Yard of the Month

July 2019 YOM

Congratulations to Sandra & Scott Huston of 5114 Maulding Pass as they are the winners of YOM for July! Their lovely shaded yard is filled with big Crepe Myrtles and oak trees. As seen in these pictures, a granite pathway leads one to the front door and meanders through the beds in the yard. Sandra is proud of her collection of iris which came from her mom’s yard and are interspersed in the beds throughout the yard!
The Huston’s received gift cards from Leaf Nursery, Klingemann’s Automotive, D’Lite’s Ice Cream, & Cypress Grill!  WNA hopes you will frequent these sponsors & thank them for their support of our YOM program!
The Huston’s good mannered dog, Buddy, is also seen in the picture.  He brings in the mail from the mailbox each day!

June YOM

Congratulations going out to Daniel & Rebecca Galindo at the corner of Grider Pass & Yellow Rose Trail where their lovely yard is tucked away behind beautifully manicured Japanese Boxwoods on their corner lot. A Zoysia lawn surrounds blooming beds and a stately Sago Palm.
The Galindos were thrilled with the gift cards from our neighborhood sponsors. They received a $50 gift card from Leaf Landscape, a free oil change from Klingemann’s Automotive & a $15 gift Card to D’Lites .  We are so happy to announce our newest sponsor Cypress Grill who is awarding a $45 gift certificate!  We appreciate our local sponsors & hope you will thank them for their support when you do business with them! 
There are two requirements for yards to be considered for YOM:  you must be a paid member of WNA (only $20 for the year!) & trash & recycling bins must be out of view from the street!  Anyone can nominate a yard for consideration by emailing the WNA Board or YOM Chair Barbara Huffman at bhuffman1@austin.rr.com.  It’s not too late to join WNA so that we can consider YOUR yard & you,too, could win $145 worth of Gift Cards from our wonderful sponsors!!

April YOM

Congratulations to Karen Ashorn for her fantastically beautiful display of Bluebonnets!! Well worth your drive down Yellow Rose Trail to 6302 Sanderson Ave to see this incredible array of our State flower!  Pose your family on the sidewalk, get down low & take grand pictures that look like you are in a bluebonnet field...& not one bluebonnet is damaged!! 
Look for a picture of a proud Karen with her YOM sign that I will take when she gets home from her teaching job at Oak Hill Elementary!  Karen receives gift certificates from Leaf Landscaping ($50), Klingemann’s Automotive (free oil change), and D’Lites Ice Cream ($15).  An additional sponsor will be added this month!  Thank you to these wonderful sponsors for their continued support!

YOM July 2018

Congratulations go out to Gail & Barry McAtee at 6315 Steer Trail for their lovely yard.  Among the plants in the yard are Japanese Boxwoods, large Swordfern, Nandinas, & two large Pine Trees!  Gail was thrilled with my presentation of YOM & quickly showed me a picture from 20 years ago when they had won YOM!  That’s farther back than my records go! In the backyard, Gail & Barry showed me the Texas shaped brick patio they had installed and, it was here that they were married! In the picture with Gail & Barry is their sweet dog Bella. Gift certificates from Leaf Landscape, Klingemann’s Auto, & D’Lites Ice Cream were presented to the couple.  Be sure to frequent these shops and please thank these neighborhood businesses for their support of our YOM program!
