In top place for Yard of the Month are Graham and Alice Kennedy of 8516 Wheeling. Their home always has a neat manicured look, no matter what the season. This is the sixteenth time that the Kennedys have placed in the finals in the last two years, having placed first in June of 2012. Check out the new summer flowers in the front beds. Thank you, Kennedys, for consistently keeping your home one of the top ones in Alyson Pond.
Finishing second are Paul and Marie Stowers of 2505 Coxindale . The yard looks crisp and tidy and the splash of color by the mailbox is a welcoming touch. This is the fourth time the Stowers have finished in the finals since 2012.
Finishing third are Gina and Jonathan Kinlaw of 2905 Funster. The fresh green lawn and shrubs are contrasted by the vibrant purple of the tradescantia and yellow lantana. They are the new kids on the Yard of the Month block this year, but were a first-place finisher in June of 2012. Keep up the good work!
Congratulations to each of the homeowners for the consistent quality care they give to their homes and yards and thanks to Larry Deckard and Jamie Visocan who assisted me on the judging panel.
