Congratulations to David Robison and his family for winning Yard of the Month for May 2011! Their front lawn and flowerbeds are always beautifully maintained.

The gardeners here make great use of the trees found in their front yard. This front area has been deemed a certified wildlife habitat. This yard is well maintained a beautiful. Congratulations and thanks for making our HillCrest neighborhood a better place!
March Winner
Erlinda Stewart
11317 Kingsgate

It’s always nice to drive or walk by this residence to see what’s going on in the front lawn. There seems to be something in bloom at all times either against the house or in the neatly positioned flowerbeds bordering the sidewalk. New plantings and maintenance are always occurring. The lawn is an excellent example of how beautiful Zoysia grass can be for a residence.  The tight fine blades give a sense of plush carpeting. The edging is crisp and the overall impression is clean and elegant. Congratulations and thanks on a great job!

Nora E. Marroquin
2217 Kaiser



It was nice to see so much green in a yard in the middle of winter.  The landscape provides an interesting solution to the slope of the yard.  An attractive circle walk is surrounded by shrubs and catches the attention immediately.  The landscape overall is very is well-kept and neat with plants close to the house that emphasize and complement its design.
