Every two years, the yards and gardens of homes and businesses across the country are speckled with rigid, 24" x 18" plastic signs displaying names of hopeful candidates at every level. But yard signs, as they’re commonly known, don’t have to be restricted to the political arena, put away after the votes are tallied, and disregarded until the next election season.
