Yard of the Month Program
Yard of the Month, is an OLHNA program that is sponsored by North Haven Nursery. Each month the committee members of this program, will locate the best looking yard in the neighborhood. If your house is selected, you will be given a Yard Of the Month sign and a gift certificate to North Haven. All the more reason to keep your yard looking great!
OLH's October 2017 Yard of the Month is 530 Northlake Drive
Nan Kirby moved in ten years ago and then noticed that the one tree in her west-facing back yard wasn’t enough to provide the shade she wanted. She has planted crepe myrtles, maples, a Chinese pistache and a weeping yaupon holly and now has plenty of shade and dapples shade for her front yard. She also added curved beds with big rock accents and a meandering dry river bed. Her plants include red and yellow yuccas, autumn sages, passion vine so she could raise butterflies, and peppers and tomatoes for herself. She has lots of bearded iris which make a lovely show in the spring. She is replacing the azaleas that came with the property as they die off with plants that are more appropriate for our growing conditions. The OLH Yard of the Month team would like to thank North Haven Gardens for their continued support by providing gift cards to our winners. October is our last month for the year but the program will be back next spring. OLH- the holiday season is a upon us and OLHNA will be gearing up for our Holiday Yard Decoration Contest. Get those creative juices flowing and tap into your inner Clark Griswold. Stay tuned for details in the coming weeks!
