September’s Yard of the Month is awarded to 17-year residents of Bryan Place, Linda and Gary Collins. While the summer sun is scorching, this garden has remained lush and colorful! Their large, corner yard is dotted with Azaleas, Mexican Petunias, and varieties of Day Lilies. The blooms continue on the other side of their driveway with Camellias and, Linda’s favorite, Coral Bark Maple trees, which lose their leaves in winter as their bark turns bright red!

The Collins have achieved the perfect balance of greens, flowers, stones and trees. But my personal favorite is the little bench in the center of it all where you can sit and enjoy nature!
