Yard of the Month

September YOM

July/August YOM

The July/August YOM was awarded to Brian & Courtney Heinz at 6310 Fair Valley Trail. At the peak of our summer heat, this yard was and is still attractive with its heat-tolerant plants and an inexpensive, but very effective, drip irrigation system that provides moisture every 6 days! After moving into the Fair Valley home a little over a year ago, Brian went to work removing the existing landscape, laying flagstone in crushed granite, creating a large patio in front of the house as well as two walkways from the sidewalk to house. They are looking for the right fire pit to add to the patio soon! Brian & Courtney wanted to create a low-maintenance yard as they stay busy with their two boys: Gavin, a 6th grader, and Greyson, a 4th grader. Shrubs in the yard include Sage, Japanese Yew, and Yucca. Other heat tolerant plants include Prickly Pear spineless cactus, Agave, Bulbine and more.

The family received gift cards totaling $120 from our four generous sponsors: Leaf Landscape, Klingemann’s Auto Care, Flores Mexican Food Restaurant and D’Lites Ice Cream. Westcreek appreciates the support from these businesses in our neighborhood!

June 2016 – Yard of the Month

The June Yard of the Month was awarded to the Hardy Family at 6302 Steer Trail. The Hardy’s yard serves as a perfect example of how a St. Augustine lawn can still provide a viable landscaping solution in a neighborhood such as Westcreek where we are fortunate to have so many large Oak and Elm trees. The fence line is made attractive with a nicely trimmed hedge and the addition of a flowerbed strategically placed in the sun at the curb provides a great POP of color with Knockout roses and cheery marigolds. The Harty’s were thrilled to be recognized and received gift cards and certificates valued at $120 from our four generous sponsors, Leaf Landscape, Klingemann Auto Care, Flores Mexican Food Restaurant and D’Lights Ice Cream. These businesses are all immediately adjacent to Westcreek and we certainly thank them for their support!

Congratulations to Margaret Ramirez for the work that she has put into her yard on Fair Valley Trail!! Her yard was selected as the Yard of the Month for May 2016. The landscape has developed over time and features an attractive crushed granite walkway from the corner to a nice sitting area in front of the house. The walkway is surrounded by a variety of textures and colors including natives, herbs, annuals and perennials such as turks cap, rosemary, pink skullcap and begonias. Mrs. Ramirez was awarded a $50 gift certificate from Leaf Landscape (formerly Emerald Gardens), a free oil change from Klingemann’s Auto Center valued at $35, a $20 gift card courtesy of Flores Mexican Restaurant and a $15 gift card from D’Lites Ice Cream!

April 2016 – Yard of the Month

Congratulations to Dennis and Martha Dillon on Earlyway Drive for earning the April Yard of the Month designation! The Dillons have resided in Westcreek for over 27 years and love being part of the neighborhood! They have developed and maintained their own landscape which has been a work in progress over the years. Special features of the yard include various flowerbeds featuring native and drought-tolerant plants. Landscaping of a side fence area with self-sufficient natives, perennials and herbs provides a carefree solution to the hot strip adjacent to the sidewalk. A special feature added this year is some colorful, cactus-style yard art which provides wonderful year-round color! The Dillon’s grown sons even got in on the action by gifting their parents with a custom-made accent planter. Many thanks to the Dillons for the nice example they set in maintaining an attractive yard that we can all enjoy!
