Season's Best Award - Spring
The Seasons Best award for Spring has been given to the McKinneys at 7601 Twelve Oaks. In the two years they've been here, they have created a beautiful landscape with an amazing variety of plants. They have a number of fruit trees which are not only beautiful but do in fact produce delicious fruit. Underneath the traditional trees and shrubs are exotic and colorful flowering plants--everywhere you look! The pictures cannot do it justice so please take a walk and enjoy it up close. Thank you to the McKinneys for giving our neighborhood the gift of a colorful, whimsical, beautiful landscape.
The Seasons Best award for Summer will be in July. All HOA members are eligible and nominations are welcome. (email@example.com)
Holiday/Winter - The Armijo Family at 7505 Shadow Lawn
The EFCHOA Winter Seasons Best award was given to the Armijo Family at 7505 Shadow Lawn. This landscape has 3 mature Live Oaks, 2 stunning Japanese maples and front flower beds full of plantings that look tropical but somehow came through our February freeze as lush and beautiful as ever. Our thanks for a lovely landscape and festive holiday lights for the neighborhood to enjoy!
Fall - The Boelsterlis at 3404 Wheatland Lane
The Fall Season's Best award has been given to Brian and Julie Boelsterli at 3404 Wheatland Lane. The mature live oaks beautifully frame this house as well as provide shade for a couple of lovely Japanese maples. The circle drive, which could be simply utilitarian, is also a design feature--visitors on the front walk are greeted by an inscribed Texas star. Enjoy the pictures of a landscape that provides lots of interesting ideas for a mature yard where shade presents a challenge. Our thanks to the Boelsterlis.
The Winter Season's Best will be selected in the middle of December. We're looking for a nice landscape and festive holiday decor. All HOA members are eligible.
Summer - The Edlings at 7521 White Castle
The Seasons Best award for summer '21 was given to the Edlings at 7521 White Castle. This yard shows a great response to the deep shade of a mature tree--in this case a lovely Red Oak. Remove struggling turf, accept the shade and enjoy the plants that will thrive in it--hydrangeas, hostas, ferns, etc. A large swath of annual flowers and the pink hydrangeas provide good color despite the shade. Our thanks to the Edlings for this beautiful landscape we can all enjoy.
SPRING - Mark and Linda Weintrub at 3709 Tidewater
