The October 2018 Yard of the Month belongs to Susan Hurst at 622 Lockwood Drive. Here is what she had to say about her yard:
What an honor and surprise to be selected by the Heights Park Neighborhood Association as Yard of the Month.
I purchased this home in the 1990s and it has always held a special place in my heart. We have been through several remodels and yard renovations during that time. Life changes, but the charm of these homes, captivating landscapes, and of course the love of our neighbors, are everlasting.
We are fortunate to still have four of the original trees, two of which are native pecan. The shade from these wonderful trees is really a blessing during those hot summers. I am very passionate about flowers or bushes with color. Red Texas sage, lantana, cone flowers, purple shamrocks and spider lilies are just a few of my favorite perennials. I love walking the neighborhood and seeing everyone’s take on their favorite decorative and inspirational touches.
We have been blessed throughout our time here and look forward to seeing what the future brings. Thanks again for the wonderful recognition. I appreciate not only my Heights Park neighbors, but also the great neighbors throughout our city.
