Yard of the Month


811  Kingswood Ave

The landscape of Stephanie Angel’s home is well-maintained with greening lawn,  trees budding, red  tulips peeking high in the tub, trimmed bushes,  and perennials in pots lining the entrance walk are appearing to show variety of colors for spring.   After selling her Dallas home three years ago, Stephanie and her sweet little dog named Suzie chose to move here because four of her siblings live nearby.  She said that she enjoys the beautiful parks, a more relaxed pace, wonderful and diverse people, cultures and the food. She also enjoys the amenities Richardson has to offer.

Stephanie is an organic gardener and grow herbs and flowers specifically for the butterflies and moths and have been pleased to  observe a wider range of visitors with each passing year.  She added a new Mason Bee house as she is a pollinator friendly provider.  She enjoys the variety of birds and always keeps her Bird ID book handy.  Her puppy Suzie’s favorite pastime is her daily Squirrel & Possum Patrol that offers her quick bursts of energy to “run up to the tree and bark” and then rest up for the next event.

Stephanie said “Thank you for the honor of being Yard of the Month!  It is timely and I am very appreciative.”  She was coming home from her surgery the day her yard was chosen for Yard of the Month!  She also said that her family was a little envious.:-) and she promised to make her zone proud.  Thank you Stephanie for helping to keep the neighborhood beautiful!



The home of the Bratcher family looks very enticing to little ones to want to swing from the huge oak tree- so much fun!  They moved to Richardson about a year ago and love it!  They said that they really appreciate how friendly their neighbors have been in welcoming them to the neighborhood and enjoy the convenience of having nearby eateries.

At the time of purchase, the yard was nicely landscaped with shrubs in the front and back with ground-covering plants under the large oak trees, which require very little maintenance and provides plenty of shade during the hot summer months. Becca likes to have pots of flowering plants amidst the groundcover and at the entrance and walkway in the front area.

Greenwood Hills is so happy  your family is part of our neighborhood!
