Yard of the Month

YOM October 2017

YOM for October was recently awarded to Carl & Wendy Gamble of 6553 Fair Valley.  A clean well-manicured yard accented by large pots of blooming plants makes for a peaceful, tranquil yard.  Carl enjoys maintaining the yard as well as building wren bird houses! 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!

YOM June 2017

The June 2017 Yard of the Month was awarded to Bob and Helenanne Busa at 6101 Sun Vista. The family celebrates 25 years of living in Westcreek. The harsh, hot and dry summers of 2010-11 motivated them to remove their St. Augustine lawn, replacing it with Zoysia grass which requires less water. Additionally, they planted a majority of the front yard with heat tolerant, booming native plants which have done very well over the years! Thanks to our wonderful YOM sponsors, the Busa’s received gift cards from Leaf Landscape, D’Lites Ice Cream, Flores Mexican Restaurant and Klingemann’s Automotive.
