August Yard of the Month

1st Place - 2640 Iman

1st Place – 2640 Iman

Yard of the Month for August is awarded to Charles and Robin Markham of 2640 Iman Drive.  Their yard is at its best in the peak of summer.  The Bermuda grass lawn is a lush green carpet and the orange and yellow lantana add vibrant color.  This is the second time the Markhams have placed first, having done so in September 2011.

Finishing a very close second are Bryan and Kristen Maness of 8508 Wheeling.  This is their first 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. Look for more color this Fall to propel them into first…

 

Harrell and Susan Queen of 2816 Coxindale finished third. This is the fifth time the Queens have placed in the finals.  They finished second in November of 2012 and first in January of this year and second the last two months.  It seems that their yard always looks perfectly maintained.

This is the fourth time the Queens have placed in the finals.  They finished second in November of 2012 and first in January of this year and second last month.  It seems that their yard always looks perfectly maintained.

The Kennedys are again a contender, and one look makes it easy to see why they are always in the running.  One of Graham’s friends commented that “he thinks Graham combs the grass to be sure all the blades line up.”
