Harrell and Susan Queen of 2816 Coxindale finished first and are our October Yard of the Month. This is the 7th time the Queens have placed in the finals. They finished second in November of 2012, second in June and July and 3rd in August and September. It seems that their yard always looks perfectly maintained and the flush of the encore azaleas added that needed extra dash of color.
2nd Place – 8508 Wheeling
Finishing a very close second are Bryan and Kristen Maness of 8508 Wheeling. This is their second time placing in the top three and their yard could easily get recognition for most improved. All their work last year in putting down zoysia sod has paid of with a lush carpet of lawn that invites one to nestle into the chairs under the shade of the oaks and pines.
Finishing third are Ed and Jeanne Burtoft at 2704 Coxindale. This is a first time for the Burtofts to join are top three, but probably not the last. The lawn is a lush green crapet punctuated by niclt pruned shrubs and colorful seasonal flowers.
Congratulations to each of the homeowners and thanks to Jamie Visocan and Larry Deckard who served with me on the judging panel.
