December 2016 Yard of the Month!

December 2016 Yard of the Month!

December: Lynda Leverett and Frank Norris, 639 Northill Drive

Comments from the homeowners:

We are honored to be chosen December Decorated Yard of the Month. We love decorating for Christmas inside and outside. While I do the inside, Frank does most of the outside. He made the Cowboy Santa roping the Reindeer years ago. Every year he says let’s not put him out and I say no way – to me putting the Cowboy Santa out means to start decorating. We’ve added different things to compliment him but he is always the center of the outside decorations. Thank you again for appreciating our outside decorated yard. Merry Christmas and Happy New Year!

Lynda and Frank

November: Chris Michero & Steven DePuy, 619 Greenleaf

Comments from the homeowners:

Happy Fall Y’all! We are very excited to be awarded YOM for November. We absolutely love getting the truck filled up this time of year with a variety of pumpkins, gourds, crotons, pepper plants and mums. We’ve found placing the groupings on the sidewalk and out of the flower beds and grass help deter the roly poly bugs from digging into the pumpkins from the bottom and sealing a quick fate. If we do place them in beds or lawns we always use an upside down terracotta saucer to keep it dry and not directly in the bugs territory. If you do find some holes or bites all you need to do is squeeze a little super glue (the clear kind) into the crevice and it seals it up nicely. The only thing that would make this win even better would be if it actually felt like autumn outside. We’re ready!!

Thanks Heights Park! We do love our little neighborhood and our patch of green here on Greenleaf.

October: Daniel and Loren Meager, 623 Stardust Ln

Comments from the homeowners:

Happy Fall Y’all!! We are truly blessed to be award the YOM for October. We moved to the neighborhood a little over three years and our number one goal was to have a yard that the neighborhood and our selfs could be proud of. We had to start from scratch with the whole landscape with our house being a complete “fixer upper”. We always said how awesome it would be if we could get our yard up to standards to get a YOM award! With fall being our favorite time of year my wife and I really enjoy putting all the fun decor and plants out that go with it. We love this neighborhood and our neighbors are very special to us and our two young boys. Happy fall and everyone have a blessed holiday season from 623 Stardust.

Thank you so much,

Daniel Meager
