Collington is now awarding both a Yard of the Month AND a Lawn of the Month prize to 2 lucky recipients monthly from May to October. Each recipient will receive a $25 gift card to Lowes, recognition on the Collington HOA fb page, and a sign in their yard for a month proclaiming their winning status.
This beautiful yard belongs to Jerry and Paula Jarvis. It is such a pleasing combination of different annuals, perennials, and some fun festive decorative elements. Paula likes to add begonias every year, as they do well in both sun and shade for her. Jerry makes sure to spray neem oil about every 3 weeks, in the morning, to prevent insect problems. They both take pride in having a nice yard, and their efforts have not gone unnoticed.
This gorgeous lawn belongs to Steve Demeyer. He contracts with a lawn service for fertilizing, and weed/insect control, but mows and maintains the lawn himself. He attributes his success to keeping the mower deck up as high as possible, and watering 3x per week at 45 minutes each time. Great work, Steve!
