be able to maintain it," said Elkouri
Elkouri said the makeover will also be something students can enjoy.
"Children love to plant things and they love to water things, they just need that opportunity,"said Elkouri.

Elkouri said they pride themselves in making things better.
