October Yard of the Month is awarded to 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!
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 sixth time the Stowers have finished in the finals since 2012.
Finishing third are Mark and Christy Frisbee of 8308 Yucca. The home was Yard of the Month in March of 2011, then owned by Cindy Perry. Since they arrived in September, the Frisbees have uncluttered the appearance of the front by removing the overgrown arborvitae shrubs by the front door.
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.
