Yard of the Month=Jerry Whitaker of 9900 Brading Lane.

Jerry had been creating beautiful flowerbeds for 15 years at this location. When he first moved in, he dug up all the clay and replaced it with a garden soil mixture. It has been a love affair with plants ever since! He grows many different varieties of roses, vincas, asiatic lilies, gardenias, dahlias, azaleas, and his personal favorite, white calla lilies. He attributes his success to trial and error, and Miracle Gro, applied anywhere between weekly and monthly, depending on plant needs. He is now sharing his love of plants with his grandchildren, who like to help him in the garden. Thank you, Jerry, for helping to make Collington beautiful!
July Lawn of the Month = Weldon & Karen King, and Kimberly Saunders of 14424 Parracombe Lane

The July Lawn of the Month goes to Weldon King, Karen King, and Kimberly Saunders of 14424 Parracombe Lane. Even with all the July heat, they have managed to keep their lawn looking lush, green, and inviting. Weldon only uses a battery mower, set at the highest deck setting (estimated about 4”). The lawn is mowed once a week, and the edges trimmed with a weed eater. They have a lawn service for feeding and aeration. In addition to their lovely front lawn, they have also created a lush area in their back yard, with a green swath of lawn, undulating borders filled with statuary, hibiscus and crape myrtle, all overlooking the golf course. What a tranquil oasis!
