Yard of the Month

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!

YOM December 2017

Congratulations goes out to the Sanders family at 6529 Fair Valley Trail for their holiday lights this month! Richie and his wife Deborah have lived in Westcreek for fourteen years and regularly join WNA as they value the services of the organization. Their daughter Brianna is responsible for hanging the rooftop lights which was formerly her brother Brandon’s job but he is away at college so the job fell to her! Richie is behind the rest of the decor & lighting which is synchronized to music. The WNA appreciates the support of the Sanders family and thanks them for their lovely light display! They were rewarded with gift certificates from our YOM sponsors totaling $120! We thank LEAF Landscape, Klingemann Auto, Flores Mexican Restaurant and D’Lites Ice Cream for their generous contributions to this program.

Yard of the Month Committee Chair, Barbara Huffman, was delighted to take one home as a token of Carl’s appreciation! The Gambles look forward to cashing in those gift cards provided by our YOM sponsors!

YOM September 2017

Yard of the Month for September was awarded to Iris Sims of 6537 Fair Valley.  Iris and her family are original homeowners, having lived here since 1983.  Pictured here with the YOM sign is Iris with her daughter Chondra Mills and husband Christopher. The yard features lovely Red Bud trees, Texas Hibiscus, and pink Lantana.  Additional Lavender plants, Vinca, and Pride of Barbados add color to the yard.  The dense St.Augustine lawn is lovingly hand watered by hose early in the morning and late summer evenings by Iris.  She says this is her quiet time and she enjoys it!

YOM July/August 2017

The July / August YOM was awarded to Bill and Alice Wiley at 6012 Morning Dew where they have developed a heat and drought tolerant yard that the committee has been admiring all season. Even during this very hot and dry summer, their yard is attractive and inviting! Turks Cap, verbena and other Texas natives are used throughout the yard. Congratulations to the Wiley family!
