Yard of the Month

YoM July 2020

The Yard of the Month for July is the home of Clayton and Laci Smith at 5408 Wolf Run.

Clayton and Laci and their dog, Boo Bear have been part of our neighborhood for five years and enjoy the convenience, location, and neighbors of Westcreek.  

Laci and Clayton were inspired by walking the neighborhood to see the native plants others had included in their landscaping and set a goal of creating a low maintenance yard utilizing plants of varying heights and textures. Living with Austin’s water restrictions lead them to a decision to xeriscape.  Working with Leaf Landscape Supply, they selected native plants – Blackfoot daisies, a selection of grasses, artemisia, bottle brush, ocotillo, and Santa Rita Prickly pear.  Two new trees were added, a burr oak and desert willow.  They installed hardscape using a combination of decomposed granite, Oklahoma Pecan patio stone, and river rock.   Other features include the planter of succulents by their front walk and the driftwood Clayton found on a hike that was added to the front bed.  

They enjoy taking care of their yard  and see it as a form of beauty they can shape and care for as it fills in and matures.  Along with the recognition as Yard of the Month, they receive gift certificates from  Leaf Landscape, Klingemann’s Car Care Center,  D’Lites Ice Cream , and Cypress Grill. 

Drive by, see the sign for Yard of the Month, and enjoy the creativity and hard work they have poured into their yard!

Congratulations to Eric and Jodis Kyler at 6200 Sun Vista, the winners of the Yard of the Month for May.  Eric and Jodis have been part of our Westcreek neighborhood since 2001,  They enjoy the benefits of having great neighbors as well as the proximity to town, Dripping Springs, and the schools.  Jodis is active in the PTA and the Booster Club. They both enjoy working in their yard and it shows!

Their rockwork flower bed in their front yard is one of their favorite features.  It is filled with colorful plants like firecracker ferns, native grasses, and blooming shrubs . A large sago palm graces a bed by their front driveway.    The greenery, rockwork, and large tree make for a green and well-manicured space!

August 2019 YOM

Congratulations to Vikki & Jack Amstey at 6211 Smith Oak.  Their lush green yard is accented with bright pink Bougainvillea and various colors of Hibiscus in pots around the yard. A large Pride of Barbados adds a contrast of orange and yellow to the landscape. Having lost their Live Oaks in the front yard to Oak Wilt, they planted a Chinquapin Oak, purchased at Leaf Landscape five years ago with their YOM gift certificate!  The Ansteys are original homeowners who have lived in Westcreek since 1983!
They received gift certificates from our wonderful YOM sponsors Leaf Landscape, Klingemann Auto Center, D’Lites IceCream, and Cypress Grill.  A big thanks to these neighborhood sponsors!

It’s not too late to pay your $20 dues so that we can consider your yard for Yard of the month and you,too, could receive over $140 in gift certificates!
