November 2020 Yard of the Month: 619 Greenleaf Drive

Congratulations to the owners at 619 Greenleaf Drive! Please read what they had to say about their yard

We are so thrilled to have the sign back in our yard! For the last few years we’ve really made an effort to do full seasonal change outs from bulbs in spring to lush colorful annuals in the summer, then autumnal pumpkins, crotons and peppers with a final swap of cabbage, kale, winter floral and conifer greenery at year’s end. Autumn is probably our favorite as it’s the most dramatic change aesthetically. We like to plant large 3 gallon crotons around a tree ring and throughout the larger front bed. A truck load of pumpkins and ornamentals cascading down our short porch steps can make a fun impact and we absolutely love mixing in peppers (black especially), marigolds, and mums in varying sizes and colors as well. Some years we might even have some corn stalks to give the garden some vertical interest. We appreciate the support!
