January Yard of the Month


1st Place – 2504 Sugar Maple

It’s a new year and we have a new Yard of the Month! For January we would like to recognize Kimberly Hicks of 2504 Sugar Maple. The vibrant green lawn is testament that North Carolina lawns can look really good in winter.  Fresh mulch covers the beds and colorful pansies add the right punch of color.  This is the third time that Kimberly has made first place in the last 4 years.

Finishing  second are Michael and Sheri Farmer

2nd Place - 8524 Averell

2nd Place – 8524 Averell

of 8524 Averell. Their corner lot always looks great this time of year.  In fact, they have a first place finish during each of the last three years. It’s always a treat to see their home as we drive into the neighborhood.


2708 Coxindale2

3rd Place – 2708 Coxindale

In third is Mimi Raub of 2708 Coxindale. Her home shows what can be done with fresh pine straw and plantings.  Mimi, too, is no stranger to Yard of the Month, having finshed first in May of last year.  And we’re sure this won’t be the last time we see Mimi in the finals.



Congratulations to each of the homeowners for their consistent quality care they give to their homes and yards and thanks to  Jamie Visocan who assisted me on the judging panel.

    It was nice to be able to report here in February, when everything was covered in snow, January results where the lawns were still nice and green. But it’s North Carolina – we’ll see 70 degrees again next week!

    Very beautiful lawn. It can be difficult to keep your lawn looking green and healthy during the winter months. A lot of work went into keeping this lawn looking amazing.
