The Season’s Best award for Spring 2020 - Shernaz and Jayant Mohanty at 7505 Breakers Lane

 

This landscape has new stone/brick edging for the front beds which solved an erosion problem and allowed for renewed St Augustine turf.  The landscape is lovely combination of perennials (Stella D'Oro daylilies, Columbine, Hosta, Heuchera, Autumn fern), annuals (Scarlet "whopper" begonias and caladiums) and two stunning Japanese maples underneath a beautiful Red Oak tree.  In addition, the Mohanty's beautified and upgraded the plantings around an electrical box that straddles their yard and the neighbor's.

 
 

     

 

 

 

  
 
PAST WINNERS
 
2019
FALL - The Pillans at 3908 Guston Hall Court
 
This fairly new landscape (by Knight Design and Consulting) "looks like" Texas. It is drought tolerant and includes soft yucca, Color Guard yucca, feather grass, Salvia Greggii and boulders. The property has a beautiful, mature Red Oak and a tall Little Gem magnolia to give it a strong foundation while the beds and plantings are changed and grow to maturity. The homeowner says they are very happy with the new turf which is Zoysia.
 
    
SUMMER - The Palmers at 3409 Mount Vernon

The annuals are beautiful despite the extreme heat and lack of rain. The yard has an evergreen foundation of shrubs and tree-form Yaupon hollies. In order to make room for color, the homeowner extended the beds another 2’ recently and put in a lovely border of alyssum (waning due to heat but he says it will have another flush of blooming in the fall) and vincas (he says the secret to vincas is coffee grounds). There are also caladiums and cannas beyond the border among the shrubs for added color and interest.  Thanks for your efforts to beautify our neighborhood!

 

      

 

 
 
 
SPRING - The Spurlocks at 7404 White Castle
This landscape has been completely renovated with a very nice stone-accented border for the enlarged beds. The shrubs will continue to expand as they mature and in the meantime there is plenty of room and lots of full sun for annual color-- vincas, zinnias, etc. Two Crepe Myrtles provide a nice frame for the house and a beautiful Red Oak was added as part of the renovation as well. Thanks to the Spurlocks and all the residents who make an effort to beautify our neighborhood.
