The Season’s Best award for Fall 2019 - Kristen & Brandon 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.
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!
