September 2022 YoM

The September Yard of the Month was awarded to Coleman Hutcheson and wife Elizabeth Frye at 6520 Fair Valley. The couple moved into their home in 2019 and during the 2020 Pandemic, Elizabeth began designing the new xeriscape yard. The yard held up beautifully in this summer’s intense heat and dryness. The majority of the front yard is covered in river rock and features a lazy river of larger stones to provide better drainage in the yard. Zoysia grass is planted in a small area of the front yard and it completely covers the back yard which is also a beautifully landscaped area! Purple Vitex flanks the driveway and a variety of native grasses grace the yard. Cone flowers, Lambs Ear, Foxtail Fern, Plumbago, and Lantana provide color & texture to the yard! Crepe Myrtles, Mexican Plum, and a Redbud tree are in the side yard. Plantings of Mexican Sage, prostate Rosemary, silver Ponyfoot, Datura moon flower, and climbing Rose complete the design. Elizabeth researched native plants and shopped at The Wildflower Center for the majority of their plants. 

The couple looks forward to using their gift cards awarded to them for YOM. These include a $50 card from Leaf Landscape, $45 card from Cypress Grill, and an oil change from Klingemann Automotive. Westcreek Neighborhood Association appreciates the ongoing support of these long-time sponsors!
