July 2021 Yard of the Month

Congratulations to the owners at 714 Westwood Drive! Please read what they had to say about their yard

We are very excited and honored for our yard to be selected as the Yard of the Month for July 2021.  As you can see from the picture our caladiums are in full bloom in our flower beds.  We enjoy the landscaping in our yard and look forward to planting blooming flowers and plants that go with each seasonal change through the year.  We would like to thank George Opavsky our yardman and landscaper and his assistant Fidel for all the hard work they do each week maintaining our yard.  George owns Rain Forest Landscape.

We have lived in our house for over 40 years and our yard and landscape design has changed and evolved over the years.  Our newest addition to the yard is the swing we bought.  We hung the swing in our Live Oak tree near the front sidewalk.  The great thing about the swing is that when the young families are out walking with their children, it’s amazing how kids love to stop and get in the swing.  That is always fun to see and also helps us get to know the neighbors.  

Heights Park is a great neighborhood to live in and we would like to “thank” our Heights Park Neighborhood Association for sponsoring this award and what HPNA does to make Heights Park a great place for all of us to live in and enjoy.  If you are interested in starting to work on your yard’s landscape plan or continue to improve and add to your yard, there are many resources available close by for you to use.  If you do nothing else, drive around our neighborhood and get ideas from what others have done with their yards and start and continue improving the landscape in your yard.  If you do, you will have fun and enjoy the project and you will also increase the value of your home.  Thanks again for the recognition and for receiving this month’s Yard of the Month Award.
